"Someone close to her passed away and she blames a 5G mast," McGlynn said of Becky.

"She thinks they're big death pylons, and cause brain tumours. She's been completely brainwashed, but strangely, that has brought some comfort in her grief.

"Diane is very impressionable; she's still working through her OCD, so of all the people for her to make friends with, Becky is the worst."

As for where Becky's storyline leads, the soap star went on to tease: "I guess what has happened with Becky can happen to anyone. She really does believe that 5G masts are dangerous, and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

"But things will happen with this story to show that what you read online may not be true, and sometimes you need to take things with a pinch of salt."
