Coronation Street: Sophie Webster inspired by Carla Connor

Sophie Webster's new image on 'Coronation Street' was inspired by Carla Connor.

Sophie has recently been given part ownership of her dad Kevin Webster's garage and Brooke Vincent - who has played Sophie for over 10 years - has revealed she's modelled her new businesswoman look on that of Underworld boss Carla (Alison King).

Brooke said: "I wanted Sophie, even though she works in the garage, to look like Carla Connor."

The 23-year-old actress also confessed she's excited at the prospect of getting to dress in a "work outfit".

Speaking on ITV's 'This Morning', Brooke shared: "I don't have a going to work outfit as I roll in and they dress me and they put my makeup on so I can go in anything.

"I was so excited because I could buy a work wardrobe that I've never been able to buy before."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty also admitted she's looking forward to taking a two month break from the ITV soap to star in a play next year.

She added: "I wasn't really that fussed. I go approached to do a play and I said, 'Yes, let's see what work say'.

"I really didn't think they'd let me do it and they did and now everyone is saying they'll have to come and watch. But I'm going to tell them the wrong date."

Brooke Vincent will be taking eight weeks off from the start of September in order to play a pregnant woman in a play at The Lowry theatre in Salford.
