'Coronation Street': Update on Kirsty's parents

By
It's no secret that Kirsty Soames's parents will be making an appearance on Coronation Street next week, and we've had a few people asking us if there are any more details on the pair.

For now at least, it looks like the couple are only appearing in one episode, but as seen in the spoilers, they turn up next Thursday (May 24) after Tyrone invites them to a surprise birthday party that he has organised for his pregnant fiancée.

Kirsty's father Edwin Soames is played by former Heartbeat actor David Lonsdale (pictured above), who also portrayed Corrie's Peter Barlow in 1986. Additionally, eagle-eyed fans saw Lonsdale pop up in Weatherfield for a brief appearance as a minor character in early 2011.

Kirsty's mum, meanwhile, is Alison Soames - played by actress Dawn Hope.

Without wanting to spoil too much, both seem friendly enough at first - but former policeman Ed soon shows a nasty side when he learns that Kirsty is pregnant and has been suspended from her job.

Both Kirsty and Alison appear fearful of Ed, which is explored further when Kirsty later opens up to Tyrone about her troubled past…

BSA 'Best Newcomer' winner Natalie Gumede, who plays Kirsty, recently had a chat to Digital Spy about the storyline and her character's latest violence towards Tyrone, so keep an eye out for it on the site in a few days' time.
