Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby join Coronation Street

In a spot of cross-promotion from ITV, This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will make a cameo appearance in Coronation Street.

Philip and Holly will play themselves in Corrie and will have, and I quote "humorous involvement in actress Helen Flanagan’s exit from the show."

Corrie producer Kate Oates said: “Phillip and Holly are coming in for a bit of fun as part of Helen Flanagan’s exit story. It will be great comedy and they’re such good sports.”

In an interview on another of ITV's progammes, Loose Women, Helen Flanagan said: “I’m going out in kind of very much a Rosie style. The storyline is hilarious. It is really, really funny. I’ve enjoyed that about my character, the comedy.”

And Philip Schofield will present the 20th British Soap Awards at The Hackney Empire in London in June.  The awards ceremony will  be broadcast live on ITV for the first time.

Humorous. I won't hold my breath. What passes for humour on Corrie these days is dire.

I do hope Helen will be back after her maternity leave. I 💜 Rosie
