Catherine Tyldesley on her little son's funny remark

Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley has revealed that her two-year-old son Alfie is still to master the art of compliments.

The 34-year-old actress, who plays Eva in the hit soap, has revealed that her son said something very funny while she was getting ready.

Catherine, who’s married to personal trainer Tom Pitfield, said: “I was doing my make-up and he said, “What are you doing, Mummy?” so I replied, “I’m making myself look pretty.” He said, “Mummy, it’s not working!”

Last year it was revealed that Catherine will be leaving Corrie this summer. She said at the time: “Coronation Street has been a dream job for me which is why this was such a difficult decision to leave.

“Eva has been such fun to play over the last seven years, and who knows, one day she might storm the cobbles of Weatherfield again.”

Meanwhile in Corrie Eva will be seen struggling to hide her pregnancy next week. She’s caught out when both Adam and Leanne want to spoil her for her birthday.

Leanne presents her with a new dress whilst Adam wants to take her to the new sushi restaurant in town. Worried she tells Toyah she can’t eat sushi and Toyah confides there is worse to come, Leanne wants to throw her a boozy party…

Coronation Street continues on Friday at 7.30pm.
