Ebay Gum! Coronation Street Scrapbook goes up for sale


There's an absolute gem of an item up for sale on eBay today. It's a fan's scrapbook of Coronation Street cuttings from the 1980s. 


It's a lovingly put together scrap book from the days when scrap booking was all the rage. I know, I used to have one myself, although I don't think I ever kept any Corrie clippings in it.



Anyway, if you're interested in it, it's here to buy on eBay.

Faye Brookes reveals details of Shayne Ward's Corrie exit


Faye Brookes, who plays Kate Connor in Coronation Street, is interviewed in The Sun's Fabulous Magazine this weekend.  She talks about her personal relationship with boyfriend Gareth Gates and also about her co-star Shayne Ward, who plays Aidan Connor.

Asked about Shayne leaving Corrie, Kate says this which I found very interesting as it hints that his leaving might not have been of his own decision.  But I guess, in the acting profession, nothing is ever taken for granted.

Anyway, Kate says this about Shayne Ward leaving:

“I still feel really sad about it, and I think he’s probably going to be upset about it until he goes. It’s a difficult thing to deal with but I totally understand why they’ve done it. I’m absolutely devastated that he’s going, but I also realise you have to go with the changes.

“He is like my brother off screen, too, and probably the only person I truly confide in at work. He came in at the same time as me, he has the same background as my boyfriend, and he gets me and he gets Gareth. But he will take the bull by the horns and go with it.”

Did it make her worried about her own future?

“Oh yeah. It’s the first question that popped into my head. None of us are safe, because Shayne is really good at his job and he’s loved. But if there are some who maybe take it for granted or have become a bit complacent, it really does make you pull your socks up. I don’t want to go anywhere. I’m working my bum and I hope they’ll keep me there for a very long time.”

Corrie actors to be allowed to write their own scripts


A little snippet of news has come to the Blog via The Daily Star who reported this week that Coronation Street bosses are to let the cast help write their own storylines. The Star says that the move is in a bid to stop an exodus of stars from the show, but I suspect that's just tabloid talk.

However, if it's true, then it's an interesting move, to let the actors have more artistic and creative input into their character storylines.

And the Star quotes Corrie's Jane Danson, who plays Leanne Battersby as saying: “We can put our creative points of view across now."

Interesting....

Anyway, as to that "exodus of stars" which the Star refers to, find out who's leaving, joining and returning to the show here.
