(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

This week were taking a look back at some of the Coronation Street icons from the 1980s. Let's find out what they've been up to since they left the show.

Kevin Kennedy who played Curly Watts

Kevin Kennedy played Curly Watts from 1983 to 2003.

Since leaving the show, Kevin has carved out a very successful stage musical career starring in The Commitments, We Will Rock You, Chicago, The Rocky Horror Show, Peter Pan, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. 

He also signed up for the ill-fated Coronation Street musical, Street of Dreams.

He's also appeared on TV in Holby City and Doctors.

In 2014 Kevin released his autobiography The Street to Recovery in which he talks about his addiction to alcohol and recovery from the addiction too.

There are rumours, often, in the press that Curly may one day make a return to Weatherfield but as yet this has not happened.
