Coronation Street fans convinced they recognise Toyahs tattooed solicitor Kim

Coronation Street fans are convinced they recognise Toyah Battersby's new and tattooed solicitor Kim Wallis.

Having been accused of murdering her husband Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo), Toyah (Georgia Taylor) has been forced to reach out to a new lawyer after Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) refused to help her.

Portrayed by Rebecca Hesketh-Smith, Kim made her debut appearance on the cobbles during Wednesday night's episode.

The character was met with skepticism upon her arrival at the police station and criticised by Toyah and her sister Leanne (Jane Danson) due to her tattoos.

Coronation Street viewers, meanwhile, thought she looked familiar.

Posting to Twitter, viewers of the ITV programme were convinced they had seen the lawyer somewhere before.

One fan wrote: "Where have I seen Toyah's solicitor before?"

A second said: "She looks familiar, the solicitor."

A third viewer added: "Where have I seen the solicitor with the tattoo before? She looks familiar."

Whilst not commenting on her familiarity, another replied: "Toyah's solicitor has film star looks."

Kim Wallis actress Rebecca Hesketh-Smith also got in on the fun.

To her own Twitter page, Rebecca wrote: "Tell ya Mum I’m in Corr-eh tonight! Tryna keep people out of prison. 8-9pm, tune in!"

It's no surprise that Coronation Street fans recognise Rebecca as she has starred in a number of British TV shows over the past few years.

Last year, Rebecca appeared in an episode of Casualty as a character named Millie Hayford.

She also starred alongside Gavin and Stacey actress Alison Steadman and former Corrie star Melissa Johns in the recent BBC drama Life.

In 2019, Rebecca starred in a single episode of the Sky fantasy series Britannia.

Kim is set to be tested over the coming weeks of Coronation Street.

With her client Toyah officially charged with Imran's murder at the end of Wednesday's show, it looks like she has a lot of work ahead.

Coronation Street airs on ITV.
