Hello everyone and here is part two of my look at the Coronation Street stars who have released autobiographies.  You can read part one here and part two here.


Another week has rolled by so it must be time for another three Corrie star autobiographies!


First up this week we have Johnny Briggs who of course played Mike Baldwin, the Cockney wide boy who I believe was introduced by producers to appeal to Corrie viewers in the South of England. I'll never forget his Alzheimers storyline - heartbreaking stuff.


Next we have Lynne Perrie and her controversial, at the time at least autobiography Secrets of The Street: My Life As Ivy Tilsley. It was the book they tried to ban, apparently!


And lastly but certainly not least, we have Ken Morley, aka Reg! The waterbed scene is one of my earliest memories of seeing Coronation Street on TV and I don't think I'll ever forget how much it made my mum and dad laugh!

If you would like some more (or to tell me to stop!) please follow and get in touch over on twitter @Chadderbox2018
