aesthetic: Sophie Webster is leaving Corronation Street for good. The entire week before she goes she’s ecstatic, mentioning slyly here and there about some girl she’s met. Everyone hums about, asking who she is but Soph just holds this coy smile, “someone I feel like I’ve waited my whole life for,” is all she says. The day comes for her to leave and she waves off goodbye to her family and friends. Kate and Rana are even there, happily wishing their friend well as they say goodbye. It’s sentimental and sweet, her luggage right behind her. “Let me take you to the cabs, soph” Sally begs but Sophie refuses. “That’ll just make it harder mum, you know”, pulling Sally into a last hard hug. “I’ll call you when I get there.” She calls behind her. Rounding the corner to the cab station she waits for a car to pass the street and with a smile on her face, we see just who Sophie has been going on about. Patiently waiting on the cab station bench, is Sian. A massive smile on her face as she stares at Sophie with baited breath, watching with love as she crosses the street.
“Sometimes for a laugh we
pretend we are a real couple. We were out in London recently and this
boy was desperate to talk to Sacha. He wouldn’t leave her alone. I was
so fed up, I said, “Mate, do you want to stop talking to my bird?” And
then we both marched off hand in hand!”
