Faye Brookes on Kate Connor's new love: "It will shock people"


Faye Brookes, who plays Coronation Street's Kate Connor has confirmed that Kate will be getting a new love interest. And she says that fans won't be happy about who it is.

Ooh!

In an interview with The Sun Online, Faye says: “There’s love coming her way. Which I think she so rightly deserves after what she’s going through but it’s completely unexpected. I’m thrilled about it.  I don’t know whether the general public are going to take to it, I just know it’s going to shock people for the right reasons.”

“I think this love interest is just what Weatherfield needs – it’s not what you expect at all."

But Faye did confirm that it would be a woman and Kate wouldn’t be falling in love with a man.

“I’m not even going to pander to that, Kate knows who she is," she said.


It's been rumoured that Kate's new love interest might be Rana Nazir - and Corrie have already confirmed that there's a big summer storyline coming Rana's way. You can read more on that here.

I wonder who it'll be and if indeed it will be Rana?

I won't be happy if it's Rana. She is newly wed, and it would be nice if she and Zeedan had a more pleasant storyline surrounding the street food van. I didn't like Rana when she first arrived, but she has grown on me, and seems a better actress when she is a nicer character. Alya would be a better choice imo , and we could see Rana and Zeedan handle the news, as well as Yasmeen.

Eve might be a good choice. Split up from Aidan this could fall into her revenge plan.

It's Alya. A few weeks ago, Rana, Alya and Kate went to a bar for gay people and Alya was looking around with interest.

Come Back Emily said...

I'd like it to be Alya as being lesbian and Muslim would be interesting to explore, as well as what Yasmeen and Zeedan would think. Alya hasn't has a storyline in a while too.

Izzy was suggested on Digital Spy Forums which would be interesting, maybe not in a good way.

I also hope it's Alya rather than Rana.
I also like Rana and Zeedan as a couple and would like to see them remain a happily married couple rather than in another affair storyline.
I also wonder is affairs all the writers can think up for the Connors?
First it was Michelle's brief fling with Will,then Aidan betraying Eva with Maria and now possibly Kate with Rana?
Perhaps they should be renamed 'The Cheating Connors'?

Rana amd Zeedan are one of the few happy couples. I really hope they don't split them. Kate and Alya would make for a far more interesting storyline.

Louby said...

By the time it happens it will be anything but shocking.

It's been leaked anyway. Won't say here, but yawn.

At this point if Kate's new love were Schmichal, back as a zombie, I would not be shocked. Writers, here's a hint, you can only push the envelope if you have not torn it into shreds previously.

Maricha said...

Not sure why we'd be shocked.

More like wondering if this is just a phase if the character turns out to be Alya. She was obviously straight as she picked up Gary in a bar and even her drunken one night stand was with Jason. I'd be worried she was using Kate after being disappointed by guys and dump her if a great man came along.

Corriegated Cardboard said...

she could be bisexual. just because she has previously only dated men (that we know of) DOES NOT mean she can't be attracted to women too. bisexuality is real, and probably more common than you realise.

Maricha said...

Even so, since Kate is gay I'm assuming she's at an age where she wants to settle down. That would mean being with someone who wants her and only her. If she's Alya's first gay relationship how long-lasting would it be? Alya is flakey in her personal life.

Come Back Emily said...

Maybe Alya has just been scared of admitting she is bisexual because of her religion.
I could accept Alya as bisexual easily.

J said...

Could Louiza Patika's new Corrie character be Kate's new love interest?

Maricha said...

Possibly, but the spoilers about this a couple of months ago implied it was someone already in the cast at that time.

Aussie Pete said...

I bit left field, but after her horrible experiences over the last 6 months with men abusing her, could it possibly be Bethany?

Maricha said...

That would make sense.

Anonymous said...

Shudder at the thought of it being Bethany.

Anonymous said...

Kate is sensible. She would know that Bethany is still a vulnerable child and surely would keep well away. I will wait till the storyline unfolds. No doubt we will find out soon with the amount of spoilers we seem to be getting at the mo

Kate might be looking for a Sugar Mama.
