Steve McDonald Coronation Street

We've seen it all now

Corrie actors Simon Gregson, 43, and Catherine Tyldesley, 34, had social media followers in stitches with their hilarious comedy sketch video.

In the video, Greg unpeels a banana in front of his undies (use your imagination) while casually asking co-star Catherine how she feels about exiting the show.

Catherine stops eating her meal, bursts into tears and runs off, leaving Greg to eat his banana and mutter "f***ing actresses" under his breath.

If you play the clip without sound, it looks like Greg's obscene banana itself is enough to make Catherine run off in horror. But with the sound on, it becomes clear that an emotional Catherine is upset about the prospect of leaving her role as Eva Price.

Catherine posted the video on her Instagram and captioned the clip: “#dontaskherthatquestion #leaving #inabitbabes @fat_dracula.”

Fans loved the rude sketch and left comments such as:

"That’s Priceless! Ha ha (no pun intended) 😂😂"

"🤣😂🤣😂🤣please tell us your going into comedy 😂🤣😂xx"

"I can't stop laughing at this and I don't even know what's happening 😂"

"I thought it was gonna be something to do with the banana 😂🙈"

Yep, that's right - Corrie legend Jim Mcdonald returns this month. He'll no doubt bring lots of trouble along with his Northern Irish dulcet tones and, hopefully, our favourite moustache.

Claudia Colby returns to the street after seven years away from the cobbles. What trouble does she have in store for Maria Connor, Audrey Roberts and the street's salon?

Since joining the street in 2000, Eileen Grimshaw has had a tough old life. She recently escaped the ghost of murderous ex-husband Pat Phelan and swapped the cobbles for Bristol. But the Corrie stalwart can't stay away for too long - she returns this week.

Tyrone's troublesome mum Jackie Dobbs first came to the street in 1998 after spending time in a cell with Deidre Rasheed. She then returned ten years later to lay more drama on Ty's doorstep. He is delivered a blow in July when policeman arrive to deliver news of her death.

Josh Tucker Corrie7 of 22

Josh Tucker

When Josh Tucker left Weatherfield earlier this year, Corrie fans breathed a collective sigh of relief. As even if he hadn't been brought to justice, at least he was gone. However, we're bracing ourselves now for the return of the evil mechanic, as he is about to grace our screens once again.

Rosie Webster

Glamorous Rosie Webster leaves the street in June to pursue a modelling career in Tokyo. We can't think why she'd want to swap the Rovers and kebab shop for international jet-setting?

Aidan Connor leaves Corrie10 of 22

Aidan Connor

In a devastating but hugely important storyline about male suicide, Aidan Connor ended his own life in May. We think Shayne Ward did an amazing and brave job of highlighting this sensitive issue.

Pat Phelan leaves Corrie11 of 22

Pat Phelan

After making a dramatic and unwelcome return, viewers everywhere will rejoice in June when we FINALLY wave goodbye to seemingly indestructible villain Pat Phelan.

Zeedan Nazir leaves Corrie12 of 22

Zeedan was last seen in the back of a taxi headed for London in May. It came after Rana and Kate lied to the police to protect Zeedan over beating up their attacker.

Nick Tilsey returns to Corrie13 of 22

Rumour alert: Corrie writers are reportedly writing Nick back into the show just a year after he left. Will he be back in time to support little bro David Platt in his time of need?

Actress Jenny McAlpine is preggers in real life, which means she'll be taking a few months maternity leave later in the year. Congrats, Jenny.

Eva Price15 of 22

Eva Price

Eva has been left devastated by Aidan's death and she's confirmed to leave the street in the summer. Hopefully she has happier times ahead, away from Weatherfield.

Lewis Archer joins corrie16 of 22

Lewis Archer

Remember suave con-artist Lewis Archer? Well he's already filmed new scenes, but what can he possibly be returning to Weatherfield for? Hmmm.

Ryan Connor returns Corrie17 of 22

Ryan Connor

Michelle Connor's son Ryan has been in and out of the soap since 2006, played by three actors (it's hard to keep up). He returned earlier in the year for his mum's wedding.

Martin Platt returns Corrie18 of 22

Martin Platt

Martin Platt returned to Corrie for a one-off episode after a ten year hiatus. However, he's reportedly coming back for more later in the year. It's a full house at the Platts.

Rosemary Piper19 of 22

Rosemary Piper

You might recognise actress Sophie Thompson from her stint as evil Stella in Eastenders. She's back as equally peculiar clairvoyant Rosemary in Corrie, with a possible link to renowned trickster Lewis.

Susie Barlow  Coronation Street20 of 22

Susie Barlow

And who can forget the arrival of the street's most innocent resident, little Susie Barlow? Although something tells us she has some very turbulent times ahead. Welcome to Corrie, Susie.

Evelyn Plummer21 of 22

Nicola Rubinstein

Nicola Rubinstein made an exit in June 2018 after she was involved in a dramatic storyline involving father Pat Phelan, who was killed off. But low and behold, she's back! You can expect to see her on screen in January.

Catherine's character, Eva, leaves the show in the next few weeks after the truth about her baby with Aidan Connor comes out. We're yet to find out if she'll be leaving with baby Susie.

She's not the only Corrie favourite to leave the street this month, as earlier this week we learnt that [Eileen Grimshaw is leaving for Bristol](http://Coronation Street spoilers: Eileen Grimshaw quits the cobbles).

Will Catherine be going on to do comedy roles? We definitely think it's something worth considering after the success of this gaff.
