Jane Danson admits doubts over violent Simon storyline

Jane Danson, who plays Corrie's Leanne, was interviewed on ITV's This Morning this morning.  She talked about the storyline involving Simon being violent to Leanne.


Interestingly, Jane admitted that she felt that the violent Simon storyline didn't ring true for her when she first found out about it.

She says: "When it was pitched I wasn't really sure if I bought it because I thought Leanne Battersby's quite tough and she's always been a bit gobby and would she really take this from a teenager?  But then going into the storyline more you realise that he's never had support, his dad's always dipped in and out of his life and maybe they're the reason why he's turned out the way he has."

Jane says she's very proud of Alex Bain, who plays Simon. And she says that having such a bad temper on screen as Simon goes against what Alex is really like in real life as he's so nice.

Paula Lane is leaving Coronation Street as Kylie Platt

Coronation Street actress Paula Lane is to leave the show after six years.
Paula will be at the centre of a storyline which will be on screen this summer. She will finish filming as she goes on maternity leave in June.

She notified ITV of her intention to leave the show a few weeks ago, the producers and writing team discussed her exit at the story conference and came up with an exciting storyline for her departure which will coincide with the timing of her maternity leave.

Writers and storyliners are now working on the details of her dramatic exit which will focus on the climax of the storyline which saw Callum Logan murdered and buried under Gail’s granny flat in the live episode last September.

Guess which Coronation Street woman buys a share in Streetcars?

There's a little snippet in this week's fab Inside Soap magazine that suggests Streetcars is going to start playing more of a role in Coronation Street.  Since Lloyd left and Steve's in Spain, Streetcars hasn't been seen as often as it used to be.  Well, that might just be about to change.

Inside Soap reveals that Sally Webster is going to buy a share in the Coronation Street cab firm.  Yup, Sally Webster.  No, I don't know where she'll get the money from, either.

It comes about when Sally takes on Norris as her political campaign manager instead of Ken. Norris decides to write to the Weatherfield Gazette complaining about the opening of a new Frescho store. The problem is, he doesn't tell Sally what he's done, in her name.

Calling Tim and Norris into the Streetcars office, Sally announces that she's bought into the cab firm - so that Tim can run it!

However, Norris has another shock for Sally when he surprises her with a big announcement of his own. I wonder what it is?

Coronation Street romance for Eileen and Phelan?

There's a Coronation Street spoiler in today's Metro that suggests Eileen and Pat Phelan might be getting it together in the romance department.

After three, everybody, eee-uuu-ggg-hhh!

Michael becomes jealous of Pat's growing closeness to Eileen. And when Jason moans at Phelan that Eileen is complaining about her kitchen cupboard doors, Phelan rides to the rescue with some spare fittings and does the job, leaving Michael feeling pushed out.

And in the wake of Anna Windass later launching an attack on Phelan, Jason takes him back to the Grimshaws where Eileen prepares dinner for him.

Pics! Video! Shayne Ward drizzled in chocolate


Here is Coronation Street star Shayne Ward as you have never seen him before - drizzled in chocolate.

Shayne is challenging the nation to join him by giving up chocolate for a whole month as he fronts the British Heart Foundation’s DECHOX campaign.

The former X Factor winner gamely took part in a photoshoot for the campaign which saw him seated in front of platters of chocolates and smashing up Easter eggs. Shayne, from Clayton, also has chocolate painted on his torso and sauce poured over him in the fun photo shoot.

He said: “I didn’t think I was a chocoholic until I realised my occasional treat had become an everyday habit. The photoshoot was a lot of fun. I must admit I ate quite a lot of the chocolate props along the way! For self-confessed chocoholics like me, March is not going to be easy with Easter pending but the money raised will help the British Heart Foundation fund more research to help the millions of people fighting a daily battle with heart disease.”
