‘Coronation Street’: New Boss Eyes Up 'Poldark' Star Aiden Turner In A Bid To 'Sex Up' ITV Soap

'There is a lot of talent out there and some of it is very handsome.'

Could Aiden Turner be swapping the Cornish coast for Weatherfield’s cobbles? That’s one of the hopes of the new boss of ‘Coronation Street’.

Kate Oates has revealed she wants more eye candy on the Street and admitted the 'Poldark' star would be her number one choice.

Kate also revealed that she wants to focus on improving the soap’s storylines after it came under fire from viewers for many of its latest plots.

Kate told The Mirror: "Everyone says will I shake it up? For me it's about telling the best stories and using the characters the best I can."

And that could mean bringing back some familiar faces from Corrie’s past - but she’s remaining tight-lipped on who.


Kate joins ‘Corrie’ from ‘Emmerdale’ after previous boss Stuart Blackburn was axed in September.
