Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson celebrated his 45th birthday in style by partying in Manchester, which led to a singing performance with a drag queen on stage.

The actor, who plays Coronation Street favourite Steve McDonald, did a special performance which his wife, Emma Gleave, filmed and posted to her Instagram stories.

As Simon was singing into the microphone, he was topless, wearing a feathered collar, a black bowler hat, and jeans.

He was then joined on stage by one of the club’s drag queens, leading them to perform together.
