Coronation Street star Channique Sterling-Brown branded 'inspiration' by co-star after 'overwhelmed' admission
Coronation Street star Channique Sterling-Brown has been branded an 'inspiration' by one of her co-stars after sharing a glimpse into her recent solo trip. The actress decided to take a little break as she made a "transparent" confession about how she's been feeling recently.
Channique, who joined the ITV soap last year as Dee-Dee Bailey, took to Instagram with a video featuring an array of pictures and videos from her mini break in Belgium. She shared how she swapped Manchester for Germany having been "extremely overwhelmed" and "out of touch" with herself.
"This is your sign to book that solo trip you’ve always talked about!" she started the caption of her post to her thousands of followers. "Had the most wonderful 72 hours in Belgium, reading, writing, training, praying I even tried beer and I’m basically a chocolatier now, she continued.

Felt I was being called to runaway and reground and I’m grateful to be able to do just that (praise God for Ryanair’s 30quid deals babes). It’s so important to reset and seek the things that bring you joy."
Channique then rounded off her post by saying: "Look after yourself, you can’t pour from an empty cup." Her Corrie co-star Sally Carman-Duttine, who is known for playing Abi Webster in the long-running soap, was quick to respond as she said: "You are an inspiration, lady!"
And her fans and followers were also quick to show their support. @nasimabeepoet said: "Love this so bloody much. definitely feel like i’m in need
