Coronation Street viewers will of course know that wicked Kirsty Soames put her former fiancé Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) through hell for months with her vicious temper and subsequent beatings…
And as if that wasn’t enough, Kirsty then turned the tables and accused Tyrone of battering her, which has of course landed him in prison on remand awaiting his trial, which is set to air in the first week of April.
However, as the show’s bosses have filmed two endings to the storyline, one of which depicts Tyrone going to prison for a crime he didn’t commit while the other features Kirsty getting her comeuppance at last, we viewers won’t know for sure how it’s going to end until it actually airs… Read more & comment »
Recent reports about Coronation Street musical Street of Dreams have revealed that the show has been dogged by problems, including cancelled performances, staff unrest and technical issues.

Corrie star Katy Cavanagh, who’s recently been signed up to star in Coronation Street’s musical, Street of Dreams as the Angel of the North, has told the PA that she thinks her character’s pregnancy will be “fabulous.”
Katy, who of course plays Julie Carp, also joked that Julie may well make her own range of maternity clothes.
She said, “I should imagine Julie will be having some very interesting maternity outfits that she can make herself. That will be good fun.”
As fans will know, the pregnancy didn’t get off to the most auspicious start, given that her boyfriend Brian Packham (Peter Gunn) didn’t believe he was the baby’s dad.
However, after speaking to Doctor Matt (Oliver Mellor), he discovered that his vasectomy had reversed, and therefore, he was of course happy to realize he was going to be a daddy.
Of that furore, Katy – who’s also starred in The Cops and The Bill – said, “I think they’re all sorted now. They’re on cloud nine and they’re very excited about being parents… Read more & comment »

One of Corrie’s hottest couples – well, ok, not ‘hottest’ perhaps; more ‘pedestrian’ – Brian Packham and Julie Carp have some great storylines coming up, including making an enemy of feisty mum Kylie Platt, and becoming parents themselves!
Starting with the fracas Brian (Peter Gunn) is about to have with Kylie (Paula Lane), it all begins when the harassed Headmaster tries to enforce the school’s new healthy eating policy by banning junk food during school hours.
However, determined that she won’t be told what to feed her child, Kylie turns up at the school loaded with chips for the kids to share in the playground. And when Brian tries to confiscate the fried goodies, he ends up on his back, with not only a chip on his shoulder, but chips pretty much everywhere else too.
And curry sauce… Read more & comment »

However, according to the Daily Star, when her boyfriend Brian Packham (Peter Gunn) hears the news, he is convinced that Julie’s been unfaithful as he reveals he had a vasectomy years ago.

Coronation Street star Katy Cavanagh has revealed that her Weatherfield character, ditzy Julie Carp, is perceived by some viewers as a sex symbol.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Katy said, “It’s really weird, but I always get men over the age of 40 coming up to me and saying: ‘I love Julie, I love Julie.’ Not the wives – it’s always the husbands who are fond of her.
“I get lots of lorry drivers talking to me, too. And I get fan mail from men as well.
“I had a really lovely poem from a man who was slightly in love with Julie. He must have been over 60 and it was really nice.
“So I think there’s something going on there with Julie and the male psyche. She’s a throwback to a time when women behaved themselves, one of those old-fashioned women who’d do anything to keep her man happy.
“Maybe that appeals to slightly older men. And she’s always nicely turned out… Read more & comment »
