'Fiery' story ahead for Toyah as star signs new Coronation Street contract
Toyah Battersby could be at the centre of some ‘fiery’ scenes, teased actress Georgia Taylor, who confirmed that she has signed a new deal to stay put on Coronation Street.
Georgia, 41, joined the ITV soap back in 1997, and swiftly became a fan-favourite as Toyah. She left the show in 2003, but returned a whopping 13 years later, and has remained a huge part of the cobbles ever since.
Since returning to the eponymous street, Toyah has been at the centre of many a huge storyline, from her troubled relationship with Peter Barlow, to becoming a foster parent with Imran Habeeb.
‘I feel like there’s still a huge amount to do with the character,’ explained Georgia, discussing her reasons for staying put on the long-running serial drama. ‘I’m very happy to be sticking around.’
Toyah’s world came crashing down on Wednesday (October 13), when she discovered that Imran had cheated on her on the night of Kelly Neelan’s (Milly Gibson) verdict.
Viewers saw the mainstay berate Imran for betraying her in such a fashion, branding him a ‘pig’.
‘I’ve missed playing that fiery side to her,’ Georgia told The Mirror. ‘I’m really happy we’re getting a bit of it back.’
‘I feel like Toyah has been there for everyone else over the past couple of years and it’s time for her to stand up for herself.’
‘I’ve been a bit desperate for this revelation to come out – the bit of it that Toyah knows anyway – and it looks like she’s finally reaching the end of her tether.
‘She’s never going to be that 16-year-old again, the one who would have gone in and trashed The Kabin, but I think a bit more Battersby attitude from her is definitely a good thing.’
Imran, while admitting that he cheated, refrained from telling Toyah the whole truth, as it was later revealed that the mystery woman he cheated with was Abi Franklin.
