They play on-screen lesbian loves which has resulted in them becoming the very best of friends off-screen.

And Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson say that when it came to filming their last ever scenes together, the tears were very real.

Brooke and Sacha, both 19, have been involved in a lesbian storyline on Coronation Street since April 2010.

Last month, fans of the soap were treated to exclusive shots of the pair filming scenes of the lesbian wedding, which saw Sacha's character Sian Powers running away from her bride-to-be Sophie Webster, played by Brooke, on the big day after discovering that she had been unfaithful.

A fortnight later, Sacha filmed her last scenes after she announced she was leaving the soap.

And speaking to New! magazine this week, both girls said they found shooting her last moments on the cobbles to be very emotional.

Brooke said: 'We’ve been crying all the time. Normally, when one of us has to cry for a scene, we burst out laughing, but this time we both had tears streaming down our faces.

'I was actually on the verge of being sick. It was horrible.'

After being in an on-screen gay relationship for so long, Brooke said she was annoyed that the scriptwriters have made Sophie straight again.

She said: 'We’ve had so much support and recognition for this storyline, so for them to make her straight again would be the worst thing ever.

'What we’ve done has brought confidence to people. One girl told me that when her nan tells people she’s a lesbian, she says, "You know, like those two girls off Corrie." It’s so nice people can relate to us.'

But as Sacha bids farewell to the soap after two years, she said filming the wedding scenes has not made her desperate to get hitched herself.

She said: 'I like the idea of getting married. But when you get married in real life, you don’t have to do it again and again and again – hopefully.'
