Maureen Lipman's Corrie return confirmed


For fans of Maureen Lipman (me included!) who might be worried that she won't be returning to Coronation Street, fear not. 

She is coming back.

The fab Inside Soap magazine last week confirmed that Maureen will be returning to the show as Tyrone's grandmother Evelyn Plummer.

Well, that's a relief, then.

I suspect her absence on screen at the moment was due to the fact that Maureen Lipman was acting in her one-woman show. Our blogger Kosmo went to see it and you can read his review here.

Beverley Callard to star in new stage show The Thunder Girls


Beverley Callard, who plays Liz McDonald in Coronation Street, will be playing the role of Roxanne in The Thunder Girls this September at The Lowry in Salford.

The Thunder Girls is the debut Novel and play by Melanie Blake. It's a glamorous epic about the reunion of an 80s girl band torn apart by jealousy and brutal betrayal.

Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors when legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion?  What’s really going on behind the hugs and kisses at those reunion press conferences?

THE THUNDER GIRLS were a successful ‘80s girl band until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit the Band to pursue a solo career taking with her, Rick, the Band’s manager.  Chrissie broke the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of Band mate, Roxanne.

At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to reunite the band to salvage herself from bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune by her toyboy husband.

But is there a price which can heal the wounds? Or maybe some friendships never die, even if you want them to? 30 years later, can lightning strike twice?
