Don't know if anyone else saw this one, but I happened to be looking through a pile of old magazines at work last night and I found a Corrie 50th Special freebie, from the People (I'm sorry - it went a-missing, so I can't tell you the exact date, but I'm guessing December obviously), in which various celebs were swearing their undying devotion to Corrie.
Most were the usual "used to watch it eating my tea in a hip-bath while my grandad mended his bike" and so forth, but I was amused by Sir Anthony Hopkins' contribution, which was, "Life wouldn't be worth living without Coronation Street." Nothing like a bit of hyperbole.
Wouldn't it be great if he appeared on the cobbles for a while? Perhaps he could help out at Roy's, cooking up some new recipes.
