So that's what the mystery lunch with Corrie was all about - not a return of the character, but checking out the book to see that Kennedy hadn't revealed anything they didn't want him to.

I am tired of this bloke banging on and on about Corrie, his finest hour. He has hung on to its coat tails for years and hasnt done anything very much since. Move on mate!!
