Coronation Street's Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) is to have a new love interest, with the character making their debut on Christmas Day.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Radio Times reports that Sophie will fall for Maddie Heath (Amy Kelly), a homeless girl who Sophie and mother Sally (Sally Dynevor) meet when they volunteer to work in a soup kitchen.

However, Sally's sense of superiority does not go down well with Maddie, who flings some trifle in her direction.
