For the second time this week, the Daily Mirror have run an untrue Coronation Street story. Earlier this week they wrongly reported that Hilda Ogden actress Jean Alexander had died and then later apologised for the distress the story had caused.
And today The Mirror reports that actress Julie Walters is joining Coronation Street.
