Coronation Street reveals who'll be playing Sophie Webster's new girlfriend

Coronation Street has revealed who will be playing Sophie Webster’s new love interest in an upcoming storyline – and she’s a bit of a cougar.

Former Doctors star Stirling Gallacher is heading to Weatherfield to play a lawyer who falls for Sophie (Brooke Vincent) while giving mum Sally (Sally Dynevor) legal advice.

After an unlucky time in love, Sophie’s fortunes are set to change as the pair embark on a passionate fling – much to the disapproval of Sally (according to The Sun).

Eagle-eyed soap fans will recognise Stirling from BBC soap Doctors, where she played Dr Georgina Woodson for six years and picked up a British Soap Award along the way.

The actress also recently cropped up in EastEnders as the Mayor of Walford.

There’s no word yet on when Stirling will make her first appearance on the cobbles as part of the Webster family’s latest storyline, but it can’t come soon enough.

After all, Sophie hasn’t exactly had the best year on the romance front, has she?

Coronation Street airs on ITV. You can check out the schedule changes as a result of the FIFA World Cup here.
