'Coronation Street' star Sacha Parkinson - who plays lesbian schoolgirl Sian Powers in the soap - has revealed some of the show's fans believe she is dating her co-star Brooke Vincent in real life
'Coronation Street' star Sacha Parkinson has revealed some fans are convinced she is dating her on-screen lover in real life.
The blonde actress is currently embroiled in a lesbian storyline, with her character Sian Powers getting romantically involved with Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent).
The two actresses recently had the soap's first ever lesbian kiss and 18-year-old Sacha has been approached by some members of the public who have quizzed her on how far her feelings for Brooke go.
Speaking on ITV1 show 'This Morning', Sacha said: "I have had a few people who've spoken to me in the street and they've said, 'So, did you really have to kiss Sophie?' I go, 'Yeah,' and they go, 'So are you going out in real life?' I'm like, 'No, it's acting.' But most people seem to get it."
Sacha insists she is comfortable with the controversial plotline but doesn't know what the future holds for Sian and Sophie.
She added: "I haven't been in work since we shot the last kiss and just a little bit after, so I actually don't know what's going to happen. I'm not back in work until May 12 and I've not had any scripts. As its Corrie I'm sure it won't go smoothly!"
