Best known for her role as Sinead Tinker in Coronation Street. But Katie McGlynn had everyone talking on Wednesday evening – and it had nothing to do with the drama that usually unfolds in Weatherfield.

In fact it was all in response to a rather bizarre post on the star’s Twitter and Instagram pages…

The 22-year-old actress announced that she was pregnant with Lee Bennett’s baby. Lee is Sinead’s gay best friend.

Had a kooky time celebrating @_leebennett birthday on sather @abodehotelsuk 🎉#birthdayboy

A post shared by Katie McGlynn (@katiexmcglynn) on

The Instagram post read: “So happy & proud to announce that me and my GBF @_leebennett have decided to have a baby together”.

She also wrote on Twitter: “So excited to share the news that me and Lee Bennett are having a babrooon together. #Gayby”.

Katies’s gay best friend Lee added further fuel to the fire when he shared the post. He added: “Can we call it Jerry babe, I really like that name”. With 102,000 followers on Instagram, Katie was quickly inundated with posts congratulating her on the news and fans sharing their excitement for the actress and her best friend.

However, all pregnancy related posts were quickly deleted soon after they were posted, leaving fans to speculate that Katie’s account had been hacked.

Fans continued to speculate as they waited for an official comment. It was not until this morning (6 July) that Katie finally clarified what was going on.

Katie took to Twitter, to put fans minds at rest and dispel the rumours. She said: “So when @_LeeBennett steals your phone & the whole of the UK think your pregs”.

Katie’s family, friends and fans all saw the announcement and many believed it. Did her best friend take it too far? Have your say in the comments below or join in the conversation on our Facebook page!
