Who did Zoe Henry play in Coronation Street?

Zoe, 48, once played Geoffrey David 'Spider' Nugent’s vegan girlfriend Log Thwaite back in 1998.

She was hated by Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) who had her sights set on Emily Bishop's eco-warrior nephew.

Toyah wanted to get rid of vegan Log and managed to convince her to eat a bacon sandwich, before making sure that Spider (Martin Hancock) caught her.

He immediately dumped Log for not being committed to the vegan cause and Log left the soap after six episodes.

In 2007, Zoe also played Casey Carswell in Corrie who befriended Claire Peacock (Julia Haworth) but ended up having an affair with Ashley (Steven Arnold).
