Catherine Tyldesley has revealed she would love to appear in Strictly Come Dancing now that she has left Coronation Street. The 34-year-old, who is known for playing Eva Price in the ITV soap, is a huge fan of the BBC dancing competition. "I love watching Strictly," she shared during her appearance on Thursday's Good Morning Britain. "I think it's a fantastic show. Never say never. At the moment I'm just focusing on the acting. But it's a great show - it's amazing."

When asked if show bosses have approached her, the soap star replied: "I'm focused on acting at the minute. But, somewhere down the line I'd love to do it. Absolutely." Catherine went on to confirm that she has a few more weeks until her character official departs from Corrie. "Yes, two weeks ago now I filmed my last scene," she added. "I'm on screen until the start of August, and there's a lot crammed into that time, some brilliant stuff, some really good stories."
Her on-screen alter ego, Eva, was recently left heartbroken after she discovered that her ex-boyfriend, Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward), had taken his own life. "I think we're all in some way affected by suicide," the star confessed. "Everybody knows somebody and there was a huge response, and what we have to keep in mind is that this storyline has helped hundreds of thousands of people and it saved lives." She added: "Shayne [Ward] and I were getting messages from complete strangers saying, 'I tried to commit suicide' or, 'I'm feeling very depressed', and in turn we've referred them to the right people, which is amazing."
