Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie dropped into Meadowhall to meet her fans.

The actress was promoting the shopping centre’s Make My Year campaign, which encourages shoppers to enter a competition to win a variety of prizes.

Samia, who plays Maria in the popular soap opera, has also took part in ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

Speaking about the competition, she said: “There’s no reason not to enter, because it’s free and you might be in with a chance of winning something to make your life better or that could change your life – there’s a car up for grabs. But if I win, I’ll have to give it back!”

Prizes on offer include a holiday to Thailand, a Fiat 500 and driving lessons.

There are also prizes which last a year, including a personal stylist for a year, and a new pair of shoes and a handbag every month and free dining for a year.

Samia, who is dating her Dancing on Ice skating partner Sylvain Longchambon, said her year was made by competing in the popular show.

She said: “It was something I never thought I would do or be able to do.

“It was easily the hardest thing I’ve ever done but it was brilliant.

She added: “In October I was one of those people who just hangs on to the sides.

“I looked like Bambi on ice.”

Shoppers can enter the Make my Year competition until May 17.
