    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Simon Gregson is one of the most recognisable and likeable faces in soap history; it's no surprise punters are convinced he'll be crowned King of the Castle."

    Simon Gregson: Not much difference between me and Steve MacDonald

    Asked if there was much difference between himself and Corrie character Steve McDonald, actor Simon Gregson replied: "Not a lot at all.

    "For the simple reason that I had no idea what I was doing when I joined the show, I'd never acted, I didn't know what I was doing, I kind of learned on the job.

    "As the decades rolled by I thought well the simplest way to do this is maybe just be a more exaggerated me.

    "Obviously the big differences are I probably wouldn't do half the things that idiot does, and he wouldn't do half the things I do.

    "It would be nice for people to see I've got a modicum more of intelligence than Steve.

    "It'll be nice for people to see a different side to me, hopefully that'll come across if I'm not too absolutely nervous."
