I'm A Celeb and West End star Ruthie Henshall set to join Coronation Street

It appears we may be set to welcome a new character to Coronation Street, as I’m a Celeb star Ruthie Henshall has teased a role in the ITV soap.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Ruthie posted a photo of some Coronation Street scripts, hinting that she may be the next big name to join the show.

Either that, or she’s stolen someone else’s!

On the scripts were lines for a character called Estelle who, judging by the highlighting over them, we can assume is who Ruthie will be playing.

Also visible on the page is a line from barmaid Glenda, played by fellow West End icon Jodie Prenger.

Ruthie Henshall is best known for her roles in West End musicals, such as Roxie in Chicago and Nancy in Oliver!.

However, she is no stranger to the screen, having previously appeared in BBC daytime soap Doctors.

She played the role of Miranda Evans, who was intent on pursuing a relationship with Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee), but left after being turned down.

It will be interesting to see what Estelle will bring to the cobbles, and whether or not she will be a regular character.

There is plenty going on on the Street at the moment, with killer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) continuing to cause havoc, with his sights now firmly set on Carla Barlow (Alison King).

Elsewhere, Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan) is facing the torment of stalker Justin (Andrew Still), while Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) and Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) have been trying to deal with Damon (Ciaran Griffiths) and his drug dealing empire.

So just where will Estelle fit into all of that? We’ll just have to wait and see!

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Coronation Street for comment.
