In Pics: Weatherfield window cleaners

With Rosie and Sophie reaching the dizzy career heights of window washing, it's time to take a look back at some of the characters from Corrie's past who have taken to window cleaning.

First off was Stanley Ogden.

Followed by Eddie Yeats.

And of course, the king of the chamois cloth, Jack Duckworth, who saw a lot through those bedroom windows he cleaned, especially Dulcie Froggatt's.

Then Graham Proctor.

Then Tim announced to Sally that he was intending to get himself a career that would take him to some dizzy heights, it was clear there was only one way he could go.  For a feckless fella on Coronation Street, there can only ever be one profession of choice - a Weatherfield window cleaner.

Eddie Yeats looks like the actor who portrayed Onslo on Keeping Up Appearances; is he?

Lee said...

Yes Linda, you are correct

We so miss Graham!

Not forgetting Walter Potts aka Brett Falcon.

We sure do miss Graham! He was the funniest character I've ever seen on Corrie.

Aw, I've got Geoffrey Hughes's autograph (Eddie Yeats)from years ago when some of the cast did a personal appearance in our town :-) He was very funny in real life.
