Raft of publicity as Melissa Johns joins Coronation Street

Winterson’s actress, Melissa Johns, made her Coronation Street debut last week with the actress’ entrance on the show receiving widespread media attention.  

Melissa plays Imogen, a new character we first meet when she catches the eye of Kate Connor (played by Faye Brooks). It’s not the first time that Johns has taken to the cobbles, as you may remember that last year we reported on her attendance at a disability conference in the famous street. The new role promises to be a lively one, with some outlets already citing a possible ‘Love Triangle’ between Imogen, Kate, and other Coronation Street regular, Rana.

In addition to the national press, Johns also spoke to her local radio station, Sunshine Radio, about the move in an interview you can listen to here.

As Kate enjoys her new romance, will it be at the expense of her friendship with Rana?”

“Kate Connor looks set to find herself caught between two warring women in next week’s Coronation Street after she falls for a Weatherfield newcomer.”
Radio Times

“When Imogen drapes herself over a tipsy Kate, it’s the final straw for Rana as she angrily accuses Imogen of taking advantage of Kate.”

Congratulations to Melissa who has clearly already made a huge splash on the show!
