Catherine Tyldesley has landed her first post-"Coronation Street" role just five months after leaving the soap.

The former "Corrie" actress - who played Eva Price in the ITV soap from 2011 to 2018 - has joined Channel 5 for an upcoming crime drama series, "15 Days", which will see the star play alongside "Unforgotten" actor Tom Rhys Harries.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Cath was offered big money to do reality TV shows, but she was determined to stick with acting."

Catherine's role is unknown, but the storyline will open with a horrifying murder and then take viewers back in time by 15 days to show the disturbing events that occur before the tragedy.

The soap star previously teased a new show she has signed up for, admitting her alter-ego is "very different" compared to bubbly barmaid Eva.

"I can't wait - it's extremely well written and my character is very different to Eva."

The 35-year-old blonde beauty quit the cobbles after playing Eva for seven years, and admitted she found it tough to shoot some of her emotionally-charged exit scenes.

She previously told BANG Showbiz: "It is tiring, because obviously you have to go there to make it believable, so your nervous system doesn't necessarily understand that you're only pretending, so it is tiring, but I think you've just got to look after yourself and try and laugh as much in between.

"Shayne Ward (Aidan Connor) was always good for that."
