Brooke Vincent, who plays lesbian character Sophie Webster in UK television soap Coronation Street, says Rihanna is her secret girl crush.

The lesbian character recently became single after the storyline on her marriage to another girl ended in disaster. However, Vincent told The Sun newspaper, she thinks the bisexual pop sensation, Rihanna, would be the perfect partner for her character.

‘Sophie’s single and ready to mingle,’ Vincent told The Sun. ‘I’d have Rihanna as her dream girlfriend.’

The Sun reports a storyline involving Webster and a male character is to feature the soap, but Vincent has insisted this will not change her character’s sexuality.

‘I don’t want to be straight,’ she said. ‘And I don’t think the producers want her to be straight either.

‘Being a lesbian has made so much of an impact on her, and it’s not a phase for most people.’

In real life, Vincent is dating footballer, Josh McEachran, who plays for Chelsea FC.

The Sun recently reported on Rihanna coming out as bisexual and her arrogant boast that she can ‘turn straight women bisexual’.

Coronation Street is the UK’s longest running soap opera. It first aired on ITV in December 1960. Brooke Vincent took on the role of Sophie Webster in 2004.
