Alan Carr's new talent show The Singer Takes It All promises to liven up Friday night TV over the coming weeks.
Hesmondhalgh: Neilson's the best
David Neilson and Julie Hesmondhalgh play Roy and Hayley Cropper in Coronation Street
Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh has said that she will miss her co-star David Neilson, but that it is someone else's turn to work with him.
Julie has played Hayley Cropper for 16 years and her final scenes in the ITV soap are due to air next week when her character, who has terminal cancer, takes her own life.
The actress described herself and David, who plays Hayley's husband Roy, as "like an old married couple" in real-life and said: "My relationship with David's been the absolute best. He's completely different from Roy. He's very dry, he doesn't suffer fools. He's so loved and respected. Ask anyone in the cast who they'd like to work with, they'll say David.
"I've had him for 16 years, so it's someone else's turn."
:: Coronation Street continues on ITV on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Hayley's final episode airs on Monday, January 20.
