Coronation Street: a bunch of Muppets

(This post was originally posted by Stevie Dawson on the Coronation Street Blog in November 2015, reposted with permission.)

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...
