Coronation Street' s Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson often pretend they're lovers off-screen.
The actresses - who play teen lesbians Sophie Webster and Sian Powers in the ITV1 soap - are very close friends in real life and Brooke admitted she can often get protective if Sacha gets unwanted attention from males.
She said: "Sometimes for a laugh we pretend we are a real couple. We were out in London recently and this boy was desperate to talk to Sacha. He wouldn't leave her alone. I was so fed up, I said, 'Mate, do you want to stop talking to my bird?'
"And then we both marched off hand in hand."
However, the 19-year-old star is upset her time acting alongside "best mate" Sacha is coming to an end, as the latter is exiting the show in early 2012.
She added to Now magazine: "I hate talking about it because it makes me sad. She's my best mate. I can't think about it."
