Sophie Thompson makes Coronation Street debut as clairvoyant Rosemary

First-look pictures of Harry Potter star Sophie Thompson’s debut in Coronation Street show her as clairvoyant Rosemary.

The medium arrives on the cobbles to tell Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) that not only is she in contact with her dead husband Alf, but she also has a message for Audrey’s daughter Gail (Helen Worth) from her dead husbands.

Despite reservations from her daughter and Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon), who tell her Rosemary is a fake, Audrey is convinced she is the real thing and makes a booking with her.

She will make her debut on the soap on ITV on March 12.
