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.
Here’s a bit of soap news for you guys, next month, ITV will be screening a special documentary entitled ‘Goodbye Blanche’ as a tribute to the late great Maggie Jones, who sadly passed away in December.
The programme, which will accompany the soap legend’s screen funeral, will be narrated by none other than Loose Woman presenter and former Corrie actress, (who’s currently been very busy bearing her soul to The Mirror) Denise Welch.
As you can imagine, the show, is expected to feature clips of Blanche’s best bits and funniest one-liners. Among cast members providing contributions are William Roache (Ken Barlow), Anne Kirkbride (Deirdre Barlow), Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow) and Jane Danson (Leanne Battersby).
So, it sounds like this documentary’s gonna be a real fitting tribute to one of Coronation Street’s best loved characters, so what ever you do, don’t miss it.
Oh…by the way soapsters, just a friendly warning, next week on Corrie is the week when the Barlows learn the sad news of Blanche’s passing (which is gonna be be ‘soooooooooo’ sad), so what ever you do, make sure that you’ve got a few boxes of Kleenex tissues to hand, cos you’re definitely gonna need ’em!
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for the results of this week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me (but keep it clean!).
