    New Year Holiday Soap Treats - In Conversation with Sean Wilson who played Corrie's Martin Platt for 21 Years

    We start the New Year with a treat for the extended break - an interview with Sean Wilson who played Martin Platt in Coronation Street for 21 years. Sean has many strings to his bow as we'll find out - acting, art and cheese to name but three! Here he tells Ashley about his early acting credit in Crown Court, his professional working relationship with Jack P Shepherd, Sue Nichols and Helen Worth, supporting Warren Jackson and Adam Rickett, advice from Thelma Barlow - and a dangerous encounter with a hand bag owned by 'Poison Ivy' (Lynne Perrie).  Enjoy!

    And of course you can hear tons of interviews with other Coronation Street stars on Distinct Nostalgia. Have a trawl through our archive wherever you get your podcasts.

    Soft Centres by Carl Chetty


    Starring SIR DEREK JACOBI as Frankie and JOANNA LUMLEY as Millicent


    Soft Centres is set in a chocolate shop. It’s Valentine’s Day and there’s about as much love in this emporium as you might expect in a nest of vipers! Millicent and Frankie have been working together for more years than either of them care to remember. But in spite of their advancing years and working proximity, their relationship seems based entirely on conflict and a never ending stream of insults. However, this Valentine’s Day marks a ‘melting point in the hatred between these two confrontational chocolatiers, and we discover what lies at the heart of their mutual loathing.

    Still to come - On Christmas Monday, Hard Centres with Sir Derek Jacobi and Imelda Staunton and on Christmas Tuesday, Dark Centres with Sir Derek Jacobi and June Brown.
