Coronation Street’s Kylie Turner is to shock viewers with a wedding this year.

Paula Lane, who has been nominated for a National Television Award, said the groom is someone known to Street fans.

Teasing viewers about what’s in store for her character, she said: “We have a wedding. I can’t reveal who it’s with, but it’s involving Kylie. Watch this space. It’s going to be fantastic.”

She went on: “I didn’t see that coming so I think it’s going to shock a few people.”

She expects to start filming the plotline in February, and it will be screened in April.

Confirming that the wedding is with someone who lives on the Street, she added. “Kylie’s got a lot of tricks up her sleeve. It’s very clever how it’s all going to unfold.”

Paula, who joined Coronation Street last year as Becky McDonald’s tearaway half-sister, is thrilled to be nominated in the newcomer category at the National Television Awards.

She said: “I’m so flattered. In six months my life has completely changed. It’s not hit me yet that I’m involved in the longest-running drama series in the world and now I’m nominated for an award. I’m quite speechless about it really.”
