New Corrie character - meet Maddie Heath

Sophie Webster's new girlfriend, Maddie, will make her debut on Coronation Street on Christmas Day and there's a good interview with Amy Kelly, who'll play Maddie, at itv.com/corrie today.

ITV reveals that Maddie comes from a dysfunctional family, she's a complex character who doesn't let people get too close. 

Amy says this about playing Maddie on Corrie: "I love playing Maddie because of how hard you have to try to get your head around her; there’s just no figuring her out and I think maybe that’s why Sophie is so drawn to her – she wants to be the one to work her out. Maddie is impressed with Sophie’s determination, but she keeps her on her toes!"

Amy impressed the Coronation Street casting agents in her audition, despite it being her first ever screen test.

She said: "My audition was on Friday 13th, so I guess it’s not so unlucky after all! I got the scripts and all along I said I’ll be happy if I just get as far as a screen test. Then once I found out that I had a screen test, I started thinking: ‘You know what… This is possible… I could actually do this…’ When I got the call saying I’d been offered the part (I was on the bus home from college when my phone rang so I had to contain my reaction) I honestly could not believe it. Neither could my mum!"

From a dysfunctional family? It will make a nice change from all the Bradys and the Waltons on the street.
