Cathy is caught in a trolling nightmare after she posted a comment online about Steve McDonald's fundraising after a row with his partner Tracy Barlow.

Things have spiraled with her neighbours since, and during an appearance on today's Lorraine, Melanie said things will "turn really nasty" for Cathy.

Speaking via video link, she told guest host Cat Deeley: "It’s a bit of a disaster for poor Cathy, she never meant to cause this much of a furore.

"It’s one of those things of basically don’t drink and tweet. We’ve all been there.

"Things just turn really nasty and it’s not a good situation for her."

Asked if it's enough to make her leave Weatherfield, Melanie replied: "She leaves the Kabin… Brian and Cathy obviously bought the Kabin but the business is in trouble because everyone has boycotted it.

"Things get quite dark quite quickly. She feels that she wants to protect the people she loves so she decides to move out."

She continued: "It’s just how far she goes, that’s the big question.

"She might not go too far – and I’ve signed another contract for another year, which is brilliant. We’ll see how it plays out.

"It’s quite a serious situation and the community at Coronation Street has obviously got a tight-knit community, and they all band together to really boycott the Kabin because of what’s happened. It gets really nasty."
