She might only be 18, but Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has already done very well for herself, judging by pictures of her shopping for a new car today.

The teenager looked delighted as she sat in the exclusive Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing car, which retails for around 112,000.

Smiling and laughing with the car salesman, Brooke found the vehicle was slightly too big for her little legs as she struggled to reach the pedals.

The soap star was looking for a new car to upgrade her Peugeot and has obviously decided a Mercedes is the way forward.

However, after enjoying the comforts of the SLS AMG, Brooke decided to try out something a little more her speed, opting for the CLC200 BlueEFFICIENCY Sport, retailing, at used car price, at a more reasonable 14,990.

The actress, who plays Sophie Webster in the ITV soap, was accompanied by two salespeople as she took the sleek car out for a spin in Manchester.

But it seems Brooke left the car centre without purchasing a vehicle after failing to make her mind up about which one to go for.

Brooke is gearing up for the British Soap Awards this weekend, as they take place in Manchester for the first time.

Talking about the ceremony, Brooke said: “We’re all really excited at Coronation Street about the awards taking place in Manchester.

“But when it comes to walking out on the red carpet, it doesn’t really feel like me, it’s like a performance – I’m just concentrating ongetting down the carpet!”

It remains to be seen whether Brooke will arrive at Saturday”s event solo or if she will bring rumoured new man, Manchester City footballer Reece Wabara.

The pair looked very cosy as they left a Nando”s restaurant in Manchester earlier this week after having lunch together, fuelling rumours they are an item.

However, in an interview with Reveal magazine this week, Brooke said she was single and finds it difficult to meet men because of her Corrie alter-ego being a lesbian.

She said: “Please tell the fellas I”m not gay. I don”t have a boyfriend at the moment, but I”m definitely straight.

“I”m single with no special fella in my life right now because I feel I”m in a good place with my acting and just concentrating on my role in Corrie. It”s regular work and it”s good for me.

“If a boyfriend comes along, so be it. The best advice my mum has ever given me is to go with your heart.”
