Suranne claimed she was ‘used’ by Coronation Street after being encouraged to do risqué photoshoots.

The former soap star has admitted that it ‘wasn’t what she signed up to’ and insisted that ‘all soaps used their girls in that way’.

‘I don’t think Coronation Street was alone in that. I think all of the soaps used their girls in that way.’

Suranne left the cobbles and went onto success in high profile roles including in BBC’s Doctor Foster and Gentleman Jack.  MailOnline contacted ITV for comment.
