Corrie's Becky to star in Doctor Who spin-off

Katherine Kelly, who played Becky McDonald in Coronation Street, is going to be starring in a Doctor Who spin-off called Class.

Katherine has been cast as a teacher in Class.

Award-winning Class creator Patrick Ness said: "How lucky we are to get Katherine Kelly! She's been stunning in Happy Valley, The Night Manager and Mr Selfridge, just wait until you see her here."

Class is the latest of several Doctor Who spin-off shows aimed at younger audiences, including Totally Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The eight-part series will be shown on BBC Three later this year.

Good for her. I'm glad she's doing well since leaving the show.

Such a fine actress,and from Barnsley.
A shame but I doubt she will ever tread the cobbles again.
Just like Suranne Jones, she learnt her craft on the street.

I think that shows you the calibre of Coronation Street direction and those wonderful scripts.

I hope we see Happy Valley in Canada SOON.
