Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
Hey soapsters, here’s a bit of interesting news about Corrie’s Jack Duckworth. Apparently he’s set to find himself a new bird, and we’re not talking racing pigeons either, oh no…the old stalwart will find love again when a new woman enters his life. And who is his love interest I hear you ask? Well, according to The Sun newspaper, it’s fellow pigeon-fancier Connie Rathbone – played by veteran star Rita May. The actress makes her debut in the soap on April 17, and has already filmed her first scenes.
Apparently the pair hit it off after Connie takes a shine to him, and it’s not long before she arranges a date with the widower. But what about Jack’s long-time wife, the legendary Vera? Is Jack ready to put the memories of 50 years of marital bliss behind him? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that Jack is still very much in love with the memory of his dear wife Vera, and is crippled with guilt over what she would think. But thankfully, however, surrogate daughter-in-law Molly gives Jack some helpful advice and tells him: "She’d want you to be happy."
So, will Jack listen to Molly’s advice? Will love blossom between Corrie’s pigeon enthusiasts or will loyalty to Vera get in the way? All will be revealed in Corrie next month. It’s going to be strange seeing Jack with another woman and, what’s more, it’s not going to be the same. What the Duckworths gave Coronation Street will be very hard to match; they were a one-off. But what do you think soapsters, is Jack Duckworth ready to move on from Vera? Tell us what you think.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip and the results of last week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
