Corrie's Izzy's 'whole world' to crumble
Coronation Street's Izzy Armstrong is set to see her "whole world" crumble before her eyes following her boyfriend Gary Windass' betrayal with surrogate mother Tina McIntyre
Coronation Street's Izzy Armstrong is set to see her "whole world" crumble before her eyes.
The factory worker - who is portrayed by Cherylee Houston - was left heartbroken last week after her boyfriend Gary Windass (Mikey North) made a move on the couple's surrogate mother Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan).
Izzy - who can't have children of her own - will be left devastated when Tina becomes attached to the tot and decides to keep him, and Cherylee admits Gary's betrayal has put the brunette barmaid in a "difficult position" when it comes to deciding whether or not to hand over the little one to the couple.
She said: "When your expectations have been built up so much to the joy of having a baby and then suddenly her whole world is falling apart because the man she loves, the man she was going to do this with has betrayed her.
"When she [Tina] first went into this, Izzy and Gary were a stable couple and she was handing the baby over to a stable couple but Gary's mistake has put Tina in a very difficult position really because she's given birth to a baby who now hasn't got a stable family to go into."
Despite Izzy's forthcoming turmoil, Cherylee finds it "really exciting" playing such heart-wrenching storylines and admits she had fun experimenting with the current surrogacy story.
Speaking on ITV's This Morning, she added: "It's been really exciting [to have big stories]."
