CORONATION Street's Faye Windass star Ellie Leach has teased a major twist in her character's early menopause storyline.

Earlier this year, Faye was left devastated to be told she wouldn't be able to have any more children because she was going through the early menopause.

The news put extra pressure on Faye's relationship with Craig Tinker (Colson Smith), who started to obsessively monitor her nutrition in relation to her condition.

Faye previously gave birth to daughter Miley in 2015 when she was just a teen and agreed for her daughter to be raised by her paternal grandparents after failing to bond with the tot.

But speaking exclusively to The Sun Online at the Inside Soap Awards, Ellie admitted children could be in her characters future after all.

The 21-year-old Corrie star said: "I think probably knowing now that it's going to be difficult for her, I think she definitely will think about that more.

"Maybe in the future she will. There's other routes that she can go down, and look at; what do you do after when something like this happens to you?"

Ellie also spoke about how proud she was of the storyline and how more research was needed to find out how prevalent early menopause could be in women.

She said: "I think it's really difficult with a storyline that's not really spoke about as much because people who are health professionals are still doing their research.

"So it's hard to build up from that research when there's not really that much about it.

"I'm hoping that we've we've been able to get it right. I hope that we haven't offended anyone in whatever we've done, but I think it's just really hard because it's not really spoken about.

"Even the menopause in general, it's not. Especially realising how young you can have it. I didn't realise like how young you could actually go through the early menopause.

"So yeah, it's really opened my eyes into into all of the early menopause and the menopause world."
