'Coronation Street' actress Sally Dynevor admits she was concerned her alter-ego wouldn't be supportive of her daughter Sophie when It was revealed she has been having a lesbian relationship

Sally Dynevor was worried her 'Coronation Street' character wouldn't accept her daughter's sexuality.

The actress - who plays Sally Webster in the ITV1 soap - is pleased with how show writers made her hot-headed alter-ego sympathetic and protective of her on-screen daughter, Sophie (Brooke Vincent), when her secret affair with school pal Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson), is revealed.

Sally explained: "At first she's really shocked and says daft things like 'I'm not having any dungarees in this house!' but then she becomes quite protective of Sophie and Sian and defends them.

"I'm so glad the writers have done it like that, because at first I wasn't sure Sally would accept it.

"The fact she's supportive is really good."

Sally - who has recently returned to work on the show after beating breast cancer - admits she's got a difficult storyline coming up, which involves her alter-ego getting close to Molly.

The shop assistant fell pregnant following an affair with Sally's husband Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell), and it is unknown whether the child is his or Molly's husband Tyrone Dobbs' (Alan Halsall).

Sally added to new! magazine: "Sally ends up delivering Molly's baby. After that I end up babysitting and form quite a strong bond with Molly."
