This picture shows actor Gregory Cox as an undercover journalist on Coronation Street. He'll be seen on screen on Sunday,
October 14, and Monday, October 15, as Laurence Carnegie - a secret
reviewer who is checking out the bed and breakfast at the Rovers Return.
Mr Cox said: “Laurence was a great character to play as he gets
treated like a lord by the landlady to impress him and hence get a good
review. So ITV caterers provided splendid breakfasts and high teas which
I naturally shared with the cast and crew. It was great working up in Manchester as they are much friendlier up
there - not a cliche - and my daughter Georgie now lives there, so we
could meet up.”
This year the actor, who is married to actress Robin Miller, worked
with Mike Figgis on his new film Suspension of Disbelief, due out
shortly. He is also busy filming the last episode of Poirot.
