Corrie's Alison King reveals why she regrets not wearing flats on her first day as Carla Connor
The actress, who is saying goodbye to the cobbles after starring in the ITV soap for a decade, wishes she had never put on the “nasally voice” and towering heels – as she had to live with both for her entire time on the show.
On her advice to herself if she were starting again, she said: “Wear flat shoes right from the start. Try and create something for the writers to get excited about. Give your character a few mannerisms that aren’t just on the page.
“Wear flats, seriously. It’s knackered my feet. And don’t do a nasally voice.”
Her final storyline revolves around her wedding to Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) – but all does not go smoothly, as her long-time nemesis Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) is determined to ruin her wedding day by revealing that Carla cheated on her groom with Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill).
