Brooke Vincent thrilled by Helen Flanagan's Corrie return

Brooke Vincent is thrilled her "big sister" Helen Flanagan has returned to 'Coronation Street'.

The pair play siblings Sophie and Rosie Webster in the ITV soap and Brooke is delighted that Helen has decided to return to the cobbles after a four-year absence.

She said: "She's like my big sister. We grew up together and I missed her, so it's great to have her back. The chemistry between us is still there."

Meanwhile, Brooke recently took a three-month break to go on tour with the play 'Be My Baby' but she is excited about being back on the soap.

She said: "I've done the same job since I was 11, so this strange environment feels normal to me. When the opportunity came up to go on tour with the play 'Be My Baby', which is set in the 60s, I thought it would be nice to do that, but also have the security to come back here.

"I really enjoyed doing theatre. You have to really concentrate -unlike in 'Corrie' there's no opportunity for a second take if you mess up. I learned a lot. I've come back with a different mindset and it made me want to better my character here.

"I loved doing something different. This is an amazing job but I might be like a Peter Barlow and just try and dip in and out as and when."

However, she admitted she sometimes gets frustrated with her storylines in 'Coronation Street'.

She said: "I sometimes feel frustrated when they try to put Sophie with every other girl who's lesbian,' she explains. 'There's more to people than their sexuality so I'd prefer to do a storyline about my job or family. Thankfully our producer Kate Oates seems to get that."
