Glad To Be Frankie

Corrie newcomer Debra Stephenson loves playing Essex girl Frankie Baldwin.

Talented Debra - who shot to fame playing Shell Dockley in Bad Girls - is relishing the chance to work with some Weatherfield legends.

Ever since Frankie arrived in the Street she has struck up friendships with some more unlikely soulmates - including gossipy pensioner Vera Duckworth. But Debra wouldn't have it any other way.

She laughs, "Whoever would've known that I would be Vera's new best mate.

"Frankie hates Weatherfield. The only person she genuinely likes is Vera Duckworth, and that's only because she's someone to laugh along with...or at!

"Liz Dawn is great fun to work with and so funny. Jack and Vera are my all time favourite Corrie people, so it’s such a treat."

And Debra has already become firm friends with her leading man Bradley Walsh, who plays love rat Danny Baldwin.

Debra adds, "Working with Bradley Walsh is also a thrill. I go home exhausted from laughing."
