The last word on Andrew Sachs joining Corrie

This week The Mirror said that Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs would be joining Coronation Street. And they might be right, there's even been a news item on the official Corrie site.

However, it's not the first time this story has done the rounds in the press as Andrew Sachs first popped up in The Express saying he'd love to join Corrie as Norris' brother way back in May 2007. I even blogged the story back then for Corrieblog.

However, before Corrie fans get too excited about Andrew turning up on the cobbles, or indeed Norris having a brother, Ian Wylie's blog at the MEN has a direct line to the Corrie press office and the official line is: “It’s very early days," and it’s important to stress that nothing has been finalised in terms of his possible Corrie role...

...but wouldn't it be great?

"very early days" probably means they are in fact negotiating with his agent! Yay!

I do hope so. The thought of Norris having a brother is great fun!
