Coronation Street star Natalie Gumede has said that fans of the soap should prepare for much more malice from her character, Kirsty.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Kirsty's new plan is to make people believe that Tyrone (Alan Halsall) has been attacking her – but actress Gumede says Tyrone's trauma won't end there.

She told the Daily Star: "I don't think there are limits to what Kirsty will do next. Although I don't think it will be as calculated, she's an intelligent girl and she knows how to manipulate things.

"When she's given a set of circumstances, she knows how to turn them to her favour."
