Coronation Street producers decide to make Vicky Myers - aka DS Swain - a regular member of the cast.

Vicky Myers has been made a permanent member of the Coronation Street cast, it has emerged.

The actress has played the part of DS Swain for the last three years, first appearing as part of the investigation into the murder of Seb (Harry Visinoni) and subsequently heading up the cases involving the rape of Amy (Elle Mulvaney) and the murderous antics of Stephen (Todd Boyce).

Swain is currently looking into the sudden disappearance of Lauren (Cait Fitton), a storyline that will herald her becoming a regular in Weatherfield.

"We're only just scratching the surface with Swain," Myers told The Sun.

"When I got the call that this was happening, it was very much that she was the itch that I needed to scratch. I want to know more about her.

"I did my homework initially a couple of years ago and I wanted to build this character that portrays and embodies everything about the North and about Weatherfield, almost in a matriarchal sense.

"Swain wants to continue going on in the career that she's chosen, but she's also a single working mum and there's the stresses and pressures that creates."

She added: "Relationship-wise, we know she has a teenage daughter. I'm not entirely sure if everybody knows this, but Swain is gay.

"I think she perhaps has seen somebody that's caught her eye but at the moment she's far too busy with focusing on this investigation, her career, being a single mum and juggling her home life as well with her teenage daughter."

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
