Coronation Street fans were bowled over when they thought they saw Michelle Keegan’s ghost accosting young Summer in Roy’s Rolls  The actress, Saira Choudry, has appeared in the soap once before as the journalist Naila, who arrives to give some good new to Summer and her foster dad, Billy, about Summer winning an award  But fans of the show were desperate to find out who she is after thinking her the doppelganger for the soap’s former character Tina, who sadly fell off a roof after a fling with Peter Barlow  For actress Saira Choudhry is one of the stars of Channel 4 cop show No Offence, and has also starred in Hollyoaks in her varied career  Saira plays the role of tough rookie cop PC Tegan Thompson on Channel 4’s hit police drama No Offence, so it’s a rather different role to the one we see her on screen in Corrie in  She’s mainly seen with her hair tucked up in her officer’s hat in No Offence, while in Corrie she gets to swish her long brunette tresses, while keeping her press badge firmly round her neck at all times  Fans of Saira will be pleased to hear she has recently filmed the third series of No Offence in and around Manchester earlier this year, with the drama set to return to Channel 4 in the Autumn  Soap fans may also know her for her role as Anita in Hollyoaks.  And she’s not only in demand for her acting talents – as Saira is also helping to develop the next generation too with her own acting academy  Saira runs TV Talent, a drama and dance school for children aged from three to 18 in Manchester, to pass on her skills to up and coming stars   Meanwhile Corrie is full of Michelle Keegan lookalikes at the moment. Read More Soap blunders  For actress Mollie Winnard, who plays Kayla Clifton, has also drawn comparisons to Keegs since she joined the soap  One thing that the viewers may not be aware of, however, is that Naila broke the journalistic code when she went to find Summer, with Billy having no idea about the story  The IPSO Code of Practice states journalists can not approach children without permission from the parents, so hopefully Billy was just being forgetful   Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
