Corrie's Gumede doesn't like Kirsty
Natalie Gumede wouldn't want to be friends with her Corrie character Kirsty Soames
Coronation Street's Natalie Gumede has confessed she doesn't like her character Kirsty Soames .
The actress plays the Weatherfield policewoman who has begun abusing fiance Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall), and the 27-year-old told Inside Soap magazine that while she tries to make viewers see she is not all bad, she struggles to see it herself.
Natalie said: "I think it's important to bring warmth to Kirsty because people have to understand why Tyrone's in love with her.
"But if Kirsty were real, I wouldn't want to be friends with her!"
The soap star also revealed she has been getting hot and bothered wearing her fake baby bump since Kirsty got pregnant.
She said: "To be honest, the baby bump isn't my favourite thing. It's like an all-in-one bodysuit with a cushion sewn in. And now that the studios are getting warmer, it's not the most comfortable thing to wear.
"Working with a baby will be another new challenge for me!"
