‘Coronation Street': Sarah Harding's Questionable Acting Skills Defended By Her Co-Star Tristan Gemmill

Viewers may not have liked Sarah Harding’s recent star turn on ‘Coronation Street’, but there’s at least one person out there who was impressed, her co-star Tristan Gemmill.


The former Girls Aloud singer was slammed by soap fans when she appeared as Joanie Preston in the ITV show , but Tristan - who played her on-screen husband Robert - reckons Sarah did just fine. Hmm.

The star later addressed her critics during an appearance on ‘This Morning’.

“I try not to pay any attention to that [criticism],” she said. “If you're going in as a known face, you're always going to get flak. If anything, I turn all that into a positive energy. It just makes me more determined.

“It made me happy anyway, never mind what anyone else thought! Everyone's going to have an opinion at the end of the day.

“You can't please everyone but I had a laugh doing it. Everyone was so lovely to me and I enjoyed my time there and now I'm moving on.”
