That was a really nice gesture
I've met many of the Coronation Street actors.
Elizabeth Dawn (Vera Duckworth) is just the same as her on screen character!
Simon Gregson (Steve Mcdonald) is a really nice, friendly down to earth lad.
That one who was supposed to have moved away to play football disappeared not long after his family supposedly moved up from down south.
The reason being that he turned into a prima donna, wearing sunglasses etc saying "I don't want my fans to recognise me"! They soon got shut of him.
