Coronation Street: a bunch of Muppets

I missed Flaming Nora’s blog post last week about the Warburton’s Christmas advert, and I saw the ad for the first time last night. I’m trying to cut down on bread so I hope it’s the first and last time I see it, but it was great to know some of Hollywood’s biggest stuffed stars are Corrie fans.

It also got me wondering what Corrie would look like if the characters were replaced with muppets. In some cases, I’m sure you’ll agree, we wouldn’t know the difference...

Love it! The only problem with Guy Smiley is that Roy isn't really outgoing nor is his "smiley" :) Kevin might be more like Sam, being much more gruff and moody than Ken, I suppose. Personality wise, even Norris is closer to Sam :) IT's fun to do this. My husband and I have done this comparing Corrie characters to other popular shows in the past

Thanks, yes I based most of them mainly on the physical similarities. Hope nobody takes offence! :)

This provided my Monday morning chuckle - many thanks! Beth Tinker and Miss Piggy are a perfect pairing, for sure!

I had Beaker with Ches but I couldn't find a suitable photo!

Liz's zigzag necklace always reminded me of Kermit's collar, actually.

Animal - Kirk
Fozzie the Bear - Alf Roberts/Fred Elliot?
Steve reminds me of Rowlf more than Fiz, as does Raquel with Janice.

Sarah as Big Bird,with that fuzzy yellow coat!

I think Sarah had a fight with Big Bird for that fuzzy yellow coat and unfortunately Big Bird lost - or at least the coat did.
