Corrie goes to Tullamore
CALLING all soap lovers. Corrie stars Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson will be partying in Tullamore this weekend.
The actresses, who play gay couple Sophie Webster and Sian Powers in the soap, will be letting loose at Palace Nightclub, Bridgehouse Hotel, on Saturday night.
The girls, who are best friends off-screen, are taking a much-needed break from the soap, which saw Sacha's character Sian leave the cobbles after their disastrous wedding day. Brooke and Sacha are set to enjoy a day of relaxation at The Sanctuary Spa Saturday afternoon before heading to the club.
