Corrie cast members sign new contracts

Here's some cast contract news, which comes from The Sun.  As there's no official Coronation Street source for this tabloid snippet, as always take with a pinch of extra salt with your Curry Sauce.

The Sun reports this week that Kate Ford and Bev Callard (Tracy and Liz) have been given 'generous new contracts' to stay on the Street.  After Corrie favourites Alison King (Carla Connor and Craig Charles (Lloyd Mullaney), revealing their exit plans, The Sun says Corrie bosses are keen not to lose any more characters.

Mr Curry Sauce tells the paper: “With so many cast members quitting recently, the bosses have been panicking that others may follow in their footsteps. They can’t afford to lose any more favourites, so they have wasted no time handing out these new contracts, some of which are very generous."

Other characters reportedly staying on the street include Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs), Jimmi Harkishin (Dev Alahan) and Antony Cotton (Sean Tully).

Debbie Rush (Anna Windass) and Mikey North (Gary Windass) have reportedly been given new contracts. 

Newbies Tisha Merry (Steph Britton), Oliver Farnworth (Andy Carver) and Daniel Brocklebank (Billy Mayhew) will be on the soap for another year.  Daniel's contract has already been confirmed - read here.

It would be great to
See Peter Gunn ( Brian) get a contract renewal Brian and Ken were hilarious together and Ken needs someone to bounce off .

Yes, I would agree with that. Ken can't last forever and we will need someone intelligent to take his place.

I hope they've been equally generous to Sally Dynevor and Joe Duttine. They're the ones keeping Corrie afloat atm.

Completely agree about Brian. Even if he returned without Julie, Ken will need friends now and they were very good together. Amy vs the Frumpy Old Men dinner was interesting but didn't turn the comedy screws quite enough; that alone has great humor potential as an occasional event. That plus, assuming he doesn't take up sewing knickers or pulling pints, he'd be a working professional, a category the street is very short of (only Billy and Alya are educated and working in their fields). Please please please find a way to work him in and extend an offer.

I question the point of keeping Andy now it's been revealed he's not Gavin and he did commit identity and theft to boot.I puzzled that Kal a honest character was axed in favour of Andy whose scenes consist mainly of serving customers in the Bistro.
I just hope Callum sin't staying though!

Tracy a fan favourite? With whom, the criminal class?

Anthony Cotton seems to be forever in the paper for signing a new contract. I reaaaally do not see why he is kept on!- Micky
