Claire King has admitted the young male cast of 'Coronation Street' try to throw her compliments and chat her up on set

Claire King claims the "young boys" on 'Coronation Street' chat her up.

The 53-year-old actress - who portrays Erica Holyroyd on the show - no longer feels a pressure to be sexy but thinks it is "lovely" to be appreciated for her looks.

She said: "I think TV and the media are very much geared to youth and looks these days, so I don't think there is that pressure on me. But it is still lovely to feel that you look good and that you're appreciated.

"A couple of the young boys on the show often chat me up and it's very nice, thank you very much. Still got it baby!"

Though the former 'Emmerdale' star wishes she was a little big thinner, she insists she is "more than happy" with herself.

She told Closer magazine: "I'm more than happy being in my body. I could do with a little bit of weight off, of course, but when it gets to middle aged spread there's not a lot you can do about it - it spreads.

"In the past I'd have stressed about putting on a couple of pounds, but I'm not bothered about that now."
