I'm late to the party on this one. Following the meteoric rise of Coronation Street background artist Adam Blease, or 'Dirk' - into soap legend, Corrie fans won the internet yesterday with a hilarious series of character comparisons.
|Dirk not Kirk|
Adam's appearance in the Rovers last week prompted some viewers to ask if a lookalike had been hired to take the place of Andy Whyment who plays Kirk. That was not the case but it didn't stop fans and cast alike sharing other possible doppelgangers who could be mistaken for our favourite Weatherfield regulars. Twitter went crazy with the tag #DirkNotKirk.
Here are a few of the most hilarious, and ridiculous comparisons:
|Roy Cropper not Space Hopper|
|Dirk not Duck|
|Corrie not Lorry|
|Jenny not Benny|
|Rita not Sunita|
|Fiz not Liz|
|Schmeichel not Gails Dead Husband Michael|
And my own contribution:
|Eccles not Eccles|
Corrie fans are the best.
