Welcome to A Slice of Soap.
Hey soapsters here’s a bit of good news for you, Bradley Walsh is set to make a return to The Street as Danny Baldwin. Read the following:
Bradders – currently in panto in Milton Keynes – said: “I will be going back . . . but it probably won’t be until the end of next summer as the storylines are written so far in advance.” He left the ITV show last year after his character Danny Baldwin became a missing person.
The return of Bradley Walsh to The Street is excellent news. He’s definitely one of Corrie’s stronger characters and with so many key characters leaving the show i.e. Vera Duckworth and Sarah Platt, his decision to return to The Street couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s only a shame that we have to wait until the end of next summer cos it seems to me that Corrie are scraping the barrel with some of their storylines…yes I refer to the current Michelle Connor baby swap saga.
But I wonder what Danny Baldwin’s been up to cos it’s been over a year since anyone’s seen or heard from him. Perhaps he’s gone and done what people down on their luck (especially on the romance side) used to do in days gone by, you know, join the Foreign Legion – cos we all know that there’s things that have happened in his life that he’d rather forget. Or maybe he’s gone and done one better and is sleeping rough on the streets of Walford. Yeah…we all know that Albert Square is the problem capital of the world, especially in the run up to Christmas. Old Danny Baldwin’s probably sitting on a bench in The Square with a rum bottle in one hand and a cigar in the other thinking – ain’t my life just wonderful!
But hey I think my imagination’s running away with me (but probably not as much as the Corrie Scriptwriters at present). It’s just good to know that Bradders will be returning to the cobbles.
Talking about missing persons, it’s my pleasure to announce that Gus will be making an appearance on EastEnders. In his biggest storyline since his attempt at being Walford’s first road sweeping poet, this week our hero Gus finds himself in problems with Sean ‘Shout’ Slater who’s down on his luck and looking for a place to stay. Gus has a spare room but as you can imagine, there’s ‘no room in his Inn’ for Sean ‘Shout’ Slater. However, he has other ideas. Could this signal the beginning of the end for our road sweeping Hero Gus? Will he suffer the same fate as Billly and Honey Mitchell and be left wondering the streets of Walford this Christmas with no where to call his own?
That’s it for now. I’m taking a break over Christmas so join me on Wednesday January 9 for more soap gossip. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
