'Corrie' bosses are reportedly set to extended contracts for both Ruxandra Porojnicu (Alina Pop) and Charlotte Jordan (Daisy Midgeley)
'Coronation Street' bosses are reportedly extending the contracts for Ruxandra Porojnicu and Charlotte Jordan.
The two stars – who play Alina Pop and Daisy Midgeley respectively – are said to have become "firm favourites" with viewers, and they'll be staying on the cobbles longer than originally planned.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "They’ve been told to expect contract extensions when the time comes.
“Ruxandra’s character Alina Pop is currently involved in her second big storyline where she is having a fling with Tyrone Dobbs – and she is being lined up for plenty more.
“While Charlotte’s character Daisy Midgeley has been on and off since she joined five months ago her blossoming popularity has led to her being put forward for more time on screen.
"Having fresh, young blood back on the street has been really exciting.”
Ruxandra, 27, and Charlotte, 25, have become hits with fans after the likes of Lucy Fallon, 25, Faye Brookes, 33, Bhavna Limbachia, 36, and Katie McGlynn, 27, all left over the past couple of years.
Charlotte recently revealed she hopes her character Daisy can become as "iconic" as Kate Ford's alter-ego Tracy Barlow.
She said: "I’d love her to be an iconic bad girl, why not?
"I don’t know what the long-term plans are, but she’s somebody who will do whatever needs to be done to protect herself.
"That makes her quite dangerous, so I actually think potentially she could be as bad as Tracy Barlow."
Charlotte was cast as Jenny Connor's (Sally Ann Matthews) stepdaughter last year.
She said at the time: "I am thrilled to be joining such a well-beloved and iconic show like 'Corrie' during its 60th anniversary and especially whilst living in such uncertain times.
"Daisy has been a delight to play so far with her lack of filter and flirty nature but there’s certainly more to her than meets the eye."
