Jenny Connor’s (Sally Ann Matthews) life is set to be turned upside down in Coronation Street when stepdaughter Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan) arrives on the cobbles.
The current landlady of the Rovers was incredibly close to Daisy, who is the daughter of her ex husband, but when her son died and her marriage broke down she left that life behind.
However, Jenny has always kept in touch with Daisy, and therefore she’s delighted when she arrives on the eponymous street.
That is, until she makes herself at home in the Rovers, as it becomes clear that there is a lot more to this character than we know.
Daisy is full of fun and a serious minx, and thus the residents of Weatherfield had better watch out!
Producer Iain MacLeod said: ‘Daisy might seem like sweetness and light at first, but can be a maelstrom of minxy mischief when the mood takes her.
‘She revels in devilment and can be very self-serving, but she’s fiercely loyal to those she cares about – although her loyalties can change in a heartbeat.
‘Above all, she will bring chaos and conflict into Jenny’s life, as her stepmum tries to make up for walking out on her some years ago.’
Actress Charlotte — whose previous credits include Netflix drama Free Rein — added: ‘I am thrilled to be joining such a well-beloved and iconic show like Corrie during its 60th anniversary and especially whilst living in such uncertain times
‘Daisy has been a delight to play so far with her lack of filter and flirty nature but there’s certainly more to her than meets the eye. I’m excited to flesh her out and see what lies ahead for hers and Jenny’s relationship.’
Coronation Street continues Friday November 13 at 7:30pm on ITV.
