newcomer Faye Brookes, who plays Aidan Connor's sister Kate, was interviewed on ITV's Lorraine this week.
Faye talked about Kate's girlfriend Caz, who'll be coming into the show soon. But because of Caz's job as a soldier, she'll be away a lot, although Faye says there will be a wedding.
Faye says that Kate wants to be a mini-Carla and describes her as a hot-head. She says that walking into the Coronation Street green room on her first day was like an out of body experience. Shayne Ward has looked after her really well since she arrived and Faye says he's been like her big brother off-screen as well as on.
Faye made her name in musical theatre, starred in Shrek and is the girlfriend of singer Gareth Gates.
