Coronation Street’s Alex Mardell gives fans a rare look behind the scenes of the soap with on-set pic

CORONATION Street star Alex Mardell sent fans into a frenzy yesterday as she posted a rare snap from the famous set. 

The actress, 28, gave fans a glimpse of behind the scenes when she shared a picture of Alina Pop’s flat.

Alex, who was dressed in multiple shades of pink, appeared in a cheerful mood and held up a mug that read “boss babe”.

She wrote alongside the photo: “Just a reminder to those who need it to be a BOSS BABE.”

Fans were quick to comment, with one posting: “Love your character. Definitely needs to be more Emmas in the world.”

Another added: “So talented, you make us smile.”

Others were quick to point out that Alina’s flat hasn’t been painted since the fire, with one writing: “Paint your walls.”

Another said: “When are they going to paint those burned walls? Lol.”

Corrie fans were baffled when Emma asked Alina if her boyfriend Curtis could move his stuff into their flat earlier this month. 

Alina happily agreed, but ITV viewers were sceptical that a small flat could house four people, including Tyrone.

Viewers know that Emma was keen to keep an eye on Curtis after he was rushed to hospital after collapsing earlier this month.

The medical student has a life-threatening condition that has seen him die twice.

Emma was left panicking when Curtis disappeared after being released from hospital – and was worried he’d collapsed again. 

However, she and Steve eventually found Curtis drowning his sorrows in the Rovers. 

When Steve gave Curtis a stern talking to and warned him not to mess Emma around, Curtis opened up and admitted he just wishes that the hospital would give him a proper diagnosis and some answers. 

Speaking about how there’s going to be bumps in the road for Emma and Curtis in upcoming scenes, Alex recently told Digital Spy: "Emma's been putting on a show, because she initially told Curtis that she could deal with this.

"In front of him she wants to be as strong as possible so she can support him, but inside, she's distraught.

"It's fair to say that Emma's not necessarily been lucky in love this time round either. This situation is going to get really, really complicated for both her and Curtis," she said.

"Emma is really compassionate and empathetic, but this is going to test her much more than she ever anticipated…"
