'Coronation Street' star Sally Ann Matthews (Jenny Bradley) says viewers will remember the forthcoming epic double wedding scene for years to come
Coronation Street's Sally Ann Matthews has promised that Eva Price and Jenny Bradley's epic forthcoming double wedding will go down in soap history.
The 46-year-old actress says the week, which will see the busty blonde barmaid (Catherine Tyldesley) get revenge on her cheating fiance Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward) and her best friend Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie), whilst the strawberry blonde knicker stitcher walks down the aisle with Aidan's father Johnny (Richard Hawley), has one explosive scene that viewers will never forget.
Appearing on 'This Morning' on Monday (18.09.17), Sally teased: "She's [Jenny] very much a part of Eva's revenge plan, when you see what she's got planned.
"It's really not going to go good, but then again it's 'Corrie' so nothing was ever going to go smoothly. It's going to be an epic week. It [the wedding] was such fun to do.
"We knew about this story a long time ago, and we kept discovering snippets and then trying to piece it together. The wedding spans a number of days, and there's this one scene. It's epic. When 'Corrie' is 150 years old I think this scene will be shown in a montage of its greatest moments."
The flame-haired beauty says after the cast watched back the scene, they roared with applause.
She said: "When I came out to watch it, everyone screamed and applauded. It was fantastic."
On top of the joint wedding, Jenny's foster mother Rita Sullivan - portrayed by 'Corrie' legend Barbara Knox - is battling a brain tumour and is set for a dramatic storyline.
Although Sally isn't giving anything away, she said Rita - who has been on the cobbles since 1964 - has done an amazing job.
She said: "Barbara is 84 years old. She's so deserving of a big storyline and she's working so hard she's so on top of it.
"She does it brilliantly that's all I'm saying.
"I'm not telling you anything, I'm just telling you to watch."
'Coronation Street' kicks off its epic week on ITV1 on Monday (18.09.170 7.30pm.
