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 »
In forthcoming episodes of Coronation Street, despite it being the run up to Valentine’s Day, there’s little love in the air for residents Tyrone Dobbs, Gail McIntyre and Steve McDonald when their respective former – or present – partners make their lives a misery…
Beginning with what lies ahead for Tyrone (Alan Halall) his vindictive and scheming former fiancé Kirsty Soames (Natalie Gumede) is set to cause him yet more upset when she cancels one of the doting dad’s scheduled visits with his baby daughter, Ruby.
And when Tyrone discovers that Kirsty lied about Ruby being ill – which is why Ty’s access visit was called off – the mechanic sees red and unfortunately, probably makes his already tenuous position ten times worse… 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 »
In forthcoming episodes of Coronation Street, Steve McDonald and Eva Price are about to discover that a paranoia shared is a paranoia doubled as they suspect that their respective other halves are having an affair…
Steve (Simon Gregson) is of course dating Michelle Connor (Kym Lomas) and Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) is about to be reunited with Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) and though she’s lost a lover before to jealous suspicion – that lover being Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) who ditched Eva after she wrongly accused him of cheating on her – Eva’s evidently not learned any lessons.
That becomes apparent when Michelle and Rob head off on a business trip together, and when Steve and Eva get talking about it, they suspect that the pair are in fact having a dirty weekend away together.
So, with their Miss Marple hats on, they head to the hotel that Michelle and Rob have booked into… Read more & comment »

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 »

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!

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 »
As fans of Corrie may know, when Lloyd Mullaney returns to Weatherfield next week, his best bud Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) is going to be livid when he discovers that Lloyd has opened a rival taxi cab firm…
And poor old Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) will find herself a helpless pawn in their game of cab chess as they vie for her services, telephone and operator-wise that is.
The whole cab wars will of course put former BFF’s Lloyd and Steve at odds, but Craig Charles – who has been absent from the Street as he’s been filming a new series of Red Dwarf – who of course plays Lloyd, is hoping that the show’s writers will end up making Steve and Lloyd a bromance story again.
Comparing Steve and Lloyd to Corrie legends Stan Ogden and Eddie Yeats, Craig told Inside Soap magazine, “I’d love for Lloyd and Steve to play the odd couple for a while!
“There’s so much scope for comedy in that, and it would be great Corrie tradition too… Read more & comment »

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…
