Jane Seymour: "If Corrie call me, I'll do it!"


Jane Seymour, Hollywood actress, said this week that she would like a role in Coronation Street. New girlfriend for Ken and some competition for Claudia, I think? Oh yes, please!

Jane  revealed this week hat she thinks it would be 'fun' to star in Coronation Street, as her showbiz mates Sir Ian McKellen (Mel Hutchwright) and Nigel Havers (Lewis Archer) enjoyed appearing in the soap so much that they recommended she did too.

The actress, 68, is quoted in The Mail online saying: "My friend Ian McKellen told me, "You've got to do Corrie" and I thought, "Yes, why not."

"If they called me, and I could go there and do it and have some fun with it, then yes. It's a cult thing."

Paparazzi pics show Steve in new funny Corrie story


There are paparazzi pics in The Sun today showing filming of a Coronation Street storyline featuring one of my favourites, Steve McDonald.

The storyline will feature Steve  accused of taking part in a robbery where he's accused of being the getaway driver!

The tabloid says: "In upcoming scenes taxi driver Steve will pick up a fare who asks him to stop at a garage to buy flowers on the way to visit a pal in hospital. But instead of picking up some tulips and grapes, the local wrong’un robs the petrol station and then forces Steve, played by Simon Gregson, to drive away at speed. However wheelman Steve and his new pal don’t manage to get away scot-free and soon the police come knocking, thinking the seven-times married taxi firm owner is guilty."

Mr Curry Sauce tells The Sun: “Iain (MacLeod, new producer) is keen to make sure that Corrie is not all big stunts and doom and gloom. It’s always had a comedic edge and he’s trying to inject a bit of that back into it. This storyline will put a smile on viewers’ faces. Steve has had his fair share of bad luck over the years, but getting caught up in a robbery then being accused himself is new even for him.”

The robbery will play out on screens in the coming months.
