Corries Georgia Taylor hints at lengthy prison stint for Toyah as trial looms

Coronation Street's Toyah Habeeb could be facing a lengthy prison stint, as actress Georgia Taylor has hinted she might be found guilty of Imran's murder.

Toyah was driving the car when it crashed into a wall, killing her husband after he suffered a cardiac arrest dragging her from the wreckage.

Since then, Toyah has been released on bail pending her murder trial, rekindling her former romance with Spider Nugent on the cobbles and getting involved in various environmental protests after being sacked from her job at Underworld.

But she's always known she'll have to face her day in court, and explained that Toyah crashed the car on purpose in a huge twist.

Speaking about a potential prison stint for her character, Georgia told Daily Star and other press: "I’ve said all along I really want a prison storyline because I just think it looks like so much fun.

"Now the thing is, it could go one of two ways. Because Toyah’s got this counselling background, she could become someone that the fellow inmates come to and she’s very supportive of them, or she could be bullied massively.

"I can see her getting bullied – she’d need to find some of that Battersby spirit to get through time in prison, I would say. If that were to happen, I think the writers could feasibly go either way with it."

Georgia also hinted that it isn't the end of Toyah's fostering hopes if the judge's gavel swings the other way.

She explained: "Fostering is definitely an option for her and I love that side of her. The argument against that is I’ve always said we have a responsibility in reflecting all aspects of society – to show a childless woman and to show that a childless woman can be happy.

That’s something I feel quite strongly about myself. So it might be that she finds fulfilment and joy in something else.

"Having said that she is naturally very maternal and caring so I understand why her fostering or adopting a child seems like the obvious fit."

Speaking of her dream storyline for Toyah, Georgia spilled: "Personally I want her to get a load of animals, I want to be filming with cats, dogs, rabbits, a pony, everything. She should keep pigs! That’s what I’d like to happen."

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8pm on ITV.
