Corrie Star All Grown Up

WHATEVER happened to Coronation Street’s Jamie Armstrong?
The schoolboy star of Weatherfield between 1994 and 1997, he was the Chesney of his day.
Jamie, played by Chorley-raised actor Joseph Gilgun, hasn’t been seen since he, mum Tricia (Tracy Brabin) and baby Brad left the cobbles behind for a new life.
The man who took them away was decorator Ray Thorpe, played by Chris Walker – who also appeared in Corrie last year as Ed, the reformed killer of Emily Bishop’s husband Ernest.

“It never leaves you once you’ve done a show like Coronation Street,” Joseph told me recently.
“At that age, it just felt like this is what life’s like for everyone – I didn’t realise how big it was.”
Soap fans may already know what a now grown-up Joseph is up to these days.
