Well this is probably the least shocking TV news story ever, given that Sarah Harding may have been the worst actress to ever grace the cobbles. The Girls Aloud star is a huge fan of the soap and managed to score herself a role as Joni Preston, the wife of Tracy Barlow's ex-husband.

When Alya ( Sair Khan ) finally goes ahead and takes her pregnancy test at work, she makes the classic soap mistake of failing to hide it well enough in the bin afterwards.
