Michelle Collins is hopeful her 'Coronation Street' alter-ego, Stella Price, will have an affair with a toyboy
Michelle Collins wants her 'Coronation Street' alter-ego to get a toyboy.
The actress plays Rovers Return landlady Stella Price in the ITV1 soap and although her character is currently in a relationship with Karl Munro (John Michie), Michelle thinks she would love a fling with a younger man.
She said: "She's a bit flirty with the younger guys so in her dreams maybe she'd fall for a toyboy like Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) or Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain). Someone who is young and fun!"
Before joining the Manchester-based soap, Michelle was best known for her role as Cindy Beale in 'EastEnders' - which is set in London's East End - but insists she didn't feel the pressure about making the transition to a rival show.
She told OK! magazine: "I've been a working actress for 15 years since leaving 'EastEnders' and have played lots of different characters so it didn't worry me so much, although it probably worried the bosses that people would still think of me as Cindy."
