As an actress and self-confessed Corrie fan, Connie Hyde is thrilled to be at the centre of a huge Christmas storyline this December.
But she’s preparing to hide indoors after the big festive episodes, in which her character Gina Seddon doesn’t just stab her sister Sally Metcalfe in the back – she turns the knife a few times for good measure.
And fans of Sally will be baying for blood at the scenes!
It’s no secret that Gina has developed feelings for her brother-in-law Tim over the past few months…
I’ll probably be bombarding myself in the house, avoiding getting egged.
She’s even been meeting with conman Duncan and believing all his lies about her sister – bad sibling!
In fact, Gina was even instrumental in getting Sally sent down after testifying in court and implying Sally DID have an affair with Duncan.
Spoilers have told us that Gina and Tim’s chemistry comes to a head over Christmas, and actress Connie has teased an explosive time ahead for Sally’s duplicitous sister.
Speaking to metro.co.uk about Gina’s big Christmas storyline, Connie said: “It’s exciting, because she’s only been in it a couple of years. So it’s an honour, really.
“I always watched it on Christmas Day, so to be on it is an honour and I’m looking forward to it.”
But she also admitted she’s expecting backlash from fans, saying: “I’ll probably be bombarding myself in the house, avoiding getting egged!”
She also suggested that long-term Gina is too “chaotic” for Tim, and that he’d “very soon get sick of her”.
Is Sally about to lose her husband as well as her freedom?
With a shock twist coming in the New Year meaning Sally is freed, we wouldn’t like to be in Gina’s shoes.
