Last night was the night when Lloyd's daughter turned up in Coronation Street. Jenna is played by actress Krissi Bohn - and she's on twitter @krissibohner
Craig Charles, who plays Lloyd Mullaney on Corrie says this about Lloyd meeting his daughter for the first time. After Mandy lies and says she has no children, Lloyd's a bit surprised to turn up at Mandy's house only to find Jenna there calling Mandy "mum".
Craig says: "Yes. Lloyd thinks it's weird when this girl, Jenna, who's about 28,
answers the door. The fact that Mandy's lied makes him suspicious and he
starts asking Jenna a load of questions – like when was she born? He
does a quick bit of mental arithmetic and he soon puts two and two
together and convinces himself she could be his daughter.
"There's a big confrontation and it all comes out that Jenna is indeed
Lloyd's daughter. It's a really bittersweet moment for Lloyd. He's
excited, but devastated that he's been cheated out of being a father for
so long. Mandy says she loved Lloyd, but Johnny, who was Lloyd's best
mate at the time, was her rock. But it's a massive shock for Jenna. She's really
angry that her mum's lied to her for so long and she leaves in disgust."
"He wants to get to know Jenna - she's his flesh and blood. But he makes
mistakes by steamrolling in. I'd tell him to take it easy, don't be too
pushy, don't try to replace Johnny and just always be there for her.
But I don't think Lloyd would listen to that advice..."
