Corrie veterans to stay another year
Coronation Street's best loved couple are to stay on the infamous cobbles for at least another year.

Jack and Vera Duckworth (Bill Tarmey and Liz Dawn) were feared to be on the verge of quitting the ITV soap after each suffered health scares, The Sun reveals today.

Sixty-two year-old Bill has already suffered two heart attacks, a stroke and a cancer scare, while his on-screen nagging wife Liz complained of severe headaches last month causing filming to be cancelled.

A Street source said: "It's great news they're staying. They're as popular as they were 20 years ago." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
