Coronation Street favourite’s dark past revealed as long-lost mother arrives
DRAMA continues to unfold in Weatherfield and one fan favourite will be reunited with a family member.
Coronation Street is set to welcome a new face and a beloved character’s past will finally come to light.
Since her first appearance in the cobbles, Daisy Midgeley has been careful to keep her past shrouded in mystery.
The Rovers barmaid played by Charlotte Jordan has settled into Weatherfield life and is ready to tie the knot with her on-off partner, Daniel Osbourne.
But a blast from the past will soon cast a shadow over her plans for the future.
Following her brief stint in Emmerdale as Defence Barrister Milligan, actress Amy Robbins is joining the Corrie line-up.
The former Hollyoaks and EastEnders star will take on the role of Christina, Daisy’s estranged mother.
“She’s chaotic, selfish, hates Jenny Connor!”, soap boss Iain MacLeod teased during a chat with The Sun.
Christina will not only be a comic relief in the Manchester-based program (she even knows karate!) but will also give an insight on Daisy’s past amid her crazy wedding planning.
“She presents as very together, comfortable in her own skin, a confident, glamorous young woman. We discover her past is slightly sadder than that”, Iain explained.
While her past won’t involve anything “hugely tragic or traumatic”, viewers can expect “loads of pathos” and to feel sorry for the fan favourite.
“It’s going to be an important story and one you don’t generally see on television, and will be a long runner”, the executive producer added.
Iain then recalled how stage legend Amy Robbins was picked for the role.
“The moment I clapped eyes on Amy’s audition tape
it was just her, I’d never known it quite so resounding as that.”
