Coronation Street writer profile: Ian Kershaw

Corrie writer and top bloke Ian Kershaw with his lovely wife Julie Hesmondhalgh

Ian Kershaw's first Coronation Street episode was aired on Tuesday 19 June 2018.

Ian is an award-winning writer who writes for the stage and TV.  His impressive list of work includes episodes of Shameless, Holby City and Casualty for TV and a long list of plays for the stage, including the intriguingly named Get Ken Barlow, which he penned in 2005.

He's also written extensively for the radio and last, but by no means least, he's acted on Corrie in a few different roles and is the husband of Coronation Street actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, who played Hayley Cropper.


Ian is also a Top Bloke.  

He took up our charity challenge and told us all about why he loves Coronation Street. You can read it all here.
