Former Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay hailed Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park as a ‘genius’ and said she’d work with him again ‘in a heartbeat’.

Sally voiced the ill-fated character Piella in A Matter of Loaf and Death last Christmas and said it was an ‘amazing, but intense’ experience.

“It came out of the blue, because Nick heard me on the radio, he heard my voice and he’d been looking for six months for Piella… He only watches films, so he said, ‘Has that girl done any acting?’

“My agent went, ‘Yeah, a bit…'”
