Selina Scott: Corrie on the good work, Karen.

Byline: Selina Scott

IN the battle of the soaps, Corrie's feisty Karen McDonald played by actress Suranne Jones has done as much as any of the cast to see off the challenge of EastEnders.

She has turned the recklessly upwardly-mobile Karen into a genuine character, alternately foul-mouthed and touchingly vulnerable, a toughie with oodles of sex appeal.

She's the only thing that stops Steve 'Mogadon' McDonald becoming a cure for insomnia. What is he going to do when she leaves the Street, as announced last week? This will cause the scriptwriters endless sleepless nights.

Suranne wants to move on to even meatier roles. Good for her. But don't let them kill you off, Suranne.

Even top actresses have 'resting' periods. Corrie could still be a nice little earner for years to come.

And unless he drowns in his pint, Steve will always have you back.
