Brooke Vincent, who plays Coronation Street's Sophie Webster, has signed a six-figure contract, keeping her in the soap for another year, says The Daily Star today.
The paper says Corrie producer Phil Collinson promised Brooke some huge storylines over the next few months, as well as giving her a pay rise.
A source close to Brooke, 20, is quoted saying she is “delighted” to have signed the new deal, adding: “Everyone loves Sophie, and Phil did all he could to make her stay. They’ve got some huge storylines planned, including a new love interest, and there’s lots more coming up for the Webster family."
If tabloid rumours are true, Sophie is going to turn into a junkie, courtesy of Ryan Connor.
Speaking of Ryan, we have a dilemma. What shall we call the new Ryan Connor here on the Coronation Street Blog? Suggestions so far from our sofa include ReRyan, NuRyan or FakeRyan2. What do you think?
