It comes after Sally celebrated earlier this year when it was revealed Vicky had been made a permanent member of the show's cast. She was revealed to now be a regular in the ITV soap after joining in 2021 as DS Lisa Swain.

The actress originally only signed up for eight episodes as the detective sergeant was first seen in 2021 when she led the police investigation into the assaults on Nina Lucas and Seb Franklin which led to the latter's death. In more recent months, Corrie viewers have seen Swain face backlash from Daisy Midgeley after the police didn't stop her stalker Justin Rutherford before he launched a horrific acid attack on her wedding day and was also seen leading the hunt for serial killer Stephen Reid back in October.
