Last night (January 23, 2012), Coronation Street viewers bid farewell to Becky, played by Katherine Kelly, for the last time, and in an interview posted on Stv's website today, she reveals the details of her favourite scene in the long-running soap opera.
In last night's episode, Becky ruined Tracy Barlow's wedding, before jetting off to Barbados with Danny - the man of her dreams. Her favourite scene from the six years that she appeared in Coronation Street, though, saw Becky and Jason Grimshaw flirting with each other and sucking on ice lollies. Ryan Thomas (who plays the role of Jason) praised his former co-star, saying "We made it our own. We were like two little kids, and we were swinging our feet off the end of the balcony and eating our sandwiches. I would be lying if I said any of it had anything to do with me. That is the genius of working with Katherine. She brings that to your scenes."
A special one-off show is due to be aired tonight, entitled Farewell Becky. The show will feature interviews with Katherine, as well as some of her co-stars, such as Julia Hesmondhalgh and Kate Ford. Katherine has also been nominated for the Best serial Drama Performance award at the National Televisions Awards, which take place tomorrow night. Coronation Street is in the running for the Best Serial Drama award but faces strong competition from Eastenders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.
