Nigel Havers joins Coronation Street

For ladies of a certain age (that's me included, then) news that Nigel Havers is joining Coronation Street will fair put a smile on their faces.

The official Corrie site says that BAFTA-nominated Nigel will play a character called Lewis, a charming gentleman escort who accompanies wealthy ladies to social functions. He will appear on-screen from December.

Corrie's getting a gigolo?

I always thought Lloyd would have been well-suited for something like that if he cleaned himself up.

So who shall be this lucky, wealthy woman? Audrey? Rita? Nooooo...

Let's have good Christian Emily Bishop fall hopelessly in love/lust with this charming 'professional' gentleman. Emily sees that she's been good all her life and what has that gotten her? She's all alone, lost Ramsay and sees only a swift one-way collision with her own headstone...Perhaps her deaf niece will have moved in by then and she realizes that she's entitled to withdraw a small amount from God's Grace Account... and so it is folks, that Emily and Sir Gig fulfill her dream of parachute jumping, hot air ballooning...and even a trip on the Orient Express!

Let's hope he more success at it than Ken did. Didn't one of his ladies (Thelma ... pet?) die on him?

I have to say I have always loved Nigel Havers - especially recently in Brothers and Sisters (C4). And at an age where I really should be swooning over Peter Barlow - I prefer the old fashioned charm of Mr. Havers.

I liked Nigel Havers till I saw him wearing just a towel in that series about middle aged males (name forgotten). He looked a bit on the puny side.
