It’s been revealed today that Coronation Street star Simon Gregson – who of course plays cabbie boss Steve McDonald – was left red-faced yesterday when, having reported to police that his car had been stolen, he found it was in fact exactly where he’d left it!
After evidently forgetting where he’d parked his motor, Simon at first thought the car had been towed away, however, when he made enquiries, it transpired that no-one had towed it.
He then assumed it had been nicked and as mentioned, called the police only to then find his car, a top spec Jaguar, parked, where he left it. Read more & comment »
It’s been revealed today that Coronation Street bosses have now banned the stars of the show from tweeting images of the soap’s new set for fear of unwittingly issuing spoilers!
The brouhaha began when Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald, tweeted a picture of his co-stars Alison King, Kym Lomas and Craig Charles – who play the roles of Carla Connor, Michelle Connor and Lloyd Mullaney respectively – messing about in the studios while filming in the newly built Rovers Return set.
In addition, another pictures on Twitter featured Tony Hirst – who plays fireman Paul Kershaw – sitting in the pub, which as far as the viewers know right now, is a burned out shell! Read more & comment »
It’s been reported today that Coronation Street prankster Simon Gregson, who of course plays Steve McDonald, hijacked his co-star Andy Whyment’s email account and sent out an email to all his contacts announcing that Andy was in fact gay!
The Sun reports that Simon wrote, “Please all come to my coming out party. I’ve decided to stop living a lie.
“I’ve realised that men make me happy and full of joy and other things.”
Poor Andy – who plays Kirk Sutherland – had apparently left his mobile phone unattended with his email program open. Simon it seems couldn’t resist the prank.
The paper states, “Some friends and colleagues suspected it was a wind-up, but a neighbour thought it was true – to the horror of Andy’s wife Nicola.” Read more & comment »
There’s a good deal of drama going on in Coronation Street resident Michelle Connor’s life at the moment, what with Ryan and Tracy more together than ever now that she’s expecting his baby…
However, things are set to get a good deal more dramatic when, next week, Michelle’s dumped by Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) after he hatches a plan to win the mind games war that he and Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) are pretty much permanently engaged in!
He thinks that he can make Tracy leave Ryan (Sol Heras) – and get out of his life for good – if he makes her believe they can get back together. So of course, he needs to be seen to be splitting from Michelle.
Problem is, Steve fails to clue Michelle in on the scheme, so when he ditches her, she thinks it’s for real! He does eventually confess the truth, but by then it could well be too late… Read more & comment »

Several of Coronation Street’s stars were in Manchester this weekend to attend a charity ball at the city’s Hilton Hotel, and judging by snaps posted to Twitter by Catherine Tyldesley – who of course plays Eva Price – one of which is above, there was a lot of bed hopping going on, and at one point, a foursome!
But no, this wasn’t a scene from Ken & Deirdre Barlow: The Secret Swinger Files, and was in fact simply the cast mucking about…
As many of them had done throughout the event, with resident comedian Simon Gregson – who plays Steve McDonald – even deciding to join his co-star Antony Cotton on stage wearing nothing but his undies. As you do.
As Antony, who of course plays Sean Tully, soldiered on singing Kiss Me Honey Honey, Simon swept the stage to a chorus of applause and laughter.
His co-star Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) filmed the whole thing and posted the video to Twitter… Read more & comment »
Coronation Street resident Steve McDonald is of course about to rekindle his romance with Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) but having done so, he has to set his ex-wife Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) straight when she gets the wrong end of the stick and thinks Steve’s still in love with her.
And as fans of the show will know, when it comes to women, if it wasn’t for bad luck, Steve would have no luck at all, but in a glass-half-full sort of a statement, Simon Gregson – who of course plays Steve – has revealed that he has high hopes for Steve and Michelle’s romance, because she’s “not as bonkers” as his former partners have been!
During an interview which is on Corrie’s official website, Simon said, “I think Steve and Michelle make a good couple.

Poor old Steve McDonald doesn’t have much luck with women. He’s had several failed marriages and endless brief relationships…
But one woman he can’t seem to shake off – ever – is Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) who is of course the mother of his daughter Amy, and as such, she always has a good excuse to stay firmly lodged in his life.
And of course, she’s desperate to win back his heart and live out a fairytale happy ending with him and Amy as a family.
However, Steve is currently trying to woo back Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) with whom he formerly had a relationship before he became an item with ex-wife Becky (Katherine Kelly).
And it seems Steve’s albeit clumsy approach to romance is working, as Michelle decides to give their relationship another go, but her decision comes as Tracy is in hospital where she faced a life and death battle with blood poisoning after a kidney infection… Read more & comment »
In forthcoming episodes of Coronation Street, taxi cab office worker Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) is going to be head hunted by the owner of a new rival cab firm, but the sting in the tail there is that said rival firm is being run by Steve McDonald’s – now former one assumes – BFF Lloyd Mullaney!
As fans of the show will recall, Steve (Simon Gregson) and Lloyd (Craig Charles) were not only best buds prior to Lloyd leaving Weatherfield at the end of last year after his relationship with Cheryl Gray ended, but they were also partners in Steve’s cab company, Street Cars…
