Hello and welcome to another edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh. What’s going on in the news? Well…
Coronation Street viewers will be aware that young Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent), who has expressed an interest in Christianity, is falling for her friend Sian Power (Sacha Parkinson). Much has been made of Corrie’s first lesbian teen storyline – although Brookside did it eons ago with Beth Jordache (actress Anna Friel) as the teen that fell for her mate Margaret (Nicola Stephenson).
Anyway The Sun has got the picture of "the moment" as you can see here:
Brooke Vincent has spoken about the storyline. She said: "It’s going to be implicit, not explicit, and we want that to come across. It’s emotional and more about the feelings." She added: "Sacha and I were friends long before Corrie and I’m so glad it’s her. We’ve been to drama school together and known each other since we were six or seven."
Personally, I don’t mind watching any storyline in a soap – as long as it’s relatively convincing and not too obviously a ratings ploy. That’s something I hope the writers here are bearing in mind. Remember Corrie’s awful baby swap drama with Michelle Connor? That was just terribly done; I hope Coronation Street does this one better.
But what do you Corrie fans think? Is this going to be a good storyline? Do you like it? Share your views by leaving a comment.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me again on for the result of the week’s caption competition on Friday 9 April. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me but PLEASE keep it clean or your comment will be deleted.
