Share article:

Catherine Tyldesley has been auditioning for new roles.

The 31-year-old beauty announced at the end of last year that she is stepping down from portraying feisty barmaid Eva Price - a part she's played since 2011 - this summer, and it has now been revealed that the star is keen to land a part in a drama series and she has been trying out for new parts.

A source told The Sun Online: "Cath has made no secret of the fact she wants to spread her wings a bit more. She loves "Corrie" and playing Eva but it was time to get back out there as a jobbing actress. She's started reading scripts and auditioning for new drama roles and it's a really exciting time for her."

As for her character Eva, she is currently involved in a gripping pregnancy storyline, which will no doubt run up to the summer when Catherine exits Weatherfield.

Announcing her departure from the long-running soap in December, Catherine said: ""Coronation Street" has been a dream job for me which is why this was such a difficult decision to leave. Eva has been such fun to play over the last seven years, and who knows, one day she might storm the cobbles of Weatherfield again. In the meantime I'm excited about the future, new acting projects, and spending time with my family."
