News: Comedian Stephen Bailey To Guest In Coronation Street

Comedian Stephen Bailey has landed his dream role and will be making a guest appearance in Coronation Street.

In the episodes to be broadcast on Monday 12th November at 7.30pm and 8.30pm, Stephen plays the MC of the Weatherfield Hairdresser Awards.  

Stephen says: “When I started in comedy, my one big thing I wanted to do was to be in Corrie - especially being a Manchester boy! I was brought up watching it whilst eating my tea. They essentially asked me to do a Holly and Phil-esque cameo by hosting the Hairdresser of the Year Awards -  it was such a joy to essentially do a corporate gig on such an iconic TV show - and with their legendary characters.” 

Bailey has had a very exciting year so far having landed his first presenting role on 5 STAR’s Celebs on the Farm, which was broadcast in August 2018. Following the success of the series, Stephen will return as host of the recently announced Celebs on the Ranch, to be broadcast on 5 STAR early next year. 

He has also been nominated for Best Newcomer in this this year’s I Talk Telly Awards. Voting is open here:

He also recently made his debut on Comedy Central’s Live At The Comedy Store and Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and has been agony uncle on Zoe Ball on Saturday/Sunday on ITV, which returns this Christmas for some festive episodes. Other recent TV appearances include BBC Two’s The Apprentice: You’re Fired and Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.

Following a run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, he will be touring his show Our Kid around the UK from February to June 2019. Details here.
