Following the passing of Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce), Cherylee Houston of Coronation Street has hinted at an intriguing new plotline for her character.
Izzy Armstrong’s actress has been a member of the Corrie cast for well over ten years.
Izzy was the center of a plot in 2021 that examined how handicapped individuals returned to the workforce while continuing to protect themselves from the Coronavirus epidemic.
Izzy, who also has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome like Cherylee, started working from home with assistance from Carla Connor (Alison King) and Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien), but they found it difficult to relate to her plight because none of them was experiencing it firsthand.
At the beginning of this year, the character made a more substantial comeback to the cobbles and began to appear in scenes with Stephen the villain and her Underworld coworkers.
During Super Soap Week, Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) struck the businessman with his automobile, causing his death.
Cherylee has made hints about what would happen to her character in the future as the fallout develops.
She told Manchester Evening News, “I know there’s some great stuff coming ahead, but in a little of time.”
She was occasionally pretty harsh to Stephen, and every time I read the script, I kept thinking, “Oh no, don’t be too mean to him. I’m pleased she didn’t get killed by Stephen. You just never know. It was all good, though.
Cherylee said, “I love my work and I love my colleagues,” in reference to the 13 years she has been a part of the program. I am having a terrific time. It’s such a wonderful family, and I’m always learning new things. It’s pretty fantastic.
I believe that Corrie changed the game when they hired me and kept me on for as long as they did. They undoubtedly set the example in television for others to follow and think, “Oh, we should be doing that too!”
