Coronation Street's vampy resident lesbian is well known for her controversial relationship with best friend Sian Powers.

But while Sophie Webster's character may be pure fictional, actress Brooke Vincent has admitted to having some real life girl crushes.

'I have a girl crush on Rihanna. I fancy her because she is successful and strong,' confessed Brooke in an interview with The Sun.

The 20-year-old ITV star also revealed that she would love to look like Sharon Osbourne when she is older.

'I might have a facelift one day. I want to look like Sharon Osbourne- all tight and tucked,' she said.

She also admires the looks of her on-screen sister Rosie (played by Helen Flanagan) and hits out at those who criticised Helen's recent revealing bikini Twitter photos.

Brooke insists that all girls take photos of themselves and that Helen looks 'amazing' so has all the more reason to flaunt her figure.

Girl crushes aside, Brooke is in a happy relationship with Chelsea footballer Josh McEachran.

The Bury-born star and 19-year-old Josh have been dating for sixteen months and are blissfully happy together, they even recently spent a romantic holiday lapping up the sun in Dubai.

Rumours that the pair are engaged have been quickly quashed by Brooke who is actually set to move in with co-star Michelle Keegan, who plays Tina in the hit soap.

Brooke provided a much-needed shoulder to cry on for her best friend after her split with The Wanted singer Max George.

This week will see Brooke caught up in a dramatic car crash scene on Coronation Street which leaves her near-dead after a drug-fuelled argument with bad boy co-star Ryan Connor.
