The actress was already a huge fan of the show when she moved from viewer to a member of the cast.

She told iN10: “I have always been a massive fan of Coronation Street. I’d had an audition before the tour, and I wasn’t expecting anything, but then just a couple of days later I got the call saying I had got the part.”

She was originally cast in six episodes but made such a good impression on producers that she’s still on the show six years later.

Dolly-Rose is a hit with views and critics and in 2017 won Best Comedy Performance at the British Soap Awards and Funniest Female at the Inside Soap Awards.

Previous to this, Dolly-Rose worked at a radio station and topped up her income by working in a bar.

Being on Coronation Street sorted out her finances, and Dolly could buy her first home recently.

Dolly-Rose is a huge art fan and is a custodian at the Islington Mill, an independent arts hub in Salford, Manchester.

Dolly-Rose is also an ambassador and volunteer at Emmeline's pantry, a food bank in Manchester run by women for women and their families.

Despite being a Mum-of-four on screen, in real life, Dolly-rose doesn’t have any children.


Last year, the actress came out as bisexual ahead of doing a voiceover for Manchester Pride.

Speaking to The Daily Star, she said: “I have been coming to pride for over a decade now. The love and acceptance shown by the people of Manchester allowed me to accept my bisexuality and be proud of who I am.”

Last year Dolly Rose recorded a message of support for LGBTQ+ people in isolation due to the pandemic.
