Katie McGlynn has confessed she "can't be bothered with boys" because she's scared of going on dates and finds them too "formal"
Katie McGlynn "can't be bothered with boys".
The 'Coronation Street' actress claims she's nothing like her on-screen character Sinead Tinker, who's dating Chesney Brown (Sam Aston), as she likes to go out with her female friends and isn't interested in having a boyfriend.
She shared: "I can't be bothered with boys. It is too much effort, it just gets weird. The thought of a date gets me scared.
"It is like an audition. Unless you already know the person, I find it really formal. It is so much pressure, I hate it.
"I like to go out and have a laugh with my friends like you do at 21, not stop in with Chesney every night like Sinead does. I would be bored."
The 21-year-old star - who previously played Jodie 'Scout' Allen in 'Waterloo Road' - admits her dress sense is also a far cry from that of her character on the ITV soap.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Sinead has a very odd style. I love dressing her because it means I am comfy as well. But I love getting glammed up. I am more glamorous, and I get my legs out and stuff. I would say I was more sexy and younger than Sinead, I act more my age."
Katie also revealed her family are over the moon she's landed a role on such a popular show.
She added: "I've been on Corrie about a year and a half and I still feel weird. It is mint. I feel priveleged to be here.
"I used to watch it with my grandad and grandma. They used to joke, 'When are you going to be in this?' And now I am. They are all dead proud."
