Charlotte Jordan joins the cast of Coronation Street playing Daisy Midgeley, a blast from Jenny's past.

Coronation Street has announced the casting of Charlotte Jordan as Daisy Midgeley, a blast from the past for Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews).

Daisy is the daughter of Jenny's ex-husband whom the Rovers landlady helped to raise when she was a teenager, but the pair drifted apart after Jenny's son died and her marriage broke down.

The character is described as "a serious minx" who makes herself right at home at the Rovers when she comes to visit a thrilled Jenny.

"Daisy might seem like sweetness and light at first, but can be a maelstrom of minxy mischief when the mood takes her," said Corrie's executive producer Iain MacLeod.

"She revels in devilment and can be very self-serving, but she's fiercely loyal to those she cares about - although her loyalties can change in a heartbeat.

"Above all, she will bring chaos and conflict into Jenny's life, as her stepmum tries to make up for walking out on her some years ago."

Jordan, who has previously starred in Netflix movie Free Rein, added: "I am thrilled to be joining such a well-beloved and iconic show like Corrie during its 60th anniversary and especially whilst living in such uncertain times.

"Daisy has been a delight to play so far with her lack of filter and flirty nature but there's certainly more to her than meets the eye.

"I'm excited to flesh her out and see what lies ahead for hers and Jenny's relationship."

Jordan's first scenes are expected to air in the coming weeks.
