Victoria Eckanoye on joining Corrie and singing Whitney Houston


Victoria Ekanoye, who plays Angie in Coronation Street, was interviewed on ITV's Loose Women where she came over as a truly lovely lady.

She was there to talk about her current storyline on Corrie which sees Angie at a loss as to what to do with her feckless husband Jude... who has turned out to be a serial liar.

Victoria says that her mum Candy is a massive fan of Corrie and Candy was in the Loose Women audience watching her daughter on stage. Victoris said that she didn't tell her mum when she went for the audition at ITV because her mum was such a big fan of the show. She called her afterwards to tell her she'd got the job and her mum screamed and cried.

She says she's still in shock at working on Corrie as it is such an institution and all her family watch it. "You grow up watching it and all these characters and then the next minute, you're in there with them. It's very surreal."

As for Jude and Angie's storyline, she says she's sworn to secrecy on whether the couple stay together, but she does reveal that Jude's lying ways are not quite over and done with yet.

She praised Patti Clare, who plays Mary in the show, saying she is witty, clever and sharp and said she feels honoured that Corrie gave her a high-profile post-natal depression storyline so early on after she joined the show too.
