The Queen's Real Reason For Inviting Friend to Coronation Street set Revealed


The Queen's Real Reason For Inviting Friend to Coronation Street set Revealed

The Queen was in high spirits as she paid a visit to the set of Coronation Street last week. The monarch met with some of the cast and crew from the show – and her unlikely appearance went on to spark reports that she is a fan of the ITV soap.

But it seems it is not the royal who's an avid viewer – but rather her personal dresser and close friend Angela Kelly, who accompanied the Queen on her visit.

ITV's chairman Sir Peter Bazalgette has since told the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden: "We think [the Queen] watches occasionally, only because with her was her dresser, who is Coronation Street's number one fan."

He added: "She [the Queen] was very interested in the cobbles and was given a cobblestone from the old site engraved with her name. There are 1,514 doors in Buckingham Palace, so John Winston, the uber boss of Coronation Street, said she can use it as a doorstop."
