Sarah will make her guest appearance in the episodes, but the exact details of her storylines are being kept under wraps. She will apparently play a feisty character who is going to make life difficult for troublemaker Tracy Barlow.
Sarah said: “I am extremely excited to be joining Coronation Street. As a fan of the show it is a huge honour for me to join the cast. I can’t wait to get started!!”
Sarah is no stranger to the world of acting and has starred in Bad Day, the BBC television film Freefall, Run for your Wife and St Trinians 2: The legend of Fritton’s Gold. She will start filming in May.
Coronation Street producer Stuart Blackburn said: “Sarah is proving to be a gifted and exciting actor and I’m absolutely delighted to have her on board, the viewers are in for a treat as her character will be right at the heart of a massive new story for the Barlows.”
