Coronation Street casts Nicola Barber-Lane
Nicole is playing a character called Ange, who’s going to appear in a few episodes. She’s the owner of a local cab firm that wants to use Websters’ Auto.
She shared the news on her Instagram feed, saying it was “such a pleasure to do a little cameo”.
Ange is only scheduled to appear briefly – at the moment – but Myra McQueen was also introduced as a secondary character and Nicole ended up staying on Hollyoaks for 13 years, so who knows what could happen?!
