Former Corrie star Liz Dawn, current breakfast TV presenter Lorraine Kelly and future bargain bin has-beens Little Mix are all to turn up in Weatherfield to appear in A Corrie Christmas, a one-off special in aid of ITV's Test Santa charity appeal.
Lorraine Kelly plays a policewoman, fulfilling her childhood dream apparently: 'I am absolutely beside myself. I am a massive fan of Corrie and have been since I was a little girl. It's always been an ambition of mine to appear, even if it's just in the background of the Rovers having a hot pot or a pint of stout, but this is even better as I get to play a character.'
Liz Dawn will return to the cobbles playing the ghost of Vera Duckworth and Little Mix will perform in the Rovers.
Little Mix singer Jade Thirlwall said: 'We've watched (Coronation Street) for years and years. Since we were little, and to be here is surreal but it's amazing, isn't it?'
So Little Mix have watched Corrie since they were little? Does she mean little as in young, small or not well known? Maybe all three.
