Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson have announced that they will leave Coronation Street if scriptwriters end the relationship between their characters Sophie and Sian.
Brooke told the Daily Mail: “If they split us up, I’d leave. It’s made too much impact for them to break it up.”
Teenagers Sophie and Sian are the first lesbian characters in the soap’s 50-year run. Their relationship began after they met at church and took a chastity vow together.
Brooke and Sacha were interviewed in the February issue of g3 – you can read the interview here!
