Corrie fan gets to be an extra on the Street


Mark Rooney is one very lucky Corrie fan . He won the chance to be an extra in an upcoming episode of Coronation Street. The ‘BE A VIP on Coronation Street’ competition was run by Holland’s Pies  to celebrate Holland’s range of limited edition 50th anniversary Coronation Street pies.

Mark spent an entire day on set along with his son Declan. They received a guided tour of the set, watched filming take place, hung out with the cast and crew and even took part in one of the scenes.

Mark, said: “Taking part in the filming was fantastic. Along with another extra, we walked arm-in-arm down the famous cobbled street outside of the Rovers as a scene was being filmed. It was a great moment to think that I could be staring in my favourite programme; I really hope that it makes the final cut and is aired so that I can be the envy of my friends. One of the highlights of the day was meeting Shobna Gulati, who plays Sunita, she has been my favourite character since she first entered the street ten years ago. I was a little bit star struck when I met her but I told her how much I enjoyed watching her on screen character and we had a photograph together.”  

Mark's pictured here with Julie Hesmondhalgh, who plays Hayley Cropper.
