“I got 4 episodes which then turned into 7 and last week I got another script so I’m doing 8 in total – so far,” she writes. “So, on January 5th I make my debut in ‘Corrie’ as Agnes, Beth’s grandma.

“All of you keep your fingers crossed that I get written in regularly. No, I’m not telling you the plot – I’d get hung drawn and quartered!” [sic]

Digital Spy reports that Juliette’s arrival in Weatherfield may tie in with Beth’s upcoming wedding to Kirk Sutherland.

‘Corrie’ bosses have already confirmed that Beth’s family will be arriving on’t cobbles for the big day.
