Is Alex Going Off The Rails?

Cathy's worried that Alex has been enjoying his new found freedom a little too much. We asked Liam Bairstow whether Alex can have too much of a good thing?

Is Alex’s drinking a recent problem?

It is a recent thing, he’s drinking with his friends.

Why do you think it is that he’s turning to the bottle at this particular point in his life?

I think he’s trying to impress his friends so he can be part of the group. It makes him feel like they welcome him being with them.

What does Cathy think of his drinking?

She’s not happy but if anyone can get through to him it’s Cathy. He thinks she’s a bit of a nag at the moment but she’s no worse than his mum, Nessa.

Can you tell us what’s going on at home with his mum?

Lately she’s been trying to get Alex to go to Scotland with her and her new boyfriend. But he doesn’t really want to go. He wants to stay with his Auntie Cathy and Roy but things take a turn for the worse.

Why doesn’t he want to move to Scotland?

He doesn’t get along with his mum’s boyfriend. His mum doesn’t spend a lot of time with him, she’s really not interested.

Why does he want to move in with Cathy?

Because he knows Cathy cares more than his mum. Cathy treats him like a nephew but also like a son. He likes Cathy.

Will this see Alex move to Weatherfield permanently?

I don’t know, but I’d like that.

How do you feel about becoming a more regular fixture in Corrie?

I feel really excited, really emotional.

What’s the Corrie experience been like for you so far?

It’s been a rollercoaster on my journey.

Has anyone in the cast taken you under their wing and shown you the ropes?

William Roache is so supportive and always gives me a hug when he sees me. Kym Marsh, Debbie Rush and Beverley Callard have been great too and Melanie Hill who plays Cathy has done some extra rehearsals with me and she’s been really supportive which helps with the relationship between the characters.

Who have you enjoyed working with the most?

David Neilson who plays Roy. I really like him. Shayne Ward as well, I’ve done lots of scenes with him now.

Have you been recognised by Corrie fans when you’ve been out and about?

I’ve had girls wave at me and someone asked me for a selfie at the train station.

What else is coming up for Alex in the coming weeks/months?

I don’t know but there’s been talk about a possible girlfriend in the long term.
