Coronation Street's drag queens

There's been a running discussion on the blog this week about Coronation Street men in drag.

There's some wonderful pictures here of some of the lads on a drag night in the Rovers, including Norris' fab turn as Eartha Kitt.

And here's another Corrie fella in drag, when Jack Duckworth dragged up as Ida Fagg to join the ladies' bowls team. Watch him on youtube here.

Corrie's had real-life drag queens on screen too. And did you know that the grandson of Bernard Youens, who played Corrie's Stanley Ogden - is an award-winning drag artist in Spain?

Can anyone recall any more Corrie fellas dressed in drag through the years?

I remember Ida fagg/bowling team - it was really funny. Although I reckon Jack had room for snazzier specs and a bit more "zhuzh" hairdo-wise.
