Coronation Street's Sophie Webster and Amber Kalirai will come to blows in Weatherfield after Sophie blames her friend for the breakdown of her relationship with fiancee Sian Powers
Coronation Street's Sophie Webster will 'out' her pal Amber Kalirai.
The pair come to blows after Sophie (Brooke Vincent) blames her friend for making her confused about her feelings for Sian Powers - resulting in her ditching her girlfriend at the altar - after they shared a kiss, and she vents her frustration in a public spat on the cobbles.
Sophie's bombshell causes chaos for Amber (Nikki Patel), who insists she is straight, because her father Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) is unimpressed by the claims.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "She can't believe Sophie has dropped her in it.
"Amber is straight - she's not confused like Sophie's claiming. It created a massive headache for her because her dad is far from happy."
Prior to their lavish wedding, Sophie asks Sian - played by Sacha Parkinson - to elope to Gretna Green as a reaction to her devastation when Amber tells her their recent kiss meant nothing.
Brooke said recently: "Sophie feels that she needs to prove to everyone that she's serious about Sian. And once Amber knocks her back, she also has to prove it to herself.
"She must convince herself that the thing with Amber was nothing but that's really difficult for her because she knows that she did fancy Amber. She goes home after Amber tells her that the kiss meant nothing and tells Sian that she doesn't want to wait until they're 18 to get married.
"Sian is pretty shocked and wants to know the reason why she's changed her mind but Sophie is determined and she makes a very good case and Sian's happy with her reasons."
