I missed Flaming Nora’s blog post last week about the Warburton’s Christmas advert, and I saw the ad for the first time last night. I’m trying to cut down on bread so I hope it’s the first and last time I see it, but it was great to know some of Hollywood’s biggest stuffed stars are Corrie fans.
It also got me wondering what Corrie would look like if the characters were replaced with muppets. In some cases, I’m sure you’ll agree, we wouldn’t know the difference...
Beth Tinker Miss Piggy
Ken Barlow Sam the Eagle
Norris Cole Dr Bunsen Honeydew
Roy Cropper Guy Smiley
Rowlf the Dog Fiz
Kermit the Frog Gail McIntyre
And my favourite...
Rita & Mavis
Zobi & Kami
Can you think of any other Muppet / Corrie likenesses?
