Corrie fans stunned as Summer actress Harriet Bibby reveals real age

Coronation Street fans have been left stunned after Harriet Bibby, who plays Summer Spellman revealed her real age.

During a chat with Lorraine Kelly during yesterday morning’s (June 22) episode, Harriet was chatting about Summer’s recent diabetes diagnosis.

Billy (Daniel Brocklebank) and Todd (Gareth Pierce) were left concerned for Summer after suffering from tiredness, a loss of appetite and after collapsing a number of times, she was taken to hospital.

The teenager was then given a life changing diagnosis and was told she will now live with type 1 diabetes.

Harriet was speaking to Lorraine about joining the show and playing Summer, and then the presenter asked her how old she really is.

‘I’m 23’ Harriet replied, meaning she’s seven years older than her Corrie character.

Many viewers took to Twitter to share their shock at the discovery of Harriet’s age.

’23? I was thinking 13! #Lorraine’ one viewer wrote.

Harriet’s first scenes as Summer aired back in November after it was announced Matilda Freeman, who played Summer Spellman since 2017, would be leaving the role.
