Corrie’s Jennie McAlpine for Radio Manchester

Fizz from Coronation Street, Jennie McAlpine, is guest hosting on BBC Radio Manchester for a few days.

She’s on afternoons, covering for Becky Want who’s taking a break from today (Thursday).

Jennie said: “I am really excited to be stepping into Becky’s shoes and presenting the Radio Manchester Afternoon Show as I have always had fun when I’ve been on the show as a guest. I love listening to Radio Manchester at home and can’t wait to chat to the people of Manchester.”

Andrew Bowman, Assistant Editor of BBC Radio Manchester, said: “I am delighted that Jennie is able to fill in for Becky while she takes a few days off. Jennie is well known to our listeners and I’m sure they will enjoy listening to her on BBC Radio Manchester. And you never know she might even reveal a few Corrie secrets!”
