Craig Charles is da ‘Street’, man News Posted by John Hoare on 14th March 2005, 02:04 As has been reported, Craig Charles is joining Coronation Street. And we know it’s true because TOS confirms it. I’m sure news outlets are supposed to trust Reuters or something instead, you know. Anyway, Craig Charles said: “I can’t say anything… but I have got some very exciting times ahead. Let’s just say Coronation Street is one of my favourite programmes. AND IT’S FREE OF SF NERDS SPOTTY TWATS FUCK THEM AIRFIX MODELS” Possibly. No word yet on when he’s appearing or what character he’ll be playing. Of course, we could use this as an example of an interesting phenomenon; that soaps used to cast less well-known people in order to keep the shows realistic, but recently they’ve started casting bigger names, presumably to get the audiences. Barbara Windsor as Peggy is the first example I can think of. But I can’t be arsed, as all people who obsessively watch soaps are sad. DYS? Don’t forget that Craig is also taking part in The Games 2005, starting on E4 on Friday 18th March @ 9.00pm. No doubt he’ll be fit and strong, unlike spotty nerds who… you know, I’m even irritating myself now.
