Corrie actor news

There's a new series about to start, starring former Corrie actor, Suranne Jones. It starts Sunday at 9 p.m. on ITV and is called Scott & Bailey. In fact, Suranne and another former Corrie star, Sally Lindsay (Shelly Unwin) came up with the idea some years ago. It's sort of a "Cagney and Lacey" with two Northern women. Sally was going to co-star but she became pregnant with twins so Lesley Sharp has taken the other role. Yet another former Corrie actor, Amelia Bullmore (Steph Barnes) is also in it. I've seen the trailers and it looks quite good. You can read an interview with Suranne about it here.

Another tidbit that came through my inbox this morning heralds the good news that Graeme Hawley, our John Stape, has become a dad again for the second time. They've had a little boy last Wednesday and called him Henry.  Henry joins his older sister, Audrey. On screen, John Stape's story peaks next week.
