Corrie's Tina O'Brien confirms new love interest for Sarah Platt
Coronation Street's Tina O'Brien has opened up about Sarah Platt's new relationship with Adam Barlow.
Sarah split from Gary Windass last month after she found out he had been lying to her about his loan shark troubles. She became even more furious when she found out who Rick really was - and just how close he had been to her son.
However, while Mikey North (who plays Gary) hinted that his character may try and win Sarah back, it soon looked like Coronation Street are lining up another love interest for Tina O'Brien's character.
The actress was spotted filming romantic scenes with Samuel Robertson - aka: Adam Barlow - in Manchester last month - and now she's spoken about how Adam "brings out a side of her personality that has been buried for a while."
Talking to Metro.co.uk about how she was enjoying playing a "lighter side of Sarah," she explained:
"Sarah is definitely more cheeky and so much more flirty with Adam. It’s like she is young again and she is having that experience of feeling wanted.
"She’s even got a whole new wardrobe which is great. She is still young but she has had so much going on in her life she was feeling very downtrodden, Adam is making her feel desirable again."
However, their new relationship won't be without some difficulties - especially when the tensions between Gary and Adam resurface.
"I love the dynamic between Gary and Adam. There’s great friction and Sarah is in the middle of it all. Although she doesn’t want to be with Gary she still cares about him and doesn’t want to see him hurt.
"Adam is paying her attention and saying nice things to her and she can’t deny that he makes her happy even if that upsets Gary."
