Corrie's magazine advert for Lewis the escort

The Lady magazine is not a magazine we take here at Blog Towers. You know, it's rather posh. Well, posh it may be but it's heartening to hear it's got a sense of humour. The magazine features in this Thursday's episode of Corrie, says Digital Spy, when Rita spots an advert for Lewis the escort.

And real-life readers of The Lady can see Lewis's advert for themselves in this week's edition of the publication. The notice promotes a "discreet male escort" with "years of experience" and features a picture of Lewis alongside two fictional phone numbers.

A Coronation Street spokesperson said: "The Lady heard the magazine was going to feature in an episode, and they approached us with the idea of using the advert in the actual magazine."

Eagle-eyed Corrie fans will have spotted that the latest edition of The Lady pictured above has another Corrie connection. Joanna Lumley's the cover girl and of course, she played Ken Barlow's girlfriend Elaine Perkins in Corrie back in 1973.

That's quite clever innit?

Does the Lady have such ads advertising for Rent a Twerps, sorry male escorts? I wouldnt have thought that was the image they want to portray, especially as new editor Boris Johnson's rather posh sis has now done a revamp.

4 or was it 5 clear and obvious product placements of The Lady in the first 15 minutes of Coronation Street! That would have cost a fortune in ads either side of the show
Nice to have contacts!
