Catherine Tyldesley signs up to Channel 5 crime drama five months after quitting Coronation Street

The Daily Star Sunday reports the actress has landed a role in 15 Days after impressing show bosses.

The series opens with a horrific murder before going back in time – 15 days in fact – to show the lead up to this tragic event.

Catherine has spent the past three weeks filming in Cardiff alongside Tom Rhys Harries.

And insider told the paper: "Cath was offered big money to do reality TV shows, but she was determined to stick with acting."

She's hoping to land more high-profile roles as she tries to move on from her Corrie character Eva Price.

Weeks after leaving the famous cobbles Catherine sat down with The Sun Online and revealed how a dramatic 12-week fitness regime has changed her life.

The actress challenged herself to an intense workout with a personal trainer after leaving the soap as she turned to fitness for her mental health.

But she said she wasn't worried about going too far with her weight loss mission – which has seen her shrink from a size 22 when she younger to now a trim 10 – because she can't resist cake.

Instead she wanted to be fit for her  three-year-old son Alfie, who has her running around after him now she's left her full-time job on Coronation Street.

Catherine said: "I've been so busy since I left, but of course I miss it.

"It was a family. We've all kept in touch so I still see everyone.

"It's strange because I was there for seven years and I loved my time there. I'm really grateful for my time there."

But sometimes she feels like she never really left because she stays in touch with her close pals on set – and admits there are countless WhatsApp groups to keep her in the loop, but joked "it's not clean enough" to reveal.
