Waterloo Road actress Katie McGlynn is set to join the cast of Coronation Street in the role of Beth Tinker's niece Sinead Tinker.
McGlynn who is best known for her role as Jodie 'Scout' Allen in the BBC1 school drama will turn up on the street to stay with her aunt, outspoken factory worker Beth Tinker (Lisa George) where she is tipped to turn heads.
With the news that Katy Armstrong is set to fall for local bad boy Ryan Connor in the coming weeks, her boyfriend Chesney Brown (Sam Astron) is tipped to fall for the newcomer.
The ITV website teased: ''As Katy struggles to resist the temptation of smooth talking Ryan, Chesney faces a heartbreaking few months. Will new girl Sinead be his light at the end of the tunnel?''
