Corrie’s Georgia: I want Katy and Chesney to last

Georgia May Foote would like to see her Coronation Street alter-ego Katy Armstrong go the distance with screen boyfriend Chesney Brown.

Weatherfield’s teenage couple, who have been dating since July after meeting at a birthday party, are each other’s first serious partners, having decided to lose their virginity to one another – much to the disapproval of Katy’s dad Owen, (Ian Puleston-Davies).

“I’d like to see them make a go of it, they’re a sweet couple – as long as Chesney does as he’s told!” she told Inside Soap.

Georgia, who previously appeared in Grange Hill, Heartbeat and Emmerdale, added: “I really enjoy working with Sam Aston (Chesney) too – we went to drama school at the same time. We have a laugh, and the writers reflect that on screen.”

The 20-year-old would like to see more Armstrong family members turn up on the ITV soap, as well as former Corrie star Suranne Jones.

“All of the Armstrongs have a feisty streak, which I love. It would be great if Katy’s mum turned up and caused some trouble for Owen,” she said.

“Suranne Jones is an amazing actress, and I’d have liked for her to be our mum if she hadn’t already played Karen McDonald in Corrie.”
