Talking about the many dramas Faye is facing, Ellie said she loves her role in the soap.
“I’m loving it, it’s like having three storylines rolled into one!” She said.
“The biggest storyline I’d had before this was the teen pregnancy but I was very young when I did that – 12 or 13, so it’s great playing the same character as she matures.
“I’m growing up alongside Faye, It’s also been really nice having all the family scenes, working so closely with Mikey again.”
Elsewhere in the soap, Gary calls at the factory and tells Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) how Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) is really struggling and it would be good if she could return to work.
Sarah and Gary FaceTime Izzy and at Kirk’s suggestion, and ask her if she’d like to sew knickers from home.
Coronation Street continues on Monday at 7.30pm on ITV.
