EastEnders’ Heather Trott actress Cheryl Fergison begs for part on Coronation Street after seven stars quit

EASTENDERS’ actress Cheryl Fergison has begged Coronation Street to give her a part after seven stars quit.

The 53-year-old, who played Heather Trott on the BBC show between 2007 to 2012, tweeted the soap asking if they had any “spare parts”.

She wrote: "Ok… so @coronationstreet actresses seem to be leaving one by one.

"Well this actress right here would be very happy treading the cobbles if there was a spare role going?"

Since leaving the soap Cheryl has appeared in Celebrity Big Brother as well as a number of other reality shows and has appeared on stage in Liverpool.

Yesterday Lucy Fallon became the seventh star to leave the crisis-hit soap in three months.

She is leaving Coronation Street once her contract expires in 2020 to pursue other acting roles.
