Kirk from Coronation Street in Wednesbury

Can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this before, but on Saturday, Andrew Whyment who plays Kirk in Coronation Street did an amazing public appearance in Wednesbury. At one of the butchers no less! He plays a butcher in the soap so I suppose that’s fair. I contacted Heat magazine, assuming they would be as excited as I was, and they were. This led to my first ever paparazzi snapping / filming job – am so proud.

I got some photos:

And more excitingly, Heat made a video from my footage, which can be found here. I’m not sure it can ever quite translate the levels of hysteria and scrambling for autographs that took place. In fact, it was genuinely heart warming to see the people of Wednesbury gathered out in town – it’s usually pretty busy on a Saturday anyway, but it was nice to be out with everyone, waiting for him to turn up, dodging the packs of bacon the butcher was throwing into the crowd as freebies. There were a few rounds of “We want Kirk!” and the Corrie theme tune too.
