Dirk not Kirk

I'm late to the party on this one. Following the meteoric rise of Coronation Street background artist Adam Blease, or 'Dirk' - into soap legend, Corrie fans won the internet yesterday with a hilarious series of character comparisons. 

Dirk not Kirk

Adam's appearance in the Rovers last week prompted some viewers to ask if a lookalike had been hired to take the place of Andy Whyment who plays Kirk. That was not the case but it didn't stop fans and cast alike sharing other possible doppelgangers who could be mistaken for our favourite Weatherfield regulars. Twitter went crazy with the tag #DirkNotKirk. 

Here are a few of the most hilarious, and ridiculous comparisons:

Roy Cropper not Space Hopper

Dirk not Duck

Corrie not Lorry

Jenny not Benny

Rita not Sunita

Fiz not Liz

Schmeichel not Gails Dead Husband Michael
And my own contribution:

Eccles not Eccles
Corrie fans are the best.

That was so much fun, and I totally enjoyed participating. I agree with Patrick, Long Live Dirk! Sally Ann Matthews and Lisa George really kept it going and were awesome. OH, and Adam Blease, without him, it wouldn't have been possible! ;)
