‘I’d love her to be an iconic bad girl’: Corrie newcomer Charlotte Jordan says her ‘dangerous’ character Daisy Midgeley has the potential to be as wicked as Tracy Barlow

She has recently joined the cast of the ITV soap as Jenny Connor’s manipulative step-daughter Daisy Midgeley.

And Coronation Street newcomer Charlotte Jordan has told how she thinks her character has the potential to be as wicked as Tracy Barlow, played by Kate Ford.

Speaking in a new interview, the actress, 25, discussed the development of her character, stating: ‘I’d love her to be an iconic bad girl’, while noting she has a ‘dangerous’ side to her.

Since first arriving on the cobbles back in October last year, viewers have seen Daisy’s hatred of  jailbird Johnny Connor grow, while she recently manipulated Sean Tully into handing over a share of his make-up profits. 

And Charlotte told how her alter ego may only get worse as she’ll do whatever it takes to get her own way, making her ‘quite dangerous’.

She told The Mirror: ‘I’d love her to be an iconic bad girl, why not? I don’t know what the long-term plans are, but she’s somebody who will do whatever needs to be done to protect herself. That makes her quite dangerous, so I actually think potentially she could be as bad as Tracy Barlow.

‘It’s great to come in and cause some mischief and raise eyebrows. People like that are much more fun to play. I tend not to play nice characters. I don’t know what that says about me. Maybe it’s my face, or maybe it’s that I revel in playing characters that are so different to me.’

Though Daisy appears intent on stirring up trouble on the street, she’ll have a long-way to go to match Tracey’s dastardly deeds over the years.

Despite the man-eater having mellowed in recent years, her reputation is well known as she’s lied and cheated throughout her time on the cobbles.

Huge storylines have seen the character drug and ‘sleep with’ Roy Cropper and pretend she was pregnant with his child, only for the baby (Amy) to be Steve McDonald’s.

She also ruined Steve’s marriage to Karen as she barged into the wedding to announce she’d slept with him and that he was the father of her child.

Most notoriously, she ended up in jail after plotting the murder of her then-boyfriend Charlie Stubbs after learning he’d had an affair with hairdresser Maria Sutherland. 

And judging my Charlotte’s comments, her character Daisy is already showing some similarities to Tracy.

She said: ‘She’ll step over everyone else to get where she needs to get. She’s out for herself and has questionable morals. But she is loyal to those she loves.’

She added that Daisy is a ‘work in progress as a human’, adding that in real life she could ‘never do or say’ the things her character does. 

Despite her character looking set to go down a dark path, Charlotte’s boyfriend Paul’s family were delighted she bagged a role in the soap as they are ‘colossal Corrie fans’.

She remarked that they were keen for her to get them autographs from their favourites stars including Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald) and Roy Cropper (David Nielson), but she’s found it difficult due to Covid restrictions.
