Corrie Secrets Revealed: Behind the scenes at the Bistro


Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert Preston in Coronation Street, is interviewed in this week's Inside Soap magazine and he reveals some smashing secrets from behind the scenes at the Bistro.

He says: "I can tell you there's a spelling mistake in one of the food mantras on the wall in there. Let's see if any of your readers can spot it!  There's also a reservations book and sometimes other actors will sabotage the page that you need to open in a scene - and let's just say it often involves unsavoury drawings or a word that doesn't belong in Coronation Street!"

Tristan also says he loves working with Kym Marsh (Michelle), that he's a big tennis and rugby fan and in real life he has three children.

Asked who he'd swap places with on the set of Corrie, he says Connor McIntyre, who plays Pat Phelan. "The way that Connor manages to keep you enagaged with Pat, even though the character has done some unspeakable things, is testatment to Connor," he says.

Simon Gregson: "I don't want Steve to marry again"



Could it be wedding number eight for Steve McDonald in Coronation Street?  Well, he's due to propose to Leanne in next week's Corrie! You can read more on that here.

Eight, you say?

Yes! Have a look at them all here.

Simon Gregson, who plays Steve, is interviewed this week about the shock proposal.

Has this marriage idea come to Steve out of the blue?
“He and Leanne have been having a laugh together lately and they’re getting on really well, so he starts thinking about it and kind of asks himself, ‘Why not?’ They make a good team. They’re trying the controlled crying technique to get Oliver to sleep at night. Leanne’s a bit too soft at first and Steve’s the hard one, but then it’s the other way round.”

How does Steve justify the idea of marriage to Leanne?
“He says they get on, they have a child together and they make a good team, so why don’t they go for it? It’s hardly the most romantic proposal. To be honest, there’s not a lot of sexual chemistry between Steve and Leanne. It obviously worked once, but it’s not really there now, which is going to make a marriage tricky.”

What does Leanne say to the proposal?
“She’s absolutely stunned by the idea. She really hasn’t been expecting it. You’ll have to wait to see whether she accepts.”

What about Michelle?
“It comes as a bit of a shock at first, but she’s then OK with it. She’s still fuming with Steve, but she’s happy with Robert Preston.”

How is this storyline likely to pan out?
“It will go quite well purely because Jane Danson [who plays Leanne] and I just enjoy working with each other so much. I think this comes across in the scenes, so there’s a lot of scope in the future. It’s about time Steve had some happiness. Maybe this could be it!”

Do you fancy another screen wedding?
“No! They’re no fun to film. There are just too many people involved in a small space and they take days. So, no, I’d prefer Steve not to marry again. Plus, they always film my screen weddings in the winter!”
