Corrie Secrets Revealed: Behind the scenes at the Bistro

Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert Preston in Coronation Street, is interviewed in this week's Inside Soap magazine and he reveals some smashing secrets from behind the scenes at the Bistro.

He says: "I can tell you there's a spelling mistake in one of the food mantras on the wall in there. Let's see if any of your readers can spot it!  There's also a reservations book and sometimes other actors will sabotage the page that you need to open in a scene - and let's just say it often involves unsavoury drawings or a word that doesn't belong in Coronation Street!"

Tristan also says he loves working with Kym Marsh (Michelle), that he's a big tennis and rugby fan and in real life he has three children.

Asked who he'd swap places with on the set of Corrie, he says Connor McIntyre, who plays Pat Phelan. "The way that Connor manages to keep you enagaged with Pat, even though the character has done some unspeakable things, is testatment to Connor," he says.

I find it very refreshing to know that a Corrie actor admires the huge talent of Connor McIntyre. Professional jealousy often gets in the way of such a commendation. Props to Tristan Gemmill.

I like Robert, except for his taste in girlfriends. He's a basically normal guy who mastered a craft and is making a living. I wish there were a younger version of Erica for him, someone independent and sassy who made him laugh, not a chronic jealous whinger.
