Coronation Street performers show episode nerves live – and fear of ‘Big mistakes’


The Michael Le Vell of Coronation Street has warned his onscreen daughter to not mess up the forthcoming live episode of the soap opera.

Michael, who plays with garage owner Kevin Webster “Hopefully no huge errors, eh?” – while Brooke Vincent, who plays his daughter Sophie, declared: “He Is looking at me because I am usually one that makes the errors.”

Having taken part in the final live episode five years back, Michael understands the sort of pressure it entails: “It Is like in the event you had been to do live theater – but get 17 million people watching you. You had need to fill a West End theatre for the next 20 years, seven nights per week, to get that one crowd we get seeing that episode lives.

“That is the daunting thing, in case you begin listening to figures like that – but that is the buzz you get. That is what gets the adrenaline going.”

“It was only Sally playing silly beggars,” Michael joked. She was only following a guy in a suit.

Though Michael insists Kevin is the “innocent victim” and put a stop to the kiss immediately, the meeting may have effects for his camaraderie with Tim.

“I believe he [Tim] will be more worried to lose Kevin as a buddy than Sally as a fiance,” the 50-year old performer said. “But I believe things could be worked out between Kevin and Tim. I am not certain about Sally and Tim.”

Brooke shown as for their daughter, Sophie, she is taking a mature approach. “She know’s precisely why Sally’s done it. Sally’s quite see through for the reason that manner, which is only because something new is occurring, and Tim’s clearly not in a suit using a tie.

The 23-year old performer said her character also was not so eager to see her parents reunite: “I do not believe they are going to get back together. I do not believe she needs them to get back.

“I believe she is quite content living with Kevin to another side of the road when her mum does her head in.”
