While most actors have to audition for the role, Sarah’s claiming she didn’t need to - as the ‘Corrie’ team just went on YouTube instead.
Speaking to The Sun, Sarah explains: “I can’t believe it. I found out a few weeks ago but it was in the pipeline for a while.
“The producers know that I love the show. I do charity work with them and, at an event, they could tell I was a fan as I was going mental at the cast.
“I didn’t have to do an audition – they YouTubed me and saw what I did, so I was lucky. And it might just turn out to be a longer stint. Watch this space.”
The former 'Girls Aloud' star is set to star in just a handful of 'Corrie' episodes, but if she's a hit with fans her stay in Weatherfield could be extended.
It's believed that she'll arrive on the Street with Robert Preston, Tracy Barlow's ex-husband.
While the whole process has been wonderfully easy for Sarah, other budding stars don’t have this luxury… like Shayne Ward.
He’s also a life-long ‘Corrie’ fan, but when he fancied treading t’cobbles, he had to audition like errm, the rest of us.
