Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) has been extremely busy ever since she joined Coronation Street.
The young attorney quickly settled in with Adam Barlow at his legal firm, and she has shown to be a valuable asset in a neighborhood that has more crime than is fair — after all, there is still an active serial murderer on the loose.
Dee-Dee is a spunky, entertaining, and highly sympathetic character because to her down-to-earth demeanor and occasionally careless behavior.
Iain MacLeod, the show’s creator, gave a description of the character when her appearance was initially revealed.
When she turns to leave the courtroom, you’ll notice that she’s done the entire thing with her skirt tucked into her underwear, he said. “She’s the type of person who will give a kind of point-on-point takedown of a team of hotshot attorneys to defend her client,” he added.
Except for the fact that she has an extraordinarily bright mind, she has basically amplified chaos in every way. However, she’s a ton of fun.
It’s hardly surprising that viewers have taken a liking to her because she has already established herself as a classic Corrie character. She spoke on the fans’ response to her character after receiving the Best Newcomer Award at the 2023 British Soap Awards.
She remarked, “The fans have been fantastic; it’s been very cheerful and pleasant.” “I think some people were a little hesitant at first, but the more Dee-Dee has solidified, the more they’ve taken to her. I’m extremely glad for the positivity around the character,” the speaker said.
But Dee-Dee hasn’t had anything going on in the way of romance lately. Her infatuation with Damon Hay (Ciaran Griffiths) was the closest thing we’ve seen her get to a romance. As soon as Dee-Dee learned he had been trafficking cocaine through the restaurant, this went completely nowhere.
Dee-Dee is a reasonable lady with too much self-respect, so she was most definitely not going to go there. Damon didn’t give up quickly, though.
However, in later episodes, she encounters someone who may, just may, have a chance of attracting her attention.
An anxious Roy (David Neilson) quickly gets in touch with Dee-Dee and asks her for assistance when Lauren Bolton (Cait Fitton) is detained for breaking and entering at the hair salon.
Shortly after she enters the police station, Joel, the on-duty attorney, presents himself. And Joel has Dee-Dee pleasantly surprised. For starters, they both work in the same fields, and he is also quite attractive.
Could Dee-Dee’s extraordinary journey begin with this?
