If you’re a hardcore fan of Coronation Street, you may remember Steve’s wife, Vicky who was played by Helen Warburton in 1990 and Chloe Newsome from 1991 to 1998.

Known as one of the wealthier residents of the street, she inherited £240,000 when her parents Tim and Sandra died in a car crash.

Upon turning 18, she dropped out of school and used her inheritance to buy into Steve’s t-shirt printing company, and the pair eventually fell in love. Against many people’s wishes, Vicky and Steve tied the knot, but the marriage lasted for just under a year.

In 1999, Vicky fled the street with her new husband Robert and she decided to open a new bar called ‘Vicky’s’ in Brighton.

So what Chloe Newsome been doing since leaving the street?

Soon after her Coronation Street departure, Newsome starred in a handful of Shakespeare plays which included the likes of Twelfth Night, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream; however, in 2005, she decided to put her acting career on hold to try her hand at a variety of office jobs.
