So who is this catching the eye of Chesney (Sam Aston) and making Katy (Georgia May Foote) feel decidedly put out? Yes, it’s actress Katie McGlynn, best known as Scout Allen in Waterloo Road, but soon to be seen in Corrie as Beth Tinker’s niece Sinead.
In an upcoming episode, viewers will see Beth and Kirk invite Chesney out for a drink with newcomer Sinead. Ches is initially reluctant but Beth has high hopes that he and Sinead will become an item. But just as the pair are getting on well at the Bistro, along comes Ches’s ex Katy.
With the atmosphere suddenly turning awkward as Chesney poses for a photo with Sinead, Katy heads home hurt and upset. Pretty soon, Ryan (Sol Heras) is suggesting that he takes Katy for a drink – so will Katy agree or is it Chesney with whom she really wants a date?
The scenes are set to air on Friday 19 April on ITV.
