Yep, they've all been in Corrie!
Coronation Street has been on our screens for nearly 60 years and in that time a huge number of famous faces have popped up on the cobbles.
Here we look back at some of the big names you might have forgotten were on Coronation Street...
Prince Charles appeared as himself in Coronation Street’s historic live episode in December 2000. His big scene, which was actually shot earlier in the day as he visited the Corrie set, saw him on a trip to Weatherfield where he met local Councillor Audrey Roberts.
From Absolutely Fabulous to her popular travelogues, Joanna has become a national treasure. Back in the 1970s though she did a bit of flirting with Ken Barlow as a character called Elaine. Ken was a young teacher when he was introduced to headmaster’s daughter Elaine. Romeo Ken pursued Elaine, but she ended up knocking him back. Unlucky Ken!
Arthur will always be best remembered for his wonderful portrayal of the delightfully pompous Captain Mainwaring in classic comedy Dad’s Army. But before Arthur started on Dad’s Army in the late 1960s, he appeared on the cobbles in nearly 200 episodes as clothing manager Leonard Swindley.
Lennard achieved legendary status as Del and Rodney’s useless but adorable Grandad in Only Fools and Horses. The veteran star played Grandad – who can forget the famous chandelier scene?! – until his death in 1984. But before having anything to do with Peckham and dodgy deals he turned up in Corrie working for brewers Newton & Ridley in 1969.
This Morning hosts Holly and Phillip Schofield made a cameo in Coronation Street last year as part of Rosie Webster’s exit storyline. Rosie, Craig and Gemma came onto the famous This Morning sofa to discuss their roles in taking down a drug lord. And Holly’s hilarious appearance was a big hit with fans!
No, we’ve not made a mistake! We know that June is of course known to millions of EastEnders fans as Dot Cotton, but way before that she popped up on rival soap Corrie. Back in the early 1970s June played Mrs Parsons, mother of Tony Parsons, and during her three episodes she even had tea with Ena Sharples!
Joan achieved TV immortality as the dreaded Alexis Colby in Dynasty. But a lesser known part of her career came in 1997 when she appeared as herself in Corrie spin-off Viva Las Vegas, in which she shared a scene with Jack (Bill Tarmey) and Vera Duckworth (Elizabeth Dawn).
