Coronation Street’s Katie McGlynn denies row with Love Island’s Maura Higgins

Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn denies having a blazing row with Love Island’s Maura Higgins, after the TV Choice Awards.

The actress – who plays Sinead Tinker in the soap – was pictured looking very animated during a heated chat with the ITV2 star, following the swanky bash at London’s Hilton hotel.

The cobbles star, 26, was spotted gesturing wildly at the 28-year-old ring girl as they congregated in the lobby of the hotel.

Curtis Pritchard and Chris Taylor tried to calm the situation down, before things spilled out onto the streets outside, where the dancer comforted his girlfriend with a kiss.

It has not been revealed what their chat was about, with Katie and Maura seen holding hands soon after.

Both have stayed quiet about the snaps on social media, but the dating show favourite didn’t seem too bothered about the whole thing.


In fact, she later ignored the ‘spat’ and gave fans a glimpse into her relationship with her beau – branding him ‘cute’.

Taking to Instagram during their cab journey home, she revealed he was removing the pins from her hair, so she could go straight to sleep when they got home.

‘What are you doing Curtis? Curtis is actually taking out my hair right now,’ she told her fans.

‘Cause it’s going to save me time when I get home, how cute is he?’


It was an emotional night for Katie, who lifted the lid on her upcoming exit from Coronation Street.

She will be leaving the show after seven years on the cobbles, with her character Sinead Tinker losing her battle with cervical cancer.

And, discussing her final scenes, she admitted to making a very quick departure from set to make sure she didn’t cry.


‘I filmed it [Sinead’s death scenes] on a Sunday when not many people was in, which was fine because I made a swift exit,’ she told the Daily Mail.

‘People came out in the side crying and saying “we’ll miss you”.

‘I said “I’m gonna have to go so I won’t cry!”‘

We’ve already got the tissues ready.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Katie and Maura for a comment.
