Corrie: Catherine Tyldesley says Eva would be “gutted” if Nick and Leanne became an item again

As fans of Coronation Street will know, Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) ended his relationship with Eva Price a few weeks ago after she wrongly accused him of having cheated on her…

And once she realized her mistake – which was only after she’d ruined a high profile party at Nick’s bistro – she begged Nick to take her back, but he told her he couldn’t be with someone who doesn’t trust him.

In response, Eva has decided that making Nick jealous by dating Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) might make him change his mind.

However, it’s about to backfire on her rather spectacularly.

Catherine Tyldesley, who of course plays Eva, told Soaplife, “Eva’s absolutely devastated that Nick doesn’t want to be with her any more… Read more & comment »

Corrie star Antony Cotton thinks the Church of England should allow gay marriage – do you?

Coronation Street star Antony Cotton – who of course plays gay barman and factory worker Sean Tully – has revealed that he believes the Church of England need to “move with the times” and permit same sex marriages.

The issue of same sex marriages has of course long been a contentious one, with right wing opinion being that it should not be permitted by the Church, while others believe that men and women should be able to marry within their own gender in a church if they wish to make that commitment.

The government is currently looking at proposals to allow same sex marriages, however some members of the clergy argue that permitting gay weddings would “dilute the institute of marriage.”

In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, outspoken Antony said, “I’ve heard many comments – from the craziest, most out of touch, lunatic clerics to the most sensible of Church representatives… Read more & comment »

The public humiliation surrounding the revelation that Morse had been trying to get his former fiancé to share a threesome with him and Jessie – all without Jessie’s knowledge – would surely have been harrowing to endure.

However, happily, The Sun reports today that Jessie may have found her Mr Right in the form of musician Tim Arnold, who is the son of her EastEnders co-star Polly Perkins, who of course plays the role of Rose Cotton.

EastEnders star Charlie Brooks wouldn’t want Janine’s Big Fat Purple Wedding!

EastEnders star Charlie Brooks has revealed that although the set dressing and wardrobe arrangements for her character Janine Malloy’s forthcoming wedding to shady Michael Moon were “lovely” she wouldn’t want such a lavish wedding in real life.

And of course, given Janine’s propensity to marry every few years – and alarmingly often end up a widow – Charlie’s had more than her fair share of weddings on the show!

Janine’s first husband, Barry Evans (Shaun Williamson) died after she pushed him off a cliff. Her second husband, David (Harry Towb) had a heart attack and died on their wedding day.

Emmerdale: Sian Reese-Williams would’ve “dumped” Nikhil Sharma by now!

Emmerdale star Sian Reese-Williams has revealed to the TV Times that if she were her character Gennie Walker, she would’ve dumped factory boss and anally retentive boyfriend Nikhil Sharma long since!

As fans of the show will know, Gennie has just found out that she’s expecting Nikhil’s baby, but she hasn’t broken the news to him yet, fearing his reaction given that he’s told her previously that he doesn’t want children.

Of the plotline, and of how Gennie copes with Nikhil (Rik Makarem) being so obsessed with tidiness, sport and healthy living – which is almost diametrically opposite to how Gennie lives her life – Sian said, “They have a communication problem and can’t tell each other anything.

“He keeps going on about not wanting kids and it’s putting her off telling him.”

She added, “Do you know, if I were Gennie, I would have dumped him ages ago… Read more & comment »

Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden would “love to see David and Alicia together”

As fans of Emmerdale will know, Alicia Gallagher has been smitten with David Metcalfe for weeks now, but each time she’s tried to tell him how she feels, she’s bottled it…

And now, as she’s about to go to prison for assaulting Val Pollard (Charlie Hardwick) it seems that she might never get the chance to tell David that she’s in love with him.

However, when David suggests that he and Alicia should get married, only so that he can legally be entitled to have custody of her adopted son Jacob, Alicia (Natalie Anderson) is over the moon…

She of course realizes though that David doesn’t have the same feelings for her that she has for him, so when her ex Justin reveals to her that he won’t fight David for custody of Jacob, Alicia conveniently forgets to mention that to David!

So, the couple will get wed while she’s in prison, but what will David say and do when he finds out he was hoodwinked into the wedding? Read more & comment »
