Byline: Simon Boyle reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

SPIRITED Coronation Street star Michelle Collins has revealed that she seriously considered calling time on the soap - until a psychic changed her mind.

The actress, who plays Rovers Return landlady Stella Price, consults a spiritual life coach and reckons she has psychic abilities of her own.

She credited her life coach Simon and psychic Cara with giving her the confidence to carry on with Corrie despite criticisms from fans over her Northern accent.

Michelle, who joined the ITV soap last year, said: "I was nervous to be joining Corrie but consulted a dialect coach to get the accent right. So when I was slated, I seriously considered walking away.

"But Cara and Simon gave me the confidence to stay, to defy my critics and prove myself."

When asked if she had ever seen a ghost herself, Michelle, 51, replied: "Yes, when I was 15. I saw my best friend's spirit.

"She was 16 when she suddenly died of a heart attack on a school trip.

"I wasn't scared. I've always felt that she has been with me throughout my life, guiding me."

Speaking to Spirit & Destiny magazine, the former EastEnders regular also revealed she has had flashbacks to a previous life.

She said: "I've been regressed twice. I was a young girl, living in London in Victorian times and my baby had died."

Michelle added: "The fear has gone from my life. My aura is shiny and bright."

Her comments come just weeks after co-star William Roache, Corrie's Ken Barlow, predicted the world would "change dramatically" on December 12.

Bill, 80, said: "The Earth will continue to cleanse itself while material and negative things will collapse."
