Coronation Street star Paula Lane has revealed that she spent time at a real-life lap-dancing bar to prepare for her latest storyline.

Later this week, viewers will see that the actress's character Kylie Platt is working at a strip club after walking out on husband David.

Lane joined members of the Coronation Street team to check out a real-life venue for herself before filming the scenes.

The 26-year-old told The Mirror: "It was only for research! Let's just say it was certainly a different world to the one I'm used to."

She continued: "The scenes were shot in a real-life club, so myself, the director and location manager went there one night to prepare for this storyline.

"It was an eye-opening experience, but I don't look down my nose at the girls who work in those places. They're just making a living. That's why Kylie gets a job in the strip club - she can't find work anywhere else and resorts to desperate measures."

David's half-brother Nick comes face-to-face with Kylie while she is at work in Thursday night's (May 17) episode. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
