Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall hilariously compares shirtless snap of co-star Andy Whyment to E.T.

Alan Halsall gave his Coronation Street co-star Andy Whyment a good laugh today, 20 May, by comparing a shirtless snap of him to the physique of the alien character E.T.

The 37 year old, who was recently left spooked after his friends saw the face of Child's Play doll Chucky on his knee in a snap, targeted the soap star after Andy had shared a video of himself sunbathing outside on his own Instagram Stories.

Andy then took it upon himself to upload a side-by-side image to his social media feed to show his 372,000 followers the likeness between the two bodies, after Alan sent it to him.

"We have enough episodes in the can until early July, so hopefully we won’t have to go off air.

"They’ve been rewriting all the scripts and it’s [coronavirus] been such a massive part of everyone’s lives, so the show will probably reflect that.

"We won’t be able to do big group scenes, like where everyone is in the Rovers, and if pubs haven’t reopened by then, we won’t be able to do any scenes in the Rovers at all," he added.
