Coronation Street: Sophie Webster To Turn To Drugs To Ease Heartbreak? (SPOILER)
Coronation Street troubled teen Sophie Webster could turn to drugs to ease her heartbreak.
The lesbian teenager - played by 19-year-old Brooke Vincent - is left confused and lonely following the departure of her two loves, Sian Powers and Amber Kalirai.
And the Daily Mirror has reported that Sophie, 17, could be seen dabbling with drugs in a controversial new storyline.
A Corrie insider revealed soap bosses were considering a new plot which would see Sophie introduced to drugs by Ryan Connor, the son of barmaid Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh).
Ryan, played by Ben Thompson, has been at university in Glasgow and is set to return to the cobbles as a "very dark character" having picked up some extremely dangerous habits while he was away.
Ryan - who dated Sophie's former fiancee Sian before he left the Street - could be set to pass on bad habits to Sophie.
Sophie was dumped by Sian (Sacha Parkinson), who fled after discovering Sophie had fallen for her straight friend Amber.
Amber, played by 21-year-old Nikki Patel, is also being written out of the show.
