I loved all the stuff with Spider when Toyah became an eco warrior. I think when you are a teenager, you are looking for direction and you soak things up like a sponge – and she really did. And I loved it when Ken Barlow tutored her. At the moment, I love working with Chris Gascoyne [Peter Barlow]. I think you live or die by the people you work with, and Chris is fantastic.
I’ve never laughed so much as I did when I worked with Bradley Walsh [Danny Baldwin]. I was pregnant at the time – the tricks they came up with to hide my bump! The best one was when they had me carry a box of knickers at Underworld and they cut a hole in the side of it to put my bump in! And I’ve loved Leanne’s relationships with Peter and Nick [Ben Price].
