Corrie favourites Simon Gregson, Antony Cotton, Victoria Ekanoye and Melanie Hill stepped out of their comfort zone yesterday to take part in a tug of war with the army.

The tug took place on the cobbles, with the cast joining the crew to take on the army’s official tug of war team.

The tug comprised of three “pulls”, with the crowning glory going to the army after the Corrie cast suffered a 2-1 defeat.

The visit was part of a fun festive challenge for ‘Totally Christmas’, a compilation of messages from military families to their loved ones back home and overseas.
