Kerri Quinn was "beyond excited" about returning to "Coronation Street" to star alongside "the hottest man on TV" Tristan Gemmill.

The cobbles star has returned to the ITV soap as Vicky Jefferies, who is pregnant after an affair with Tristan's character Robert Preston, who is back with Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) and yet to find out he has a baby on the way with his former flame.

And Kerri - whose alter-ego Vicky first appeared in the ITV soap in September as mother of Simon Barlow's (Alex Bain) bully Tyler Jefferies (Will Barnett) - couldn't wait to get stuck into the new secret baby storyline.

She said: "I was beyond excited, I'd seen Michelle and Robert on screen and thought they were a great couple, so when I was told I was going to be paired up with Robert, who is probably the hottest man on TV, I was alright with that.

"To be asked back was exciting in itself but to be asked back to be part of this storyline I was delighted.

"I've never worked with a nicer bunch of people, I've been welcomed with open arms so if you combine working in an environment like this with amazing people and a fantastic storyline then it's the dream job. It's amazing to be here."

But Kerri, who is from Belfast, admits it was tough keeping her latest "Corrie" plot a secret, because so many of her pals are fans of the soap.

Asked if he was hard keeping the storyline away from her family and friends, she added: "It has been back at home because a lot of people are aware I'm back filming, but not what for so I've had to mind what I say.

"So many people are "Corrie" fans that they're desperate to know what my storyline is going to be and they've been trying to piece it together.

"We've seen Robert disappearing and Vicky being attacked and ringing someone so the clues were there."
