“If she is talking to someone important, the posh voice is on. When she is having a row with Abi [Franklin], all the northern twang comes out. I describe her as the Joan Collins of Weatherfield.”

She added: “I love the fact that she is a bitch with a heart. I love that she doesn’t let anyone get in her way. She thinks in her world what she says is right.

“When she was in the freezer with Kevin, you see a real vulnerable side of her but she doesn’t let that out that often.
