Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent was told by the boss that they would not kill her character-even though she hadn’t appeared on a soap opera for more than 18 months.
Sophie Webster Actress-Who Gave birth to her second child Last month-now she earns more cash from advertising deals with companies such as Asda than she earns £150,000 a year from soap.
And she is free to insert products because she is not currently signed with Corrie-not subject to the strict ITV rules like her co-star.
She also has her own lifestyle brand, Oh So B, which sells a series of diaries and plans.
The 29-year-old Brooke left the show in August 2019, leaving her son Mecks with Sheffield United star Keane Bryan.
The last time she appeared on the screen was in October of that year.
After being pregnant with her second child Monroe-born in May-she has not yet returned to Corey’s studio.
She said in this week’s Q&A: “I love Corey, it will always be my home, but it is a demanding job and very strict because you have to work near Manchester.
“I have been doing this since I was 11 years old. This is my top priority, but now that I have boys, they are my top priority.
“Maybe when they reach a certain age-if they can make me come back-I will say,’Please give me my job back!'”
The audience finally saw Sophie leave the cobblestone to travel to Cambodia.
