Coronation Street's Kate Ford Admits She Was Unhappy With Tracy Barlow Storylines Last Year

'She was hard to play last year...'

‘Coronation Street’ star Kate Ford has admitted her dissatisfaction at her character’s storylines last year.

Kate plays resident Weatherfield troublemaker Tracy Barlow, who has been involved in her fair share of rows in the past 12 months, which have dominated much of her character’s screentime.

However, the soap actress has admitted she began to grew tired of Tracy’s constant rows, but insists she’s now much happier with the direction her character is taking.

The spotlight is currently back on the entire Barlow family, and at the end of last year, when Ken Barlow was taken to hospital after suffering a stroke.

In the wake of Ken’s health worries, several past Barlow family members have returned to be at his side, including his sons, Peter and Daniel, the latter of whom looks set for a drama of his own in the coming months.

Actor Sam Robertson also recently returned to the cobbles, as Ken’s grandson, Adam Barlow, though he stipulated he’d only be willing to come back to ‘Corrie’ if his character were made more three-dimensional.
