World of Chig   

He's back!

Next Monday (23 February) will be the 10th anniversary of the first episode of Queer As Folk appearing on our TV screens, with the ensuing media storm. I'll be writing more about that on Monday, as I was involved with the filming and wrote about it at the time in my only cover story for Gay Times magazine.

With perfect timing though, we can get reacquainted with Craig Kelly from tonight. The actor who played Vince in Queer As Folk is one of the most charming people I've ever had the pleasure to interview. Tonight, he turns up in Coronation Street as Luke Strong, sent by the missing Carla to take over the running of the knicker factory and cause instant ructions with Tony, the murderous husband she left behind.

It's not as if Craig has been away from out televisions; if you watch much TV, you probably hear him every day, doing voiceovers and adverts, from Paul O'Grady to Shipwrecked, but it'll be great to see him again. I can't wait!
