Julie Hesmondhalgh on Hayley's 'bucket list'

Julie Hesmondhalgh on Hayley's 'bucket list' As we've already revealed here on the Coronation Street Blog with a preview video, Hayley's diary will go online next week, at 9pm on Monday 30 September.

And today, the Mirror have been given a sneak preview of Hayley's diary entries with some pictures from her "bucket list" too - it's worth a look and it's here.

Julie Hesmondhalgh, who plays Hayley, talks about the online diary and the bucket list, saying:

"Well, it’s quiet a humble bucket list. It is a recession after all! The main thing she wanted to do – several of us came up with it really – was dance in the ballroom in Blackpool because she has a history of ballroom dancing and that’s the ultimate place for it.

"That’s where my mum and dad went on honey­moon and watched Betty Driver singing with the big band when they where young. They got banned for jiving once, so it’s a place that’s really special to me as well.

"That was the main one but the boating lake scenes down by the Red Rec, where Roy and Hayley had their first kiss, were special too. We really lucked out on the weather, it was absolutely beautiful.

"Other funny ones were eating a chilli, which she’d never done before, using chopsticks and even doing a Rubik’s cube.

"I’ve loved it all and I couldn’t have been given a better, more beautiful story to leave on. It’s been a long goodbye, and I think it’s been really sensitively written.

"I didn’t want it to be mawkish and it isn’t. It’s been done in a fashion completely true to Roy and Hayley’s unique relationship."
