“We take a journey through Corrie history” Welcome to your super-duper, supersized, super-packed-to-the-rafters issue of Inside Soap. We have extra pages this week, and have served up some fantastic features and interviews to keep you busy – just when it looks as though we might all be spending a lot more time at home again… With Corrie’s 60th coming up, we thought it was high time we took a deep dive with the show’s original and biggest star. Nope, not Ken Barlow, but those famous red bricks and cobbles of the Street itself. We take a journey through Corrie history, go behind the scenes, and find out straight from the horse’s mouth what it’s like to work on that iconic set. Then, we take a leap into the future with our…

car crash carnage!

There’s danger on the horizon for one Hollyoaks resident this week, when they’re struck by a car! Will it be Brody as Warren plans to get revenge? Could it be Warren if Brody is the one behind the wheel? Or will it be an innocent bystander? “I can’t tell you very much,” teases Anna. “But what I can say is that it is definitely a result of Brody and Sienna attempting to flee. It’s a very heightened, emotional time where everything’s packed in the car – yet all sorts of other things happen, and it all results in a terrible car crash…”…

star-crossed lovers!

It’s no secret that Dipi has been struggling after her husband, Shane, revealed his drug addiction. Since then, the lonely mum has been confiding in Pierce, who is also having marriage problems. The couple have shared a kiss, but this week the pair get even more intimate. Star Sharon Johal tells us why her character crosses the line… What leads up to Dipi and Pierce spending the night with one another? It happens because of a diamond necklace. Pierce buys it for Chloe to show her how much he loves her – but she rejects it. So Pierce goes to the hotel room and invites Dipi over, and asks if she wants to try the necklace on. Dipi unbuttons her top so she can see it properly, he calls her breathtaking, and…

your ultimate tour guided !

A ROVERS RETURN INN Current residents Johnny and Jenny Connor, Carla Connor and Peter Barlow. History The legendary boozer is the heart of the Street, and has been run by a roll call of cobbles icons – including snobby original boss Annie Walker and her husband Jack, brassy Bet Lynch and hubby Alec Gilroy, Fred Elliott, Jack and Vera Duckworth, Natalie Barnes, Liz McDonald, Stella Price, Steve and Michelle McDonald, Peter Barlow and Toyah Battersby, among others. Though regarded as a familiar, welcoming watering hole, there’s much more to the Rovers than cosy hot pots and supping in the snug. The pub has survived some epic stunts, including a lorry crashing into the front in 1979, two fires (1986 and 2013), a decidedly un-festive siege on Christmas Day last year, and –…

sister acts

“I loved Neil’s book [The Sister is based on his novel Burial] – I read it twice!” grins Amrita. “But I do think what we have created is very different from the book. Holly has some emotional scenes: with everything that her husband Nathan isn’t saying, Holly’s anxiety builds in a different way. And when those two worlds collide, it has to erupt.” Meanwhile, former EastEnders star Nina (Syd Chambers) – who plays Holly’s police detective best friend Jackie – reveals that she was equally hooked by the gripping tale. “I was blown away by the script,” she shares. “It was phenomenal; a real page-turner. Jackie feels like a bit of a lone wolf – she’s driven in her work, which doesn’t give time for her personal life, and that’s why she’s…

morning stars!

“ I’ve always enjoyed morning TV, it’s the best way to start the day – with a cuppa in hand, of course!” insists Kym Marsh, as she and co-host Gethin Jones get ready to kick off their brand-new series, for which they’ll be joined by a whole host of experts, all helping to gently ease us into the day. “I love a good catch-up, although this will be on a slightly different scale – it’s more of a daily conversation with our lovely viewers,” adds the star. “Variety is key, so I’m really excited to work with Gethin and our fantastic guest presenters to bring the latest in lifestyle, health and consumer concerns.” Kym and Gethin’s expert team includes Dr Xand van Tulleken, Ready Steady Cook chef Anna Haugh, Crimewatch’s Rav Wilding,…
