Amy Kelly: Corrie lesbian kiss was daunting

Amy Kelly and Brooke Vincent

Coronation Street's Amy Kelly found her first lesbian kiss ''daunting''.

The young actress joined the ITV soap last year as Sophie Webster's new girlfriend Maddie Heath and she admits she was nervous about locking lips with stunning Brooke Vincent.

However, Amy has praised Brooke for easing her into the steamy scenes and says the pair have become close.

She told The Sun newspaper: ''I'm not a lesbian and it was a bit daunting at first. But just before we filmed it, Brooke said, 'Do you want me to kiss you first?' And I said, 'OK', because she's been doing it on screen for years.

''And we had to film that one scene so many times that by the end of the day I'd got used to it.

''Now it doesn't bother me - I get on so well with Brooke it's not weird any more.''

Amy is still a college student and has to juggle her role in 'Corrie' with her A-levels in art, photography and theatre studies.

She said: ''It is hard, but I've only got a couple of months left until my exams.''

The youngster is also coming to terms with her newfound fame and is often stopped in the street by fans asking if she's a lesbian in real life.

Amy explained: ''The most frequent questions I'm asked are, 'Are you really a lesbian?' 'Is Brooke really a lesbian?' 'Have you met Michelle Keegan?' and 'Can I have Michelle's phone number?' The answers are 'No, no, yes and no!' ''
