Are you in a routine so when the baby sleeps, you can learn your lines? There have been a few of us who have had babies and it’s been nice to share that. I did a Lorraine Kelly interview – a live link – and he was watching at home and he knew it was me when he heard my voice.
Yeah, I don’t do any work until he goes down to bed. Their names are all similar too – you’ve got Albert, who is Jennie Mc Alpine’s son, Arthur who is mine and Artie, who is Cath Tyldesley’s. But the great thing now is that you’ve got Face Time so, even if I’m at work, I can call home and he knows me.
She told fans on Twitter that she was experiencing a "whole host of emotions" as she had her make-up done for the last time.
The 30-year-old then shared a photo of herself surrounded by her onscreen family, which she captioned: "Platts rule! #wearefamily."Paula also made sure to acknowledge Jack P Shepherd, who plays her onscreen husband David Platt.
It’s fabulous – your whole life changes in an instant. Everyone’s babies are so different; I’m frequently thinking, “I’m so lucky” when people tell me their children aren’t sleeping.
I’m not going to rub it in but, for me at the minute, it’s really good!
He goes on this vendetta over the course of a week against all the Platts and everyone connected with them. You always feel very safe and content on the set and you can pretty much try anything and you feel open to a performance. We’re so busy that, when we go home at night, family time is family time. But I do still get recognised – even though it’s nice to get away with it sometimes. My contract is up in May, so I have a little while longer – and we’ll see after that.What would you like to see happen to Callum in the live shows? Although Callum’s just one driving force and there’s more of us, he’s destroying the family. The first kissing scene Jack and I ever had, we were like, “Hi, nice to meet you.” Then we were stood by a jukebox and had to kiss for five minutes. I like to run and I live in a great place to be able to do that without being pestered. I have quite intense scenes, so I’m used to standing there staring at someone and waiting for that hand to go down to say that you are live. I’ve got a great support network at home and at work.But the fact they’ve got the confidence in us to carry the story is very flattering. Were you asked if you wanted to do the live episode? I’d just come back from having my baby and they were like, “This is what we’re doing.”How have you coped with returning to work and leaving your son, Arthur? I’ve not had sleepless nights; I’ve been very lucky. Motherhood is a whole new ball game but I love the chaos.
