This story came in via Digital Spy who report that the actress revealed on her blog that she will feature in at least eight Corrie episodes in early 2015.
She wrote: "THEN it got better when I was asked to audition for CORONATION STREET!!!!
I got the part –YAY YAY YAY!!!!!!! I got 4 episodes which then turned into 7 and last week I got another script so I’m doing 8 in total – so far. So, on January 5th I make my debut in Corrie as AGNES, Beth’s grandma. All of you keep your fingers crossed that I get written in regularly. No, I’m not telling you the plot – I’d get hung drawn and quartered! What surprised me was how friendly they all are and how welcome I was made to feel. If you watch it never mind the characters they play just know they’re a great bunch of really lovely people who work terribly hard all the time".
