Corrie Fiz star opens up on sweet Vera tribute as wedding descends into chaos

Coronation Street star Jennie McApline has revealed there's a sweet nod to soap legend Vera Duckworth on Fiz Stape's wedding day to Phill Whittaker (Jamie Kenna).

Things don't go to plan on the lead up to the big day for the husband and wife to be.

From Hope's bridesmaid dress getting covered in wine to Phill's ex Camila (Louise Marwood) turning up and the registrar cancelling on the morning of the ceremony, Fiz is wondered if her marriage to Phill is doomed before they even walk down the aisle.

To makes even more difficult for the blushing bride, Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) tells Fiz exactly how he feels about her on the eve of the wedding.

After confessing his love to his ex, Tyrone presents Fiz with a pair of Vera's (Elizabeth Dawn) vintage earrings.

Opening up about the sweet gesture, actress Jennie told Daily Star and other press: "There's two nods to the past.

"There's the earrings and what I'm wearing.

"He gives her these earrings and we remember Vera for her kind of bright, big, colourful earrings but these are not one of those.

"These are gorgeous little pearly earring that Jack gave her once for an anniversary.

Asked how Fiz reacts to Tyrone's thoughtful gift, the soap star joked: "She thinks it's gorgeous and wonders why he didn't give them to her years ago instead of running off with Alina."

Jennie went on to reveal about filming Fiz's wedding scenes as the last time her character tied the knot it was to her murderer ex John Stape in prison.

She said: "I'm not about all the fuss and messing about. In real life I just went off and eloped and got married with just me and my husband.

"The best thing was it was the first big thing the crew had been able to do since the pandemic on location.

"For the crew to be more creative again was great and and I enjoyed getting the wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses."

As Tyrone puts doubt in Fiz's head before her wedding, will she pick to live happily ever after with Phill or run back into Tyrone's arms?

"I'm ready for her to make a choice," Jennie said.

Fans will have to wait to see if Fiz ends up marries Phill.
