Coronation Street to explore Angie Appleton's intriguing backstory this year

Coronation Street star Victoria Ekanoye has revealed that viewers will learn more about Angie Appleton’s past later this year.

Angie has had a difficult time since arriving on the cobbles in August 2017, suffering from post-natal depression and learning about her husband Jude’s lie about working as a marine biologist.

The actress shared news that the character will be getting more screentime, and she’s feeling “excited” for people at home to see her backstory.

“Towards the end of the year, we’re going to see a lot more focus on Angie and her past and to see why she is the way that she is and where that’s come from,” she told The Sun.

“I had a meeting with [boss Iain MacLeod] a few weeks ago, and it went really, really well. And he’s lovely and I’m really excited to work with him. We talked a lot about Angie and her backstory and what we’re going to do.”

Ekanoye also discussed Angie’s struggles and what the character is going through right now.

“She’s struggling, she’s really struggling,” she said. “It’s a lot of things.

“Initially, she didn’t want to move to Weatherfield, and then she was struggling with the baby and the post-natal depression, and then not being able to work.

“She’s been miserable for quite a while. Post-natal depression is no laughing matter and so many women struggle from it, and I think it was that and all the other things surrounding it that made her really struggle to get by.

“Now it’s difficult because she’s not finding that respect for Jude. She’s really struggling to find that, and you need that in a relationship but she’s lost it.”

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
