Julia Goulding admitted to a childhood crush on her Coronation Street co-star
Simon Gregson who plays Steve McDonald.
The actress joined the soap in December 2016 and recalled their first meeting during a chat with Lorraine.
She said: "I remember meeting David Neilson, who plays Roy Cropper and Simon. They were the first two people who shook my hand. I remember it being odd. I didn't know what to do with myself."
Julia, who plays Shona Ramsey, joined us to talk about the show's upcoming male rape storyline involving her on-screen boyfriend David Platt - one of the soap’s most controversial storylines ever.
Julia said: "We have a great research team and Corrie are going to be handling this really, really sensitively."
She continued: "It's important to do this storyline, just to highlight it and get it out there, make it less taboo and give people the opportunity to speak out if they need to."
