Spot the Corrie prop - May 24th 2019

Congratulations this week go to Michael Adams who was the only person to guess that last week's beautiful boots belong to the former mysterious manipulator of the Streetcars switch, Brenda. It's a great shame that she's packed up her Dunhills and her Mellow Bird's and cleared off to GoLucky, I hope it's not a permanent move.Well done Michael!

For this week's Coronation Street prop puzzle all you have to do is tell us whereabouts on the Coronation Street set you would find this classic camera.

Andrew Hall passes away, age 65


Sad news in today is that actor Andrew Hall has died, age 65. 

He was the actor who played Audrey's fella Marc Selby, the cross-dresser who was also known as Marcia in Coronation Street in 2011.

A statement on Twitter from his management group InterTalent Rights said: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our client and friend Andrew Hall."

Andrew was perhaps best known for his role as Russell Parkinson in Butterflies between 1978 and 1983. On the show, he played the son of Wendy Craig and Geoffrey Palmer and the brother of Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst.


His son Josh Hall said: "Andrew began his acting career playing the character of Russell in the BBC series Butterflies. He then worked extensively as an actor on both stage and screen including a period at the RSC and a run as Bill in the West End production of Mamma Mia! Later, he worked as a director and producer, enjoying successes with productions including Edward Albee's Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? at the Trafalgar, and Kindertransport, which toured the UK. Most recently he appeared as The Gentleman in the SyFy series Blood Drive. He is survived by his wife Abigail, his mother Mabel, his children Kate and Josh, and his grandchildren Jasper and Maggie."
