Hello and welcome to another 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. What’s going on in the news? Well, one of Coronation Street’s most dysfunctional families are going to go all chav on us and air their dirty laundry in a special edition of the Jeremy Kyle show.
David Platt (played by Jack P Shepherd), his ex-girlfriend and step-sister Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) and his big brother Nick (Ben Price) will have it out on the 1,000th episode of the hugely popular ITV1 talk show.
My favourite Corrie eccentric Graeme Proctor (played by Craig Gazey) will be in the audience. Here’s the really funny bit; it wouldn’t be a typical Jeremy Kyle episode if somebody didn’t have a lie detector test so David demands one to see if Tina and Nick have been sleeping together! That is hilarious. I can’t wait to see this play out.
Apparently, they not rehearsing beforehand. Craig Gazey said: "We’re going to do it exactly how people do it. My character is quite funny and may come out with silly things but we’re not doing it for a laugh. We want it to be as if the characters were on Jeremy Kyle."
Michelle Keegan admitted to nerves but she said she likes Jeremy Kyle: "I always watch it, so it’s a bit weird to be one minute watching it and the next on the show."
The episode airs on Thursday March 18 on ITV1. Will you be watching? Let us know what you think by adding a comment.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip and don’t forget to try this week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
