"Coronation Street" actress Dolly-Rose Campbell has come out as bisexual.

The soap star - who has played Gemma Winter on the cobbles since 2014 - has credited the Manchester Pride parade and the city's own openness with helping her feel comfortable with her own sexuality.

In an advert for this year's celebrations, she said: "I have been coming to Pride for over a decade now.

"The love and acceptance shown by the people of Manchester allowed me to accept my bisexuality and be proud of who I am."

The actress - who is an ambassador for Manchester Pride - also heaped praise on the organisation and the work it does to help members of the LGBTQ+ community.

In the new clip, she also performs a poem called "Mine is the Pride", and she has described the role in the video as "an honour".
