Last orders please ?

Corrie star reveals financial woes

Coronation Street star Bev Callard has admitted that she is in a financial crisis. The actress, who plays Liz McDonald on the ITV1 soap, revealed that she fears for the future of her two pub businesses after being hit by the credit crunch."If only running a real pub was half as easy as it looks on Coronation Street," Bev told the News of the World. "The way we run The Rovers on telly is in the realms of make-believe. If it was in the real world it would have shut down years ago."

  • Celebrity’s business running into trouble. Sad but hardly HPC material. I guess it’s a quite news day.

  • It’s not a quiet news day when America’s 7th largest mortgage bank, Indymac, has gone bust, and Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and Lehman Brothers look like they might not survive the weekend.

    Well yes, I have to concede that things are looking more lively across the pond. I wonder what the eventual effect of Freddie M and Fannie M going bust will be for us?

  • I agree not the most interesting thread ever posted but an inevitable consequence of the slow down in the economy caused by the last 10 years or so of incompetent monetary policy. Perhaps if I’d linked a Google video to this item or even found some compelling proof that Bev Callard’s predicament was foretold by ancient scriptures it would encouraged more debate ? Anyway I thought the story was kind of news worthy (even though I have actually no idea who she is). The staff that will soon be with out work might have a different opinion to quiet guy’s flippant disregard ? :o) I’ll go find a nice story about a BTL that bought into a ponzi scheme shall I ? Should I paste in graph or two explaining how much better off she would have been in metal rather than pies and beer ?

    “flippant disregard”

    You’ve nailed me. I’m not a Corrie fan so I don’t care. Your observations about Google video and ancient scriptures seem to be quite apt as well.

    P.S. Stories about BTLers getting their fingers burnt are always welcome for me!
