During her time away from t’cobbles, Brooke will be trying something a little different, treading the boards for the first time for a Manchester theatre production.
‘Corrie’ fans concerned about her future on the soap needn’t worry though, as it’s believed that bosses will shift their filming schedule, so that Brooke’s character doesn’t leave our screen.
A source explains to The Mirror: “Brooke was approached to do live theatre and she asked ‘Corrie’ bosses if she could take some time off next year.
“She is just waiting for confirmed dates but the ‘Corrie’ bosses have been very accommodating.
“There is never an issue so long as they are given enough notice so they don’t have to re-write scripts.
“She is contracted until next summer but has absolutely no intention of leaving the soap.” Phew!
Details of Brooke’s theatre role are yet to be revealed, but the Mirror reports that she will be playing a young mum.
There’s been plenty of drama in ‘Corrie’ lately, and it looks like romance could be in store for Audrey Roberts and Ken Barlow.
