Michelle Collins has played iconic roles in the two most watched soap operas on British television. In the 1990s she played the backstabbing blonde, Cindy Beale, in EastEnders, and in 2011 she joined the cast of Coronation Street and now plays much-loved Rovers Return landlady, Stella Price. But what about the rest? Much of Michelle's remarkable story has never been told before. From growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in North London with her sister and their young single mother to Michelle's quest for success as she fought her way through some difficult and painful times.
