Brooke feels vulnerable when she's spotted

Brooke Vincent admits she gets a bit self-conscious when people recognise her in public.

The actress, who’s played Coronation Street‘s Sophie Webster for 10 years, is flattered by the attention but feels embarrassed when she’s spotted in certain situations.

I love it when you meet kids and you absolutely make their day because they’re so excited to meet you,’ says Brooke, 21.

On the flip side, I was at the doctor’s the other day waiting for my prescription and the girl behind the counter started shouting: “Oh my God, she’s in Coronation Street!”

I sat there playing Bubble Pop on my phone wanting the world to swallow me up.

People don’t understand how much being recognised can embarrass you, especially when you’re on your own. It makes you feel vulnerable.’

Brooke finds it even more difficult to deal with if she’s not feeling her best.

[I wouldn’t be lapping it up] at 9 o’clock in the morning looking very rough,’ the pretty brunette admits.

That’s when it always happens.’
