Former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding is set to cause trouble for Tracy Barlow when she joins the cast of Coronation Street this summer.


Harding, 33, will feature on the ITV soap over four episodes and while details of the character she’ll be playing are being kept under wraps, it has been revealed that she’ll be tangling with Tracy (Kate Ford) during her time in Weatherfield.
