Marc Baylis on Rob doing a runner from Coronation Street

Proper soap villains need proper soap villain names and this one's no exception. No, not Rob Donovan, I'm talking about his mate Tiggsy. Yes, that's him above in the picture with Rob. 

Actor Marc Baylis, who plays Rob Donovan in Coronation Street, is interviewed in this week's Inside Soap magazine. He reveals that Rob and Tracy go on the run, but will their escape plot be hampered by a little lady called Amy?

Rob tells Inside Soap: "It's do or die for Rob this time. Rob is doing things completely off the cuff. He wants to make the right decisions but we know how often he makes the wrong ones! There's a real sense of urgency too, and he keeps changing his mind. What Rob really wants is a happy ever after, because his upbringing meant he never had stability."

As Rob and Tracy flee the Street in next week's Corrie, they take Amy with them and do a runner to a country farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Pictures of Amy and Tracy start to appear on the news and a hunt is on to find them, so the chance of Rob keeping his head low is out of the question, it would seem.

But Amy doesn't know what's going on, she's a fed-up teenager dragged away from No. 1 to a farmhouse with Tracy and Rob. And she sneaks off to a phone box to call Steve... what will her dad do with the information Amy gives him and what will Rob do when he finds out about Amy's call? All will be revealed in next week's show.

Lucy Fallon on Bethany's proposal from Nathan

In this week's Inside Soap magazine, they have an interview with Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt. 

Lucy talks about the upcoming storyline which will see Nathan further ensnare Bethany into his web of evil by proposing to her. You can read more on that here.

Lucy tells Inside Soap that Bethany feels she's not wanted at home by Sarah and Gary and she finds an unlikely ally in Mary after they chat in Preston's Petals.

However, Nathan catches Bethany chatting to Mary, demanding to know what she's said.  It's then that Nathan realises he has to do something desperate to ensure that he retains his hold over Bethany and shows Mel an engagement ring he's bought.

After Nathan pimps out Bethany this week to his mate Neil, Lucy says this about the engagement: "It makes Bethany think everything is back to normal, and she forgets about what's happened .  The proposal resets how she feels about Nathan."

Oh dear.

New Coronation Street wax figure at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds Blackpool have today officially announced that Rovers Return barmaid, Michelle McDonald, played by Kym Marsh, will be their new Corrie wax figure.

Michelle McDonald's wax figure will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds Blackpool in the coming months, where she'll be in the company of fellow Corrie legends, Bet Lynch, Hilda Ogden, Jack and Vera Duckworth and Ken and Deirdre Barlow.

 The wax figure will be smiling and standing in a casual pose with arms folded, dressed in a relaxed outfit of a grey, loose top, black jeans and boot, complete with an ombre hairstyle and natural make-up.

Kym said: “I couldn’t believe it when I was approached by Madame Tussauds Blackpool to have my own figure created! It’s been fascinating to be involved in the process and see first-hand how the figures are made.
 “It’s such an honour, especially as I’m being placed amongst Corrie royalty in the Rovers Return Inn – I can’t wait to see the figure!”

General Manager, Matthew Titherington, said: “We are thrilled announce that Michelle will be the latest addition to the attraction.

“Due to her infamous storyline in the show there has been a huge demand from the public for a wax figure, so we’re sure they’ll love getting up close and personal when it is unveiled later this year.”

Coronation Street spoiler: Craig Tinker turns copper

It's been a long time in the coming but Craig Tinker looks set to start his training as a police constable, finally.

In this pictures from next week's Coronation Street we see Craig in the Rovers Return sporting his new police uniform.  He's waiting in the pub to meet his new tutor constable.  Mum Beth must be as proud as punch of her boy and Sean behind the bar looks like he's a bit overcome by the sight of a man in a uniform.

After Craig's application to join the police was almost scuppered by mum Beth when she was about to put the form into the bin, it's nice to see Craig finally do something he's always wanted to do.

First case? Crack the mystery of who attacked Ken, I hope!
