Sur will be an Adventure

CORONATION Street star Suranne Jones will appear in the new series of Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures this autumn.
The actress, 30, who played Karen McDonald, will be a guest star when the children's show returns with a third series on BBC1 and CBBC.

Her character is being kept under wraps, but producer Nikki Wilson reckons that signing up Suranne is an ideal piece of casting.

She said: "We conceived the character in a story meeting about 18 months ago and immediately named Suranne as perfect to play her - never imagining we'd actually get someone who's in so much demand.

"But as soon as she saw the script she said yes."

The story will also feature former Drop The Dead Donkey star Jeff Rawle.

Elisabeth Sladen, who plays Sarah Jane, will also be joined by Nigel Havers in series three.

A fourth series is being made.

CANADIAN actress Sarah Chalke, 32, who plays Dr Elliott Reid in US medical comedy Scrubs, and her lawyer fiancé Jamie Afifi are expecting their first child this winter.
