Coronation Street's Sophie Webster could be set to turn straight after becoming increasingly confused about her sexuality in the wake of girlfriend Sian Powers' departure from Weatherfield
Coronation Street's Sophie Webster could be set to turn straight.
The teen lesbian - played by Brooke Vincent - will become increasingly confused about her sexuality after her girlfriend Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson) ditched her on their wedding day when she found out about Sophie's affair with Amber Kalirai.
In a dramatic U-turn, it is thought Sophie will start to turn the heads of a number of Weatherfield's hunks.
An insider on the ITV1 soap told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's been the subject of a lot of gossip that the writers will have this dramatic life-changing scenario for Sophie. It would be a cracking storyline that would get everyone talking.
"We hear that Sophie will become increasingly confused as she finds herself in a very lonely situation. And with handsome young guys paying her attention she starts to feel she may be missing out on something."
However, Sophie's changing sexuality spells disaster for actress Nikki Patel - who plays Amber in the ITV1 soap - as she is being written out of 'Corrie' with show bosses feeling her storylines have run their course.
The source added: "Nikki's part in the love triangle was a big hit but bosses felt the character's role had run its course."
