Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson Dress up as Playboy Bunnies
Coronation Street stars Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson made history as the street's first female gay couple.

And the gorgeous pair, who have dressed up as Playboy bunnies in a racy new photoshoot, are now insisting that they'll leave the soap if producers break up the characters.

Brooke declares: 'If they split us up, I’d leave. It’s made too much impact for them to break it up.

'It’s gone past the line. Me and Sach think we should win Best Partnership at the Soap Awards.'

The gal pals dressed up in blush pink satin Playboy bunny outfits, complete with bow ties, bunny ears and cotton tails for a provocative photoshoot and interview for Heat magazine.

Lounging against an ornate bar, the girls, both 18, giggle and whisper in each other's ears as they work the cameras.

Sacha has hinted that perhaps their close bond off camera is even becoming something more, adding: 'We just come as a pair now. We tell each other we love each other all the time. I think we’re really starting to become our characters.'

The girls have also revealed their celebrity 'girl crushes'.

Both agree that What's My Name star Rihanna is their favourite. They add: 'And Nicki Minaj. Definitely. We just love Nicki’s attitude.'

The also actresses say they feel a responsibility to fans who can relate to their onscreen relationship.

Brooke, who has played Sophie Webster on the long-running soap since she was just 11, says: 'It’s mad when you realise how many people have come out because of the storyline.

'So many people have come up to us and said, “Thank you. Without this, I wouldn’t have been able to come out to my parents or have people accept me.”

'There’s a pressure to make it 100 per cent believable. Because we’re not gay ourselves, it could be like watching someone in a film trying to put on an Irish accent and getting it totally wrong.'

Sacha, also 18, adds: 'You don’t realise it at the beginning, but when you’ve been doing it for a while – and especially now because of Twitter – you get so many people saying things about it.'

In the soap, the pair play former best friends who have fallen head over heels in love.

Christian teenager Sophie was seen succumbing to her feelings for Sian in an episode screened in April.

Vincent said at the time: 'Sacha and I were friends long before Corrie and I'm so glad it's her. We've been to drama school together and known each other since we were six or seven.

'We've talked about it, we're so close so we'll be all right. I've just told her as long as she sticks to her own side when it comes to the kissing scenes things will be fine. But no tongues.

'It will also let other teenage girls know they are not the only ones going through it if they are experiencing something similar.

'Often there aren't as many lesbian characters on TV compared to gay ones so it's a really positive thing for the soap.
