'Coronation Street' actress Tisha Merry hopes her revenge porn storyline will act as a warning to others.

Tisha - who plays bistro manager Steph Britton on the ITV soap - has admitted the plot has made her more aware of the dangers of stripping off for sexy snaps and now wants to warn others of the risks.

She said: "Steph has a different view of social media at the end of it and I hope viewers might think twice about taking pictures like this after watching what she goes through.

"You see the stress, the paranoia, the fear of everybody finding out. It would be enough for anybody to think, 'I am not doing this'.

"The story is very current and it's like there's a moral in it, especially for younger viewers."

Steph's ex-boyfriend Jamie has been threatening to post intimate images of her on the Internet in order to blackmail her brother Luke, and Tisha has vowed to never let the same thing happen to her in real life.

She told The Sun newspaper: "It's the most invasive, embarrassing thing that could happen to a woman. I'm always very private but this storyline has made me aware of the risks involved and the emotions you'd go through if it happened to you."
