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.
