Paula Lane has confessed she doesn’t know who she wants the father of Kylie Platt’s baby to be in Coronation Street.

Kylie is pregnant, but she had a row with husband David (Jack P Shepherd) at Christmas and ended up having a drunken one night stand with his half-brother Nick Tilsley (Ben Price), so she doesn’t know who the father is.

Asked who she would like to be the dad, Paula admitted: “That’s tough! I think it’s fifty-fifty.”

She added: “I absolutely love working with Jack and I really don’t want that relationship to end, but at the same time Nick brings out a different side to Kylie. I’ve had people comment and say she’s a girl when she’s with David and a woman when she’s with Nick and that’s a great way of putting it. There are massive benefits to each of them!”

And the actress is really enjoying the audience’s reaction to the story.

She said: “I think the public are loving this storyline. They love the twists and turns and they are enjoying the fact that it involves a lot of strong characters. It’s that new big story for the Platts and I feel really privileged to be a part of it.

“The audience seem to be really excited about where the story is going to end up, especially as it wasn’t the typical cliche of Kylie and Nick having a love affair; it was just two people who had one night together and whose situation has gone from bad to worse!”
