Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly says her character Becky McDonald is getting a step-sister in the ITV1 soap, who may be played by her real-life sister Grace!

Katherine told whatsontv.co.uk at the British Soap Awards on Saturday night: “It’s very exciting, she’s going to get a sister, which is an exclusive. Very, very soon a half-sister is going to come into her life.

“They are interested in my sister (Grace). She is the prefect age and she’s a cracking actress and she is my sister, so she looks just like me. But she’s in LA at drama school, so… I don’t know if it will work.”
