Comedian Vic Reeves lands a role on long-running soap Coronation Street

VIC REEVES: Has been a lifelong fan of Corrie.

COMEDIAN Vic Reeves will make his life ‘complete’ when he appears on the long-running soap Coronation Street.

The 58-year-old, whose real name is Jim Moir, is best known for his comedy partnership with Bob Mortimer.

He will film a three-month run on the show starting in July, and audiences can expect to see him on screen from the end of the summer.

Reeves will play a television presenter who comes to Weatherfield to film with characters Norris Cole and Mary Taylor after they are chosen to appear on his show.

Responding to the news, Reeves said: “I’ve been a lifelong fan of Corrie. In fact, I think I saw the very first one. I try not to miss any episodes. I’m really looking forward to acting in Corrie.

It’s a real thrill to be part of a British institution.”

Gone is The Great British Bake Off of old, as we officially welcome in the Channel 4 era of new hosts, a new tent and, yes, even new work benches.

Gone are the pale, soothing tones we’ve come to associate with former judge Mary Berry, and in their place are the brighter hues of lime green, purple and turquoise.

While new, it’s yet to be seen if the move to Channel 4 will improve the much-loved Bake Off, what with its brand new line-up.

Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will judge the nation’s favourite baking competition, while hosts Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding take over from the innuendo-loving Mel and Sue.
