Eat Well MCR offer chance to take on Coronation Street stars in Zoom pub quiz

Eat Well MCR is offering Coronation Street fans the chance to square off against their favourite soap stars in a Zoom pub quiz.

Ten famous faces from the series will be taking on members of the public later this month in a bid to determine the ultimate Corrie superfans of all time.

The Rovers Return team will feature: Jack Shepherd (David Platt), Sally Dynevor (Sally Webster), Sally Ann Matthews (Jenny Bradley), Peter Gun (Brian Packham), Colson Smith (Craig Tinker), Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs), Helen Worth (Gail Platt), Sam Aston (Chesney Brown), Dolly-Rose Campbell (Gemma Winter) & Tanisha Gorey (Asha Alahan). 

Celebs will be tuning in for the quiz via Zoom on June 13 at 20.00 (BST), with Caroline Dyer of HEARD Storytelling playing host.

This amazing event has been made possible thanks to Eat Well MCR – an organisation set up to feed the wider community during the pandemic including NHS workers, families with children in hospital, those in poverty, women with children seeking refuge, and the homeless.

The hospitality collective has organised an auction whereby the highest bidder will test their soap knowledge against the stars of the show.

All proceeds from the auction will be going towards Eat Well MCR’s amazing work.

Bidding will begin on Thursday 4 June.

Head over to the auction page to learn more about how to enter and read the terms and conditions.

Many other items are also up for grabs elsewhere across the website.

Silent auctions will be held for: An evening with Guy Garvey (Elbow), signed merch from Manc musicians (like 808 State, Doves, and Mr. Scruff), food hampers, TV scripts and much more.

There will also be prize drawers taking place for beer, food, jewellery, health boxes and artwork – much of it with a Manchester twist.
