Coronation Street new arrival Daisy Midgeley set to cause trouble for Jenny

Coronation Street viewers are set to see a new character arrive on the cobbles soon – Daisy Midgeley.

She will be played by actress Charlotte Jordan, and is the daughter of Jenny Connor's ex-husband, who she helped raise as a teen.

The two characters had been close, however Jenny's marriage with Daisy's father crumbled when Jenny's son died.

However the duo have always kept in touch, and Jenny is ecstatic when Daisy arrives for a visit.

But things change when it's clear Daisy is making herself right at home.

And Jenny soon realises that there is more to Daisy than her sweet name might suggest.

Viewers will learn that Daisy is full of fun as well as being a serious minx, so Weatherfield residents best keep an eye out for her.

Corrie Producer Iain MacLeod explained: "Daisy might seem like sweetness and light at first, but can be a maelstrom of minxy mischief when the mood takes her.

"She revels in devilment and can be very self-serving, but she's fiercely loyal to those she cares about – although her loyalties can change in a heartbeat.

"Above all, she will bring chaos and conflict into Jenny's life, as her step-mum tries to make up for walking out on her some years ago."

Actress Charlotte, whose previous credits include Netflix drama Free Rein, said: "I am thrilled to be joining such a well-beloved and iconic show like Corrie during its 60th anniversary and especially whilst living in such uncertain times.

"Daisy has been a delight to play so far with her lack of filter and flirty nature but there's certainly more to her than meets the eye.

"I'm excited to flesh her out and see what lies ahead for hers and Jenny's relationship."

It looks like Jenny is in for a dramatic end to 2020.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
