Video: Melanie Hill on joining Corrie as Roy's new friend

Melanie Hill, who will be on screen soon in Coronation Street as Roy's new lady friend Cathy Matthews, was interviewed on ITV's Loose Women today.

They showed a clip of Roy and Sharif meeting Cathy on the allotment, which we'll see on Corrie on Monday 20th April.  

Melanie said that feedback so far has been great from fans. She's coming into Corrie to play Roy's friend. Cathy is a lady who has lost her husband and she and Roy bond over their grief, two lost souls together.  But does she have an ulterior motive? Cathy teased a little on that!

She said she's nervous about watching her first scenes and will be reading comments on twitter while drinking a large glass of wine to calm her nerves.  She's over the moon about joining Corrie and couldn't believe it when her agent asked her to go for the audition and screen test with David Neilson, who plays Roy. She says she's never been so nervous in all of her life.

She also announced that her daughter is expecting a baby and she's going to be a grandmother!

VERY happy to see Melanie Hill on Corrie. She was great in Waterloo Road.

The "ulterior motive" bit got me thinking and now I am 99% sure I have worked out who Cathy is. A quick look at what happens when Cathy visits Roy next week; and just thinking about it sensibly led me to realise that the death of Hayley and the death of Cathy's husband is not the only link between them. This other link is something else or should I say SOMEONE ELSE.

That's if I'm right, of course. ;)
