Pics: Coronation Street celebrations at Manchester Pride

Our blogger Sophie is in Manchester this weekend, along with hundreds of thousands of others, to celebrate Manchester Pride.  She met a few of the Corrie cast including...

Daniel Brocklebank, who plays Billy Mayhew and...

Dolly-Rose Campbell, who plays Gemma Winter. Go, Sophie!

The Coronation Street float was dedicated to the memory of Coronation Street fan Martyn Hett, who died in the Manchester bombings earlier this year.  The dedication was a wonderful touch and the float carried the #BeMoreMartyn twitter hashtag.

Corrie cast members on the flat included Daniel Brocklebank, Dolly-Rose Campbell, Kym Marsh, Brooke Vincent, Sair Khan, Sue Cleaver, Georgia Taylor, Melanie Hill, Julia Goulding, Jennie McAlpine and Coronation Street writer Damon Alexis- Rochefort and his husband.

The float and all costumers worn on the float were designed around the musical Grease with Weatherfield High replacing Grease the musical's Rydell High school.

Also on the float was ex-Corrie actress Hayley Tamaddon, who played Andrea Beckett.  Hayley is a good friend of Daniel Brocklebank in real life.

Here's Kym Marsh with Corrie writer Damon Alexis-Rochefort and his husband.

And here's some of the Corrie ladies.
