She told Hello! magazine: “We’d love for Alfie to have a little brother or sister.

“I once said I’d like four but I think we will settle at two.”

The former Corrie star has gone onto an array of projects since her role on the popular soap.

Catherine said at the time: “I’m super excited about my first play going into production.

“I wrote ‘The Ceremony’ during lockdown. I’ve managed to assemble my dream cast along with one of my all-time favourite directors, the brilliant Lee Salisbury.

“Writing has always been close to my heart and to finally see my words brought to life by such incredible talent, is nothing short of a dream come true.”
