Coronation Street fans will meet Kelly Neelan’s suspicious prison ally, Mia in upcoming scenes.
Kelly (Mollie Gibbons) is currently behind bars for the murderer Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni).
After his legal team pulled out all stops, Seb’s true killer, Corey Brent (Maximus Evans), was released.
Kelly, played by Madeleine Edmondson as a teenager, made contact with Mia her fellow prisoner in Friday’s ITV soap.
Kelly will likely find out the truth concerning Rick Neelan, her father (Greg Wood), through Mia.
But who is Madeleine Edmondson, you ask? Why does she look so familiar to us?
Madeleine is an English actress who made her TV acting debut in 2016.
The youngster was cast as Chloe Gifford, an ITV drama that was relaunched in 2016. She appeared in 26 episodes.
In 2020, she was a Carmilla Clove character in The Worst Witch’s episode.
In Tracey Beaker’s spinoff show, The Dumping Ground she played Sienna.
Madeleine made her Coronation Street debut on Friday, September 17.
Posting to Instagram ahead of the episodes airing, Madeleine wrote: “For those who are interested, I’ll be appearing towards the end of tonight’s Coronation Street.”
In scenes to air next week, Kelly will be left feeling rejected by her new friend following a visit from her dad Rick’s old associate, Sharon Geary (Naomi Cooper-Davis).

The trouble begins when Sharon informs Kelly that she doesn’t have to worry about raising money for her legal fees, as a donation has been made by an anonymous source to help fund her appeal.
Kelly believes that Rick has given her the money and is delighted to hear it.
Kelly is delighted with this development but Mia is disturbed to find Sharon in prison. Kelly then informs Mia that Sharon works for Rick.
Kelly asks Mia why Rick is bothering her. Mia cannot hide her shock and Kelly obliges.
Kelly is shocked when Mia tells Kelly that Rick is responsible for her imprisonment and her mother’s death.
Kelly, still reeling, tells Mia that her father is now in Spain and is responsible to pay her legal fees. However, Mia isn’t convinced and believes someone has robbed Rick of his freedom.
Coronation Street viewers will be aware that Rick was murdered by Gary Windass, (Mikey Nord) in 2019, in self-defence. Gary paid Kelly’s legal fees because of his guilt.
Kelly calls Gary to find out the truth about her father.
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV at 7.30pm and 8.30pm
