ITV cash in on BBC blunder as Andrew Sachs confirms Corrie role

ITV have been quick to pounce on the BBC blunder of 2008 and sign up Andrew Sachs for a role in Coronation Street.

The 78-year-old Fawlty Towers actor is rumoured to be cast as Norris Cole’s brother (we don’t know either) with an ITV spokesperson saying; "I can confirm that Andrew Sachs has taken us up on the offer. He will be joining us later this year."

Channel 4 are also getting a slice of the Spanish omelette when Sachs appears on Countdown in Dictionary Corner on Jan 12.
