Pics: Sally and Tim as Annie and Albert for Text Santa

Pictures have been released showing some of the Coronation Street cast as classic characters.  It's all in aid of a sketch that will run as part of ITV's Text Santa on Friday 18 December.

Sally Dynevor (Sally Metcalfe) is done up as Annie Walker.  Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe) is Uncle Albert Tatlock.  And Debbie Rush (Anna Windass) is dolled up as Elsie Tanner.



And Les Dennis will do his Mavis "I don't really know" Riley!

Sir Richard Branson will also join in the Coronation Street sketch. Read more on that here.

It's not the first time that Corrie cast members have dressed up as blasts from the show's past. Have a look here for some more amazing photos.

Sally as Annie Walker is uncanny!

Sally is perfect!!

Annie and Elsie are spot on but Albert not so much. He would never dress so casually at the Rovers - he'd be wearing a suit (the same one he wore for all 24 years in the programme) bearing his military medal, and usually a coat over that.

From the photos, it looks like they've recreated the old Rovers. The attention to detail is fantastic. Will we see the snug?

Was just about to write something similar to David's comment above. It appears they've recreated the old Rovers set..hopefully others too.

For the era for which they're dressed, should they be in color?

I'd love to know where La Knox was when Les Dennis was dressed up as Mavis.

That's what I thought - the grey mack and muffler would have been more Uncle Albert. Joe Dutine's just too young for Albert.

Is it just me or does Joe Duttine looks more like Percy Sugden? Can just see him in a brown overall, although perhaps he was after Annie's time.

Deb is a better Elsie than Kim imho. Love Sally as Hilda, perhaps Albert was really young once!

I really hope we can view this in Canada. Hopefully some good soul will post it on Youtube.

I first thought Tim was done up like Stan Ogden. I think Stan sometimes wore a cap did he not? He also had a little tache although he didn't wear glasses all the time for most of the years, just for reading.

I would love to see Norris as Jack Walker...there would be a strong resemblance. Having said that, the character of Jack had sadly died by 1972...

Wow, Sally's spot on, but I think Kym Marsh made a better Else Tanner than Debbie Rush does.

Cobblestone said...

I thought Debbie sounded more like Elsie than Kim (apart from a tiny hint of Scouse in her accent - is Debbie Rush from Liverpool?) Sally's final line was spine-tinglingly on the money. It makes me want to see Sally take on the Robers all the more now, especially now she's married to Tim! It was the surprise of a grown-up Amy Barlow, that astonished me though. She looked about eighteen! How did they do that? (But then again, how could the Amy of perhaps seven or eight years from now fail to recognise Tyrone & Kirk, whom she's known all her life? Sorry, too analytical; I know it was just a bit of fun!)

But, my God, hasn't Mavis piled on weight ...!
