John Stape and Colin Fishwick - alive and well and on stage together

Coronation Street actors Graeme Hawley (John Stape) and David Crellin (Colin Fishwick) are both starring on the Manchester stage together in the play Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.
For Graeme in particular, landing the role at the Royal Exchange was for him an important clean slate after playing Corrie baddie Stape.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “It's a good way to go, 'that's done' from Corrie, and now for something completely different. I'm excited to come and work at the Royal Exchange, it's a unique space.

"Corrie has been the perfect job for me.  It's worked out great, there's never been a time when I was kicking my heels in the show, I was either in prison, on the run or dying.  From a personal point of view I've been able to go away, do other stuff and return to the role over the months. But it was also important for me that there was a line drawn under the character this time."

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is at the Royal Exhange Theatre  from March 1 to April 7.
