Rhea Bailey Coronation Street Character: Rhea Bailey is a British actress who has appeared in a number of films. She is the younger sister of singer Corinne Bailey Rae, who is also a musician. Her father is of Kittitian descent, while her mother is of English descent. For her performances as PC Mel Ryder in The Bill from 2008 to 2010, and as Caz Hammond in Coronation Street from 2015 to 2016, she is most recognized.
The actress’s other television appearances include Chloe Simms on the soap opera Crossroads, ex-student Yasmin Deardon in the BBC school drama Waterloo Road, Jade in the Torchwood episode “Out of Time,” Jazz in the film Credo (also known as The Devil”s Curse), and DC Lisa Goodall on the ITV series Blue Murder.
Rhea Bailey, a Coronation Street actress, is expecting her first child with her fiancé, The Overtones musician Darren Everest, according to reports.
“We recognise that we are really fortunate,” Everest told Hello! magazine.
With the new house, the engagement, and the impending birth of our child, we consider ourselves quite fortunate.” Their intention is to have the baby at home, following in the footsteps of Bailey’s sister, musician Corinne Bailey Rae, who had a successful home birth in 2012.
“My sister had two extremely successful home deliveries with an independent midwife, and she had really lovely experiences,” added Bailey, who starred as Caz Hammond in the ITV serial.
The reason I wanted to have a similar experience was that statistically, having your kid at home is really safer.
“It can typically shorten the length of time you’re in labour as well, which was really appealing to me, plus Darren gets to be with me the entire time,” says the mother of two.
Corrine has been encouraging and supporting me through this process, and we’re working with the same independent midwife team as before.
The fact that our children will be of similar ages excites us; it would be great to have cousins as playmates. When Bailey’s former Coronation Street co-star Kym Marsh hosted a birthday party for Bailey, the two were engaged in March, shortly after moving into their first house together. Everest explained: “We can all have this image of perfection when we want it to be at sunset, on a lake, etc.”
We were at our new house with the dog, and it was the perfect moment at the beginning of a new trip.” “There was a lovely huge red ribbon wrapped around the entire home,” Bailey continued.
“Darren presented me with a large arrangement of flowers, as well as two champagne flutes that had been engraved with our names and the date of our wedding.”
I opened the champagne and he immediately started talking about our relationship, which caused him to tremble! I was perplexed until he got down on one knee in front of me.
“I just burst into tears – we were both struck with emotion at the same time.”
