Katherine Kelly is so used to seeing her 'Coronation Street' character Becky McDonald's pursuit of happiness end in disaster, she doesn't think her alter-ego's adoption bid will work out
Katherine Kelly doesn't think Becky and Steve McDonald's adoption bid will "work out".
The actress - who plays the feisty barmaid in 'Coronation Street' - has gotten so used to seeing things turn out badly for her character, she doesn't expect her latest chance of happiness to be a success.
She said: "With regards to the adoption, I don't know for definite but I've got a feeling that that's not going to work out, because things just don't work out for Becky. I would be surprised if that is all plain-sailing. I think Becky just wants to be happy."
Katherine believes Becky - who was recently told she couldn't have children naturally - is in desperate need of therapy to come to terms with her troubled background, as she doesn't think even having a child will make her happy.
She added: "She's not an ambitious person but her dream is just to be happy, and she's married Steve and she's happy but there's still that hole and I think this baby is her trying to fill this hole.
"Actually I think if she did get a baby she still wouldn't have the hole filled because it's about being happy with yourself. And I think deep-down she's not really. She's a very disturbed person.
"She just needs a bit of therapy really, I think, to truly be happy. She's had some bad things happen to her and she just keeps it really, really far down. We don't know anything hardly."
