The popular soap opera Coronation Street’s newest cast member is actress Beth Vyse.
The actress and comedian will join the cast as Bridget Carpenter, the long-lost daughter of Stuart Carpenter (Bill Fellows). Stuart, a formerly homeless guy, played a crucial role in the police’s ability to convict Corey Brent of the murder of Seb Franklin.
