Top 60 Corrie Characters - Nos. 26 and 25

26. Sophie Webster 1994- (68 votes)

The youngest daughter of Kevin and Sally and since Brooke Vincent took up the role in 2004 Sophie has become her own character. She’s pretended to be pregnant, converted to Christianity and became the first lesbian character on Corrie. She’s portrayed as strong-willed, determined and expresses sarcasm towards her parents, her sister Rosie, busybody Norris and employer Dev. After dating Ben Richardson, she discovered her true sexuality when she fell for best friend Sian Powers in 2010. They became engaged and planned to marry in 2011 but Sophie had cold feet following her attraction to Amber Kalirai. Sian left the street and since then Sophie seems lost, especially since Rosie left for London earlier this year.

25. Leanne Barlow (known as Battersby) 1997-2000, 2004- (72 votes)
She’s blossomed from a terrible teen into a responsible mother. Part of the hellish Battersby clan, she’s now become a Street favourite. She’s been married to Nick Tilsley and is now married to Peter Barlow. Her storylines over the years have included having a forced abortion, becoming a drug addict, working as a belly dancer, becoming an escort that inevitably led to client Paul Connor’s death, trying to help boyfriend and later hubby Peter to fight alcoholism and having an affair with ex-husband Nick. As well as Nick and Peter, Leanne’s conquests include Vikram Desai, Jamie Baldwin, Danny Baldwin, Liam Connor and Dan Mason.

Surely Brooke had all her friends and rellies vote for her....how else could she be lumped in with the great Jane Danson - boggles the mind.

Sophie Webster? your joking !!

I like Sophie Webster! I think she hasn't had a great deal recently but I think she has a great underused potential. I think this is a fair position.

But I am sorry Leanne/Jane Danson isn't higher. She's next to Roy Cropper in my unsung heroes list!

I agree with above. Sophie has so many potential. And Jane/Leanne should be much higher :)
