Coronation Street couple Sally Dynevor and Joe Duttine, who play engaged couple Sally and Tim, have polar opposite feelings about the upcoming live episode.
Joe told What’s on TV he was feeling confident: “Good, positive, up for it, excited… Quite happy to be involved, definitely.”
Sally, however, was apprehensive: “I was involved in the first live [in 2010] and I was terrified, absolutely petrified, so I think I’m going to be exactly the same that night. But once it was over I was very happy I’d joined in and been in it. You don’t want to be the one who messes up Coronation Street that’s been going for years and years.”
Joe added: “We’ll probably have a few sherries afterwards, won’t we?”
Rehearsals for Coronation Street LIVE began last week, with the hour-long episode due to screen on Wednesday, September 23. While much of the action will centre around Callum Logan and the Platts, Sally and Tim’s wedding may be ruined by the revelation that Sally recently kissed her ex-husband, Kev.
But Sally and Joe had different opinions about the significance of the kiss. Did they think a stray kiss is enough to destroy a relationship?
Sally said: “No, I don’t think so.”
Joe disagreed. “I do, I think it is.”
Sally continued: “Oh, you need to man up.”
“You can’t go around snogging whoever you want,” said Joe
“But it was a mistake!” said Sally.
“Oh I see. You could say that every one is a mistake, couldn’t you? ‘Sorry it was a mistake!'”
“See, this isn’t a great start to a marriage, is it?” laughed Sally.
