Never seen this headmaster in Corrie. Just think I will assume he is dashingly young, good-looking and exceptionally intelligent and modest.

Must be an improvement on being likened to Fred Elliott :-D

Nice to see SueMaid (Charlene Mitchell) has joined us ;-)

Oh the Avengers, now who was the fellow in that think he played John Steed.
Was Emma the one who liked black leather or the one who wore mini skirts?

Thanks for this thread Rose, it's nice to have a bit of a laugh on a snowy night.
Just a bit of fun so no one should be offended if the soap character is not really like them.
I am not really a mad woman in an attic nor am I like Pearl or Chas from Emmerdale.
Or am I?? ;-) ;-) ;-)

Lolol SueMaid I do, don't I :-D ( still it seems everyone entered into the spirit of it one way or another ;-) )


SueMaid Report 19 Jan 2013 22:28

Rose dear - you need to get out more ;-)

Being one who absolutely detests the 'Soaps', I had to Google who on earth Eric Pollard was, having been 'likened' to him by Cocoa (TC).

Therefore, my only comment can be:

A. He's somewhat older than I.
B. I'm not fictional.
C. Character wise (based on G search) Oh dear, just how wrong can you get JLC ??

Unfortunately, ladies in particular, I cannot otherwise add to this thread, having no idea who/what you are chatting about <3 Nos da (Goodnight) !!

Rose I had never thought about doing that, ,,,,,,,what have you started ! :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D


AnnCardiff Report 19 Jan 2013 21:58

turning to Corrie - I think we'll have John to play Brian, the headmaster - Julie's OH - absolutely made for the part


AnnCardiff Report 19 Jan 2013 21:41

me flighty - don't think so - I'm a one man kinda girl - had one for 43 years, gap of seven and now have another - he'll be last no doubt


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 21:19

JustGinnie Ok :-D :-D That means AnnC will have to be Chas :-0

No, I think that might work a lot better ;-) Chas is a lot younger and, as you say, flightier :-D Thank goodness it is only make-believe :-)


Wend Report 19 Jan 2013 21:18

Bet you've done quite a bit of googling to-day John ;-)

Mind you, I have too and you do look a bit like that bloke, erm . . . sorry, it'll come to me in a minute - BARB, where are you when I need you?


JustGinnie Report 19 Jan 2013 21:13

I want to be Pearl instead of Chaz Dingle. Chaz is much too flighty for me. ;-)


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 21:00

AnnC :-D And you (in your alter ego of Pearl from Emmerdale) played Eunice Gee in Corrie, wife of barman Fred Gee.

And Wend. Susan Penhaligon was in film "Under Milk Wood" 40 years ago - starring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Peter O'Toole. She was Mae Rose Cottage and her fellow actress Ruth Madoc (Mrs Dai Bread Two) both displayed what very good actresses they were in that film. In fact, I had to google to remember that Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were also in that film. :-D ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 19 Jan 2013 20:42

I stand corrected - apologies!


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 20:33

Koo Stark and Susan Penhaligon <3 <3 <3 <3

Can't concentrate :-( :-( :-(

I thought I also remembered Shirley Stelfox from Tenko - that programme about women with no clothes on. But no!! She was a bunny girl waitress in an early Carry On Film before going on to star as Rose before Rose got all soft and silly and fell in love with Vicar. Hope I got that all right - just off to google Woodentops :-)

Edna Birch used to play Rose in KUA.


Wend Report 19 Jan 2013 20:20

I used to be told that I looked like Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire years ago, anyone remember?), but seeing her at the theatre a couple of years ago, I don't think I do now (well, I hope I don't lol)
