Sue Nicholls loved working on her "Coronation Street" clairvoyant storyline because she has received messages from beyond the grave in real life.

The 74-year-old actress believes in psychics herself so she was pleased when show bosses revealed Sophie Thompson was joining the soap as medium Rosemary who passes on messages from her character Audrey Roberts" dead husband Alf Roberts.

She said: "People will think I'm mad, but yes, I do have a belief [in psychics].

"I don't go every day and it doesn't take over my life, but I've had my palm read and I go to see these people, so this is a lovely storyline for me."

Despite admitting some people will be sceptical about the plot - which will see Audrey's daughter Gail Platt (Helen Worth) receive messages from her dead husbands - it "made sense" to her.

She added: "I've been for palm readings, but mainly for Tarot readings and what's been interesting with this storyline is the way the writers have worked it.

"What makes Audrey think this woman is real is that she tells her something that Audrey thought she was the only one who could possibly know about. That made sense to me."

Sue finds it "fascinating" when psychics tell her things only she could've know but isn't drawn in by those who predict she is going to tie the knot to a "hugely rich" man.

She added to The Sun Online: "I only go to people that have been recommended to me,

"I don't want to be told that I'm going to marry a hugely rich, handsome man, or that I'm going to be successful or in work - I know I'm in work, so that's not very interesting.

"All I want is things they couldn't possibly know. Things from my past that perhaps only I knew. That's when it's fascinating. For me, that's when you feel that maybe they have a certain gift."

Sophie will make her first appearance as Rosemary on Monday night's (12.03.18) "Corrie" when she turns up as a customer in the salon and reveals her talents.
