The new firecracker is called Cheryl and she’ll be played by ex-Grange Hill star Holly Quin-Ankrah.

Cheryl may not be looking for love when she walks into the Rovers but that’s what she finds when she goes to meet her old pal Leanne Battersby for a drink.

She soon draws the attention of every bloke in the pub, including hapless Lloyd (Craig Charles) who can’t believe his luck when she flirts with him over everyone else.

But will her colourful life as a lapdancer stand in the way of true love?

Series editor Louise Sutton commented on the romance, “He soon learns she’s a lap-dancer but, far from being put off, he falls head-over-heels in love with her as he becomes her regular taxi driver. However, she tries to keep him at arm’s length and when we learn more about her troubled personal life, we realise Lloyd’s putting his heart and his safety on the line, for the woman he loves.?

Holly will start her stint as Cheryl in April this year, she said of the experience, “I’m really happy to be joining Coronation Street. It feels great and it’s been really exciting seeing the set and meeting the cast. It’s pretty scary too when you’re sat in the Rovers filming a scene with Ken and Deirdre sat next to you!?
