Tracy Barlow to hit the warpath

Tracy Barlow to hit the warpath

Coronation Street's Tracy Barlow is "out for revenge".

Kate Ford - who has starred as Tracy in the TV3 soap since 2002 - has revealed her character is to become nastier than ever after her fiancé Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) was arrested for the murder of Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan).

She explained: "The thing with Tracy is that when she's hurt, then she's vicious. And because she's so hurt, you're really going to see her bitchy and nasty side."

The 36-year-old actress says Tracy will first take out her anger on Rob's sister Carla Connor (Alison King), who called the police on her brother following his murder admission, not wanting to let husband Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoigne) rot in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

Kate told The Sun newspaper: "Firstly she steps up her war with Carla, who she 100% blames for all this.

"She feels like Carla should have kept her mouth shut and that this woman took away her chance of happiness, so she's out for revenge."

And Tracy is to find herself embroiled in a seedy affair with Liz McDonald's (Beverly Callard) boyfriend Tony Stewart (Terence Maynard).

She added: "She's going to have a fling with Tony. It's nothing like her relationship with Rob. It's not a big love affair - it's messy, involving things like blackmail, power and money.

"It's a negative relationship, it's not good for any of them and the stuff we've shot is quite dark."
