ITV Corrie fans wonder where they have seen Toyah’s tattooed solicitor Kim before

Corrie fans heaped praise on a new character as she made her arrival in Wednesday’s episode (June 15). Toyah was introduced to her solicitor as she is accused of the murder of her husband Imran Habeeb in a horror car crash.

Toyah is desperate to clear her name over the death of Imran, especially after solicitor Imran’s colleague and best friend Adam Barlow turned his back on her. But she was far from impressed when Kim Wallis arrived to help her.

She turned her nose up at Kim’s arm tattoo but was warned she’d better change her attitude. And viewers flocked to Twitter to say they wanted to see the solicitor made a regular on the famous cobbles.

Soap watcher @Meggie16309037 scolded: “FFS Toyah, tattoos are acceptable now you know.” @ruth_clark said: “Wind your neck in Toyah she’s there to help you.” And @Willswhinge tweeted: “Toyah’s solicitor should get a job working with Adam.”

@Mel_Navan asked: “Can we keep the solicitor? She’s class.” @Ockeghem1497 declared: “Make that solicitor a regular!” And @eileendavidson0 said: “Toyah’s solicitor is too iconic for this #Corrie.”

Straight-talking Kim told it as it is

Others said the actress seemed familiar and wondered where they had seen her before. @Adrienne65 asked: “Where have I seen Toyah’s solicitor before?” And @Mel_Navan said: “She looks familiar, the solicitor.”

Kim is played by Rebecca Hesketh-Smith an actress who has previously starred in the Manchester-based drama Life in 2020, the Sky series Britannia and Casualty. Rebecca also starred in the BBC Two TV film Mother’s Day about the 1993 Warrington bomb attack.

Sharing her excitement about her Coronation Street role she said: “Tell ya Mum I’m in Corr-eh tonight! Tryna keep people out of prison. 8-9pm, tune in!”

Toyah was not impressed

Toyah, played by Georgia Taylor, was seen on CCTV driving her car into a building after a blazing row with Imran over the custody fight for his son Alfie. She lied to police about Imran leaving her a voicemail where he confessed to framing Alfie’s mum Abu Webster as using drugs again.

With Toyah insisting she hadn’t had a message the police detective played it to her. And she said: “Toyah Habeeb, I am arrested you on the suspicion of the murder of Imran Habeeb.”
