CORRIE star Liz Dawn has revealed her grief over beloved co-star Bill Tarmey, saying: “I know he’ll be waiting for me at the gates of Heaven.” The soap legend, who played Vera Duckworth alongside Bill as her husband Jack, cried for days after he died. But she says she was finally comforted by the thought that Bill, who died aged 71, was finally at peace and free from the pain of his debilitating health problems. Frail Liz, 73, also poignantly revealed how he would have been relieved to go before his seriously ill son Carl…the “precious boy” he quit Corrie in 2010 to care for. “Bill was my best friend and I loved him dearly,” she said. “I will never meet anybody so kind and generous. He had the heart of a lion, and I miss him terribly.” Her moving tribute comes two months after Bill, who had a long history of heart and breathing problems, was discovered dead in bed at his holiday home in Tenerife. Liz quit Corrie two years before Bill because of her own serious illness. She has suffered ...

Lorraine Kelly, Little Mix and Liz Dawn have filmed a special Coronation Street sketch for ITV1's Text Santa fundraising appeal. Benidorm actress Sheila Reid was also among the guests for A Christmas Corrie, based on Charles Dickens's classic tale A Christmas Carol. Reid and Daybreak host Kelly play police officers who are seen arresting show regular Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) in the mini-episode. Kelly commented: "I am absolutely beside myself. I am a massive fan of Corrie and have been since I was a little girl. "It's always been an ambition of mine to appear, even if it's just in the background of the Rovers having a hot pot or a pint of stout, but this is even better as I get to play a character." Meanwhile, Little Mix perform in the Rovers, and Dawn's popular character Vera Duckworth returns as a ghost. Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall said: "We've watched [Coronation Street] for years and years. Since we were little, and to be here is surreal but it's amazing, isn't it? "It's really nice being a ...
