      “So they have aged up Janine on her return,” they wrote. “She started secondary school with Sonia, Martin and Clare in 1996, so should be 36-37 now, not 38.”

      Soap switch up

      SARAH Jayne Dunn has revealed she wants a job on Coronation Street after being axed from Hollyoaks over her sexy pictures.

      The 40-year-old was sacked from her £120k role on the Channel 4 soap after joining OnlyFans, with bosses saying her raunchy online content is at odds with the show’s young audience.

      The glam mum has enjoyed six separate stints on the teen-focussed soap as Mandy Richardson – one of the show’s biggest characters – most recently reprising her role in 2017.

      But she’s now eyeing up a slot on a rival soap, telling the Daily Star:  “I love Corrie.

      Why are Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson not in the castle yet?

      The soap legends, known for portraying Ian Beale and Steve MacDonald respectively on the box, have not addressed rumours of their arrival.

      They were, however, not announced as part of the initial ten celebrities to enter the I'm A Celebrity castle in Wales.

      Their whereabouts or the reason for their absence have yet to be disclosed.

      This has left viewers frustrated, begging production to let Adam and Simon join the show.

      "I'm still waiting for Steve MacDonald and Ian Beale", an impatient Twitter user commented on Monday, November 24, 2021.

      When are Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson going into the castle?

      Both Corrie's Simon and EastEnders star Andy missed out on the I'm A Celebrity 2021 launch, on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

      This has led fans of the programme to speculate and predict a line-up twist.

      Latecomers have been frequent on the show.

      In 2019 another Coronation Street star Andy Whyment and EastEnders actor Cliff Parisi entered the I'm A Celebrity Jungle together, when the show was well under way.

      The same scenario occurred in 2020 with Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson.

      ITV bosses are staying tight-lipped about any late arrivals in I'm A Celebrity 2021.

      The possibility is still in the cards, however, as late arrivals have taken place after a few days of the series starting.

      Emmerdale fans convinced Billy Fletcher will be KILLED

      Fans are convinced they have worked out how Billy Fletcher will be KILLED as the Woolpack fire plot kicks off.

      It comes as serial killer Meena Jutla seems set on taking the life of another victim, with Chas dropping a huge hint about the Woolpack's involvement on Monday.

      Discussing the pub's relaunch – focusing on Al's new business strategies – Chas revealed that if things don't improve they "may as well set fire to the place".

      Fans are convinced that the Woolpack will be set on fire by Al as part of a revenge scheme directed at Chas – with Billy being caught up in the flames.

      But Al won't be the one to murder Billy, with viewers sure that it will be Meena that ensures the Tall Trees resident dies in the fire.

      "No doubt Meena will kill Billy in another jealous rage, then dispose of him in the Woolpack fire – thereby letting Al think he's killed his son," one fan speculated.

      Has Gray Atkins finally met his match?

      Viewers are hoping that Chelsea will be the one to bring the murderer down after spotting she may be "playing a game" in the latest episode of the soap.

      Over the past few weeks, killer Gray has been pretending to fiancee Chelsea and many of his friends that he was still working for a big law firm in the city.

      But viewers were aware it was all a ruse as he actually had been fired weeks ago and was working in a greasy burger joint to make ends meet.

      On Tuesday night, pregnant Chelsea decided to confront the murderer after she was told by pal Whitney Dean that something seemed off.

      Gray came clean and confessed that he had lost his job and revealed he had been flipping burgers instead – not wanting to tell her about his job loss.

      Much to the surprise of viewers, Chelsea's reaction was calm and collected as she reassured him she was happy he was trying to make money for their family.

      It led fans to believe that she could be "playing a game" and therefore, in upcoming episodes, will be the one to finally "take him down".

      "Chelsea's reaction tells me she is playing Gray because someone's who all about the money would not have be so rational," one fan penned to Twitter.

      Danny Miller opens up (Continued…)

      “There were loads of things that happened in my life that are far too deep to go into. But it makes you think. Of course  I was depressed. I was a young lad in a television programme who ignored all the personal stuff that was going on, like your first proper heartbreak with your first proper girlfriend, it’s awful.

      “What I know from my small life experience that I’ve had from leaving school to now, is that there are so many things out there that make you angry or make you hate life.

      "But for me, I was always thinking I was just going to deal with the problem head on and whatever comes out of it comes out of it, but the depression and anxiety of things was making me go: ‘I’m not dealing with this well because I don't know what I'm doing and I don’t know who I am.’"

      Danny went on to say depression runs in his family and his loved ones begged him to go on medication.

      He added: "Being a bloke, I didn’t need that. I got there and the doctor asked me three or four questions about anxiety and depression on a questionnaire. I got halfway through it and he went 'are they were honest answers and I said 'yeah'.

      "He said don’t even bother with that test, you need help and he did, he gave me help. It took about six or seven weeks and I was like 'these pills are b****ks man'. Eight weeks in and I was like OK, I'm starting to feel like I want to go out again."

      Danny Miller opens up

      DANNY Miller has opened up about overcoming crippling anxiety and depression.

      The I’m A Celeb star, 30, said that at its worst he suffered from panic attacks on the set of Emmerdale.

      And he eventually decided to see a doctor who prescribed him medication to help get things back on track.

      Opening up bravely about his ordeal in a bid to explain why it’s important for men to seek help he said: “What I do now if I’m anxious, I tell people. The more you’re open and the more you’re honest people go ‘what are you anxious about? You’re fine it’s ok’ and then you go ‘yeah it’s ok.”

      New dad Danny, who is emerging as one of the favourites to triumph on the ITV1 show, talked in candid detail about overcoming his past troubles in a chat on the Ask Ross podcast.

      He said: “Sometimes I would be on set and just break out in sweat and then it makes you even more anxious to the point where it puts you towards a panic attack.”

      Corrie's history

      From the moment Coronation Street first aired live on December 9, 1960, millions since have been gripped by the ups and downs of Weatherfield’s residents.

      Its early days portrayed a ­realistic kitchen-sink drama showing the ordinary day-to-day lives of working-class northerners, and the show was considered ground-breaking.

      It is the second longest running soap opera in the UK after The Archers.

      But not everyone liked it. One early critic wrote: “The ­programme is doomed from the outset . . . with its dreary signature tune and grim scenes of a row of terraced houses.”

      Over sixty years on and the signature tune and terraced houses are still there.
