Emmerdale siren joins Coronation Street

Claire King, who played Emmerdale siren / bitch / bad girl Kim Tate is joining Coronation Street - as Nick Tilsley's girlfriend.

The official Coronation Street website reports that Claire King will play Erika, who arrives in Weatherfield in December to catch up with her mate Liz McDonald.The pair met in Spain when Erika landed a job at Liz’s bar, so when she arrives back in England Erika seeks Liz out.

And she wastes no time in seducing Nick, putting a spring back in his step.

Claire starts filming next month and will be on screen for a few weeks in December before Erika jets back off to Spain at the end of the year - leaving Nick wondering exactly what hit him!

Producer Stuart Blackburn said: “Erika is a woman who lives life to the full, Nick doesn’t stand a chance once she has set her sights on him, but he’s not complaining! We are delighted to have Claire on board to play Erika, she is a fabulous actress who will be a great addition to the cast.”

Claire King said: “I am beyond thrilled to be joining the cast of Coronation Street playing the funny and feisty Erika who looks certain to ruffle a few feathers once her high heels hit those world famous cobbles! A stint in Corrie is one of those ticks on most actor's bucket list of jobs you dream of doing, so I can’t wait to start filming in a few weeks time!"

Another soap hopping character. Why cant we ever have new faces. Having said that I like Clare King and lets hope she is as good as she was as Kim Tate and not fall short like Michelle Collins and Jimmi Mystry.
