Coronation Street legend opens new B&Q showrooms

Julie Goodyear, who played Coronation Street legend Bet Gilroy, appeared at a new B&Q store last weekend - dressed in leopard print.

Julie cut the ribbon on the new kitchen and bathroom showrooms at the B&Q shop in Stockport.

During her visit she also climbed into a bath, admired some leopard print wallpaper and got stuck into helping to pot some plants, says the Manchester Evening News.

Store manager Richard Cooper said: “We are so excited to have Manchester legend Julie here to celebrate the opening of our new showrooms.”

I assume Julie is getting paid for her appearance at the B&Q. I wonder if a portion of her payment has to be given (or approved) by Corrie. Is she able to simply show up as her Corrie character and collected a wage for it? Any ideas on how that would be handled? Just curious....

Call me an ignorant yankee, but I have no idea what B&Q stands for.

Similar to Home Depot in the USA.

Julie Goodyear wears leopard print in real life too. She is well known for wearing it, so it wouldn't be a surprise for her to appear dressed in it

Tee - she would be paid and Corrie would have nothing to do with it.
