Corrie's Sally Dynevor hints at 'dark and serious' plot line for next year

Corrie's Sally Dynevor has hinted at a "dark and serious" storyline ahead for next year.

Weatherfield has had its fair share of dramatic and heartbreaking moments over the last few months, with Gary Windass' new reign of terror on the cobbles and Sinead Tinker's devastating cancer diagnosis.

However, the actress - who plays Sally Metcalfe - told Metro that there is even *more* drama on the way.

Speaking at the Insider Soap Awards earlier this week, she said:

"There’s a lovely story, a comedy storyline coming up which is really good and then next year it gets a bit darker and more serious.

"There are some good things so I can’t wait for you to watch."

And she also teased some "very, very exciting stories at Christmas" - although she wasn't able to give any more details away.

Sally's character will soon be saying farewell to one of her daughters, as Brooke Vincent - who plays Sophie Webster - has gone on maternity leave.

Brooke's final episode is set to air on Wednesday, October 9, as Paula tells Sophie that she should leave her college course behind - and suggests they go traveling together, instead.

Paula tells her that they should leave tonight, and Sophie agrees. However, it soon emerges that Paula doesn't actually want to go traveling. She pretended that she wanted to go to Cambodia so Sophie would take the leap and go.
