Confused about Kirk? In the dark over Dirk?

Online sources yesterday went a bit wild and very wrong, when they said that Coronation Street fans were confused that a new Kirk had joined Coronation Street.  He hadn't. In the scene at the bar of the Rovers, Fiz called the man Dirk, not Kirk.

And, as Duncan Lindsay points out in his Metro soaps column, it wasn't a mistake on Corrie's part, as reported by some tabloids and repeated all over the twittersphere by those who should know better.

Dirk is Coronation Street extra and all-round veyr nice chap Adam Blease. He's Dirk, not Kirk.

As opposed to Andy Whyment, who's Kirk, not Dirk.

Get it? Got it? Good.

Adam has worked in the factory for years, so Fiz knows him very well. It's just the name of Dirk that is new to us - and him! LOL

Nice to have the main characters acknowledging the nonspeaking extras. It makes them all more human.

I feel sorry for the guy who is always in the background and never gets to utter a single word. Maybe it's about time that he is brought out into the light and acknowledged for being such a loyal extra. Wouldn't hurt to give him a line or two.

I didn't even notice him.

They have to pay more if extras say lines :-)
