Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A TAL­ENTED Mac­cles­field ac­tress has set her sights on the cob­bles of Coronation Street after mak­ing her Weather­field de­but.

Alice Barlow, 25, from Hen­bury, has sparked ru­mours of a per­ma­nent role on one of Bri­tain’s best loved soaps after she was spot­ted play­ing flirty wait­ress ‘Nancy’ in Fri­day night’s episode.

For­mer Fal­li­b­roome Academy stu­dent Alice is no stranger to tele­vi­sion, play­ing trou­bled Rae in Hol­lyoaks and show­cas­ing her singing tal­ents on BBC’s The Voice, but is keep­ing tight lipped about her fu­ture on the cob­bles.

Her mum, Sally, said Alice’s ap­pear­ance in Fri­day’s episode has re­ceived a fan­tas­tic re­sponse, with many watch­ers tak­ing to Twit­ter after spot­ting the Hol­lyoaks ac­tress work­ing in the soap’s Bistro.

She said: “I knew she was go­ing to be on Coronation Street so I watched it and told my friends, but I didn’t ex­pect it to be all over the pa­pers the next day.

“There’s been a fan­tas­tic re­sponse, we are thrilled.”

Alice, who lives with mum Sally in Mac­cles­field, has also en­joyed roles in ITV’s Crime Sto­ries, Drifters, Ca­su­alty and Benidorm, and has also per­formed for the troops in Afghanistan, which she is hop­ing to do again.
