Coronation Street stars at Lever Edge 2 Coronation Street stars at Lever Edge 1CORONATION Street stars put a spring into elderly residents steps when they popped into Lever Edge Care Home in Bolton.


Corrie favourites met the residents after the visit was arranged by kind-hearted Boltonian Mark Price, who helps to put a smile on the faces of people in need.


The visitors included Catherine Tyldesley who plays Eva Price, Brooke Vincent who plays Sophie Webster, Dean Fagan who plays Luke Britton, Tisha Merry who plays Steph Britton, and Katie McGlynn who plays Sinead Tinker.


During the meet and greet, one resident took to the floor to dance with onscreen mechanic Luke, as others chatted and watched.


Seventeen residents were then taken by a fleet of Rolls Royce and Bentley cars to Club 3000 in Walkden, where they were treated to bingo and a silver service meal.


Lynda Johnson, manager of Lever Edge Care Home, part of the Hill Care Group, said: “The residents absolutely loved the visit from the Coronation Street stars. Many of the residents are Coronation Street fans and they remember the old stars of the soap through to today.


“They were thrilled to see the actors who they know from the show. They really are such lovely people. They spent a long time with us at the home chatting with the residents.”
