Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn has said that Sinead Tinker will always have fears for the future as she hears the results of her cancer treatment next week.

Coming up in the soap, Sinead will tell Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) that the cancer could come back, despite getting the good news that the tumour hasn't grown.

The 25-year-old actress has said that Sinead's reaction is very realistic.

"I think once you've been diagnosed with cancer it never leaves you and Sinead says that's how she feels to Beth", McGlynn said. 

"It’s always going to be in the back of Sinead’s mind, no matter how happy she is, no matter how far down the line she is because the reality is, it can come back. "

She continued: "Sinead feels upset for admitting it because she feels like she should be feeling a sense of relief but she isn’t.

"She has accepted the fact that she has had cancer and it’s always going to be in the back of her head. She will never go back to how she was before, it’s changed her forever."

McGlynn said that Sinead just wants to "feel normal again" whereas Daniel "constantly wants to do things together".

"Daniel is acting as though everything is hunky-dory and it annoys her because she just wants to feel like a normal woman", she said.

However, Sinead and Daniel are heading for happier times when he proposes for a second time.

"She thinks it’s sweet and she is very touched", McGlynn said of Daniel's proposal. 

"After everything that has happened to them as a couple it means a lot to her that Daniel says it all over again because it solidifies how much they love each other and she is overwhelmed with love. "

Coronation Street airs on Virgin Media One and ITV on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
