Where have you seen Colonel Kebab before?

We spent most of last night trying to recall where we'd seen Colonel Kebab before. And finally it came to me - he was in Phoenix Nights. At least, that's where we know him best from.

Colonel Kebab is played by actor and comedian Archie Kelly who played Kenny 'Dalglish' Senior in Phoenix Nights. Here he is at the front of this picture in the brown trousers, kneeling.

Archie has also appeared twice before in Coronation Street in minor roles. With thanks to Corriepedia, we know that he was a football Referee in January 2005 who booked Warren Baldwin with a yellow card; and he returned to the programme in March 2010 as an Enquiry Officer manning the front desk at Weatherfield Police Station.

You can find out more about Archie Kelly here.

I really enjoyed that scene. Quite a few Phoenix Nights actors have been in Corrie haven't they? Michael's aunty (forget her real name), Justin thingy, Ted Robbins, Paddy, and of course, Peter Kay himself. Could we have Dave Spikey next please.

Aww, Dave Spikey would be a fantastic addition to the cast, even on a temporary basis. Well said Louby

Oh, I didn't see the comment section here - just posted on Twitter. I think Colonel Kebab was also in Peter Kay's Car Share as the guy walking his dog on the side of the road during the dogging episode. Anyone confirm this?

They used members of the public in their everyday situations.My best friends dad was filmed waiting to cross the road at a pelican crossing. He didn't let the fame go to his head though!

Yes, that was him.
