Charlotte Jordan, who plays Daisy Midgeley, said: ‘Yay yay yay,’ and Asha Alahan actress Tanisha Grey added: ‘Ahhhh!!! Ever so proud.’

Congrats, Kimberly!

Kimberly portrayed Nicky in Coronation Street on and off over the past two years.

Nicky befriended Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) in the wake of Sinead Tinker’s (Katie McGlynn) death, and she later returned to the cobbles, hoping to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher.

Things didn’t exactly work out, and she subsequently left the eponymous street when Daniel rejected her.

She made one final appearance earlier this year, when Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) took her home from the police station after she was arrested.
