Paula Lane embarks on social media break for family time

Paula Lane is embarking on a social media break so she can spend more time with her kids.
The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress – who has son Arthur, three, and two-year-old daughter Penny, with her husband Tom Shaw – has vowed to stay away from Twitter for a short period of time, so she can have some quality time with the youngsters.
The ‘Kinky Boots’ star tweeted: "Taking a little mini break from my social media now as I’m officially on a holiday and desperate to give my children the undivided attention they deserve. See you next week! (sic)"
Since departing ‘Corrie’ – in which she portrayed Kylie Platt – in 2016, Paula has treaded the boards in play ‘The Bengal Lily’ and ‘Be More Martyn’, a production about Martyn Hett, one of the soap’s biggest supporters who was tragically killed in the Manchester Arena bombing last year.
In August, the star admitted she "doesn’t really think about" ‘Coronation Street’ anymore because there is "too much going on" in her life.
She said: "I’m moving into a completely new world. I don’t really think about it anymore, to be honest, there’s just too much going on.
"And that’s a lovely thing, don’t get me wrong.
"When I left, I really mourned that part, it was like a process I had to go through as an actress.
"I’d been playing her for so long and I loved my fellow cast members dearly and I genuinely mean that."
Last month, Paula admitted she was grateful to ‘Corrie’ for giving her the "building blocks" to "create her career".
She said: "Life is wonderful. Family is the most important thing to me. Corrie was a rollercoaster and it’s given me the building blocks to create my career.
"My last role as Rachel in #BeMoreMartyn was equally as special – a true life lesson in believing you can achieve anything if you work hard enough. I find it fascinating that both my roles post-Corrie ring out the message, ‘Just be who you want to be’."
