The Corrie star is looking hot

Catherine Tyldesley is thrilled to be considered a sex symbol.

The actress, who plays factory worker Eva Price in Coronation Street, has lots of admirers but admits she’s still getting used to the attention.

It’s weird,’ says Catherine, 30.

I think I’m kind of average – I don’t think of myself as sexy. But it is always nice to get a compliment.

It’s important for women to feel sexy and healthy.’

Catherine famously slimmed down from a size 22 to a size 10 by shedding 6st and she hopes to maintain her great figure as she ages.

Getting older doesn’t bother me – everyone gets old and wrinkly,’ the blonde star tells TV Extra.

I just hope that it doesn’t all sag too much!’

Coronation Street has won a bunch of gongs at the British Soap Awards 2014 – watch the ceremony on Sunday 25 May at 8.15pm on ITV.
