Comedian Stephen Bailey joins Coronation Street

With thanks to Chortle for this little gem.

Comedian Stephen Bailey will make a guest appearance on Coronation Street this month where he will play the MC at the Weatherfield Hairdresser Awards.

Describing it as a dream role, Bailey told Chortle: ‘When I started in comedy, my one big thing I wanted to do was to be in Corrie - especially being a Manchester boy! I was brought up watching it whilst eating my tea.  They essentially asked me to do a Holly and Phil-esque cameo by hosting the Hairdresser of the Year Awards. It was such a joy to essentially do a corporate gig on such an iconic TV show,  and with their legendary characters.’
