'Coronation Street's Sally is set to change her mind about her daughter's new romance in the coming weeks.

Speaking to New magazine, actress Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster in the show, said that her character will soon grow to accept Sophie and Sian's lesbian relationship.

The actress said: "At first, she's really shocked and says daft things like, 'I'm not having any dungarees in this house!' But then she becomes quite protective of Sophie and Sian and defends them.

"I'm so glad the writers have done it like that, because at first I wasn't sure Sally would accept it. The fact she's supportive is really good."
