What else has Cath starred in?
Catherine Tyldesley is no stranger to our screens. She starred on the famous cobbles of Coronation Street for seven years as feisty barmaid Eva. Often seen in brawls and spats, Eva eventually left Weatherfield in 2018. However, she may return as Cath hinted at in an interview on Channel 4‘s Steph’s Packed Lunch last year.
She revealed a return isn’t out of the question when quizzed if she would make it back for the soap’s 60th anniversary. She said: “I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl, of course.
“At some point, you know, I’m really enjoying doing different projects and touch wood I’m really busy at the moment.
“But Corrie is so close to my heart, if the opportunity came up in the future, absolutely.”
It’s not just acting talent that Catherine has though, as the star also sings. In 2016 she released her debut studio solo album, titled Rise.
And fans of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing will remember Catherine Tyldesley taking to the dancefloor alongside professional dancer Johannes Redibe in 2019. The star made it to week six of the competition before she was eliminated.

When did Cath’s character Eva leave Coronation Street?
In 2018, Cath said goodbye to the Coronation Street set as character Eva Price left after seven years on the soap.
In her time on the cobbles, Eva was no stranger to drama.
From tackling love rival Maria into a fountain on her wedding day to handling romantic dramas with Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward) over the years, Catherine tackled some of the juiciest plots in the ITV soap.

What role does Catherine Tyldesley play in Viewpoint?
In this new crime drama, Catherine takes on a very different role from what we’ve seen her in before. She plays social media influencer Kate Tuckman in the ITV five-part series.
In an interview about the upcoming series, Cath described her character’s troubles: “She is so in love with [husband] Carl – she will do anything to keep hold of Carl and that is her life’s sole objective – to keep hold of this man that she is not just in love with, obsessed with.
“They have a wonderful relationship but she is fully aware that Carl has his infidelities. That is tearing her up inside. Especially when she tries to create this perfect world for her and her family.
“She’s a brilliant mum. Her childhood was very rocky and abusive – her father was a drunk. She had a really bad time growing up but for her to be a good mum and a good wife is everything.”
