Easy rider Becks is back in town

Manchester Evening News - - FRONT PAGE -

SHE’LL be at the cen­tre of the Corona­tion Street drama next week as part of an ex­plo­sive wed­ding sto­ry­line – but Catherine Tyldes­ley put the chaos of the cob­bles be­hind her as she cel­e­brated her birth­day.

The Walk­den ac­tress looked stun­ning as she par­tied with her su­per-glam Cor­rie pals ahead of her 34th birth­day to­mor­row.

Cath was joined by co-stars Antony Cot­ton, Bhavna Lim­bachia, Brooke Vin­cent, Debbie Rush, Ge­or­gia Tay­lor, Jimmi Hark­ishin and Tisha Merry at Be Im­pos­si­ble in Peter Street.

Manch­ester fash­ion de­signer Na­dine Mer­abi, Key 103 break­fast show pre­sen­ter Mike Toolan, her friends from UP Fit­ness in Manch­ester and her agent Laura Gra­ham were also among the guests.

Cath, look­ing stun­ning in a sleek one-shoul­dered black top from Top­shop teamed with a stylish pencil skirt and a cute leop­ard print clutch from Karen Millen, toasted her birth­day in Be Im­pos­si­ble’s Alpine style gin bar.

The soap favourite, who plays bride-to-be Eva Price, en­joyed gin-based cock­tails and fin­ger food and was pre­sented with a per­son­alised cho­co­late birth­day cake.

Shar­ing a photo of her­self with her cake on Instagram, she said: “Thankyou @im­pos­si­ble. manch­ester @vi­talpub­lic­ity for the most gor­geous evening ... early birth­day cel­e­bra­tions!”

Com­ment­ing on another photo of Cath about to hit the town, a fan said: “You are ab­so­lutely stun­ning.”

Brooke, who plays So­phie Web­ster, also turned heads in a khaki green mini-skirt and blouse ensem­ble with deep red an­kle boots and Bhavna, whose char­ac­ter Rana Nazir is set to have a ro­mance with Kate Con­nor on the show, wowed in fig­ure-hug­ging black jeans.

Tisha Merry, who played Steph Brit­ton, showed off her gym-honed fig­ure in a zesty orange mini skirt and cropped vel­vet top. And Ge­or­gia, who plays Rovers Re­turn land­lady Toyah Bat­tersby, was all smiles in an an­i­mal print shirt as she was spot­ted car­ry­ing a gift for the birth­day girl.

Jimmi, who plays shop boss Dev Ala­han, flashed a peace sign as he ar­rived for the bash.

From Mon­day, trou­ble will erupt at Eva and Ai­dan Con­nor’s wed­ding and view­ers will no doubt be glued to their screens as the bride faces her love ri­val Maria Con­nor af­ter she crashes her big day. Maria storms into the cer­e­mony and the two girls end up scream­ing at each other.

Just be­fore the cer­e­mony Ai­dan, played by Shayne Ward, re­veals to Eva that he has been hav­ing an af­fair with Maria, played by Samia Longcham­bon, not re­al­is­ing that Eva al­ready knows and has hatched a re­venge plan. Maria then gate­crashes the wed­ding and de­clares the cer­e­mony ‘a sham.’

View­ers will be on the edge of their seats wait­ing to see if Maria can call a halt to pro­ceed­ings.

Ac­tress Samia couldn’t be at Cath’s cel­e­bra­tions but she sent a mes­sage on Instagram to her friend, say­ing: “Have a lovely night dar­lin... sorry I can’t be there xx”
