Samia also took time out of her hectic filming schedule to answer other questions from her followers.

Sitting in her Corrie dressing room, Samia said: “Afternoon guys! I’m on a little break from filming for a while, so if anyone wants to ask me anything, I’ve got a bit of time. So ask away and I’ll try and answer!”

Reminiscing about the good times she’s had with the cast and crew of the ITV soap, Samia said it was impossible to choose a favourite moment from her time on set.
