Corrie star Julia Goulding, who plays Shona Ramsey, has said she once had a massive crush on Steve McDonald!
"When I was young and the McDonalds joined, I had a massive crush on Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald," she told Star magazine. "When I told him, he laughed his head off!"
And speaking about her role in Corrie as Shona, Julia said: "It's my dream job and I felt so happy to be here,"
But although the role has been challenging, Julia said it's made easier by the fact that she bears similarities to her character.
"We're both strong-willed and I'd definitely be friends with Shona in real life. Although I like to think I make better decisions than she does."
Julia isn't the first Corrie woman to admit to a crush on Steve 'the stud' McDonald. Another one of Simon Gregson's Corrie co-star admitted to a crush on him too. You can find out who that was here.
