Coronation Street viewers couldn’t have been more relieved when sassy lawyer Paula Martin (Stirling Gallacher) returned to the soap recently and rekindled her popular romance with Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent). But with Sophie set to depart with Brooke heading on maternity leave, there could well be heartache ahead.
Confirming that she is staying on long term in the role of Paula (Hooray!), Stirling acknowledged that Sophie would have to disappear soon – but whether or not that means a devastating split or just means Sophie will go travelling, visit releatives or pop upstairs for a year remains to be seen.
But Stirling told Metro.co.uk that she has been overwhelmed by the response to #Saula as she genuinely believed she would get backlash due to the age difference.
Even when Sophie is gone for a bit, Paula will be kept busy with work as Stirling confirmed her involvement in more than one criminal proceeding. As well as the factory collapse, she teased that other crimes would be committed that might require a lawyer’s expertise.
If ever there’s a Street where a lawyer can make a mint, it’s this one. Paula is wise to stick around!
