Young Corrie cast member in the 80s. Curly Watts? Terry Duckworth? Kevin Webster? Am I close?

Curly Watts used to drink in a pub in didsbury who’s name I’ve forgotten. It’s now Alberts opposite the Woodstock. I remember bumping into him once when I worked for an advertising agency in Manchester. I was holding a red file and said ‘hey curly this is your life’ he just said FOOK OFF dkhead! Charming man 👨

Used to pass stolen goods to one of the younger members of the cast of Corrie in the eighties, who used to sell it on to other cast members. Can't name names for obvious reasons, but members of a local band did the robbing who went on to be quite famous.

This is actually a true story, but it wasn't me
----------------------------------------------------------------------
go on, give us names...
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Work it out
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll get there in the end. You've gotta take your time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
OK the Burnage Berties

who was the Corrie cast member and what was in the package
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not my tale to tell, sorry. Shouldn't have done that
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Don Brennan wasn't it. He used to smuggle the contraband onto set in his wooden leg.

This would have been before Don's car crash, I think. If it ever happened of course.

I can't remember anything about primary school, the names of any of my teachers at big school or the addresses of the first three companies I worked for.

I think MrMorrisson's a deep cover KGB agent, his story's too word perfect

No man I’m being real. Just played out and partied a lot. Still live close to my roots and still see my old school friend’s (well twice a year if there’d allowed out) It’s the joy of me being single that all my mates wife’s hate me because they all go back to the mother ship twisting there melons man!!! Always there for a session with mates!

I mischeviously embarrassed Frank McLintock on the Xmas show of the Big Match in 1971, after they won the double that year and I have footage of him putting his hand across my mouth while I am PMSL.

He then did an article in the Evening Standard on the Monday after the programme was shown entitled "The lad that made me blush in front of the TV millions" tbf he was a nice fella and a pretty good sport.

Met a few other celebs over the years also at various moments.

you mean the Barleycorn that was.

Curly Watts drank in most pubs in Chorlton/Didsbury, in his proper day job as a professional Manchester City supporter.

Im sure Binky probably knew him quite well.
