Guess what Jack P Shepherd does in the Corrie hair salon...?

There's some lovely interviews today in Inside Soap magazine with members of the Coronation Street cast nominated for an Inside Soap Award this year. 

Paula Lane (Kylie Platt) reveals that Jack P Shepherd (David Platt) is really mischevious on set and he draws naughty pictures in the appointment book in Audrey's salon so that when she flicks through the pages in scene, it'll really make her laugh.  Paula also says that Kylie will become happier in the coming months when she makes mates with Eva Price and becomes her sidekick. Sounds interesting!

Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow) says that Peter is going to have a feud with Frank, but not necessarily for the reasons we think. And although their feud will be over Carla, it goes deeper than that. 

Jane Danson (Leanne Barlow) looks back in fondness at Corrie's 50th live episode and says that her memories of the live show will always stay with her. "During rehearsals the director told me to hold back in case I couldn't pull off my scenes during the actual thing but the adrenalin kicked in and it felt amazing."

Patti Claire (Mary Taylor) reckons that Mary and Norris should be given their own spin-off detective series. What a fab idea, I like the sound of that.  Patti reveals that Mary is going to take a serious dislike to Roy's mum Sylvia after Norris has a few accidents and Mary blames Sylvia for them. "I'm not 100 per cent sure where they're going with it, " she says, "But it's going to be funny - and possibly a little bit scary."

Chris Fountain (Tommy Duckworth) says it still hasn't sunk in that he's part of such an iconic show. "It's still nerve wracking after six months," he says.

And Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) reveals she was star-struck the first time Keith Duffy (Ciaran McCarthy) came onto the Corrie set.  She says she used to have Boyzone posters stuck on her bedroom wall when she was a teenager. "I have never been so star-struck in my life as when Keith Duffy came back to the show. He walked into the office and I went numb.  Now I think of him as Keith - otherwise I wouldn't be able to deliver my lines."

Vote for Coronation Street in this year's Inside Soap Awards.

David supposedly calls SS and finds out that Kylie is handing Max over for adoption. Sure. Happens all the time. They just give out confidential information all the time over the phone to whomever they wish. Must be run by the same people who sent a 50K cheque to Ken's without so much as a signature or I.O.U.
Reeddiicuuloous writing.

Perhaps it's best to not over-analyze the reality of these storylines, after all it is a soap and they are just vehicles to explore the characters.

Yep Anonymous and we have the pillar of our community the upstanding and professional Doctor Carter who is going to be having a relatonship with a patient - none other than the gum chewing, gobby Tina Macintyresome - so lame and so stupid.

ah but Tina might not be Matt's patient, he might just start flirting with her over the bar.

@Tvor - Didn’t Tina come into it when she was visiting the surgery when she clashed with the then receptionist Gail which was the catalyst for her to meet David etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, so yes she would be his patent and this is illegal. I know we shouldn’t over analyse but some of these are written on another planet and SOME research should be done.

No, there's supposed to be more than one doctor working at that medical centre. There's that middle aged lady doctor who treated Joe ... is she still there?
But isn't it extraordinary, every SINGLE time Dr Matt slips into the Rovers for a well-earned drink, he's confronted with some medical emergency. It's as though every time Dev goes inot the pub he's confronted by a frantic Sophie screaming "Dev, me Mum's making a toad-in-the-hole but she's out of sausages - you HAVE to open the shop!"

I am so looking forward to more of Mary, Norris and Sylvia, they make a wonderful comedy trio and would be a vey welcome change from watching the whining, squealing Fizz who, at the moment, is subjecting us to over-exposure.
