Where have you seen Kirsty's parents before?

Did Kirsty's mum Alison Soames or dad Edwin Soames look familiar to you tonight on Coronation Street?  Well, they should do, or at least Kirsty's dad should jog a memory or two. He's played by actor David Lonsdale who's been on Coronation Street before - as Peter Barlow!  This was back in 1986 to 1988 and was David's TV debut appearance.  He's also appeared on Corrie as an investigator looking for John Stape, which we blogged here.

Check out his other work at his personal website.

Actress Dawn Hope, who's playing Kirsty's mum Alison Soames, also has a wealth of TV and stage work under her belt. Check out her IMDB entry here.

He also played David in Heartbeat. He was the village idiot. Change to see him in a different role.

So here's a trivia question: Is this the first time an actor who used to be a regular on the show has re-joined the cast alongside the character he used to play...?
