Sophie Webster's forthcoming Coronation Street lesbian storyline will bring her closer to screen sister Rosie, it has been revealed.

In a future plot, Sophie - played by 17-year-old Brooke Vincent - will fall in love with best friend Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson). Details of the story first emerged last April.

Vincent's co-star Helen Flanagan, who plays Rosie, has now said that viewers can expect the plotline to spark changes in the relationship between the warring Webster sisters.

Flanagan told The Sun: "You'll be surprised at how [Rosie] reacts. She will stand by Sophie. When you love your sister, you support her."

On the decision to hand Vincent the challenging storyline, she added: "They've given it to her because she's amazing. She's a scene stealer."

Meanwhile, Vincent admitted that she is glad to have been paired with Parkinson for the plot as they both feel comfortable around each other.

She explained: "Sacha and I were friends long before Corrie and I'm so glad it's her. We've been to drama school together and known each other since we were six or seven. She is one of my best friends, which means we've got each other and we're not doing it alone.

"The story's quite cleverly done. It's going to be implicit, not explicit, and we want that to come across. It's emotional and more about the feelings."
