Coronation Street siblings start new Podcast

Tisha Merry and Dean Fagan starred in Coronation Street as Steph and Luke Britton.  Now, they've launched a podcast called The Drop Inn and it tackles topics ranging from lifestyle, self-help, spirituality, relationships, sex and general day-to-day life issues.

Each episode of the podcast is based on a topic relevant to both Tisha and Dean’s own lives.

“The response has been crazy,” Tisha tells I Love Mcr. “Not only have we got listeners in the UK, but we’ve had people from all over the world listening in – loads of really random listeners that we didn’t expect at all. Most of our listeners actually aren’t big Corrie fans. We obviously have some who are, but the majority of listeners are frequent podcast listeners.”

It all started when Dean, who hosts a regular radio show which he records himself and sends out to stations around Greater Manchester, invited Tisha into the studio – and it wasn’t long before the pair realised they had a knack for presenting together.

“I asked Tisha if she’d like to come on for a chat,” Dean told us. “And we realised quite quickly that both of us really worked well together. That was our first step in launching The Drop Inn. It got to 45 minutes in and we just weren’t done talking, we had so much more to say. I think that’s when we realised this could actually be something that works really well.”

Tisha and Dean often interview some of their ex-Corrie castmates including Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt).
