Corrie and Hollyoaks stars reunited at Manchester Food and Drink Festival awards


Former Coronation Street stars were reunited for party time with their soapland colleagues from Hollyoaks on a glitzy night at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards.

Corrie favourite Sair Khan, who plays Alya Nazir, was in dazzling form in a red maxi dress as she headed to the event where there was a reunion with her former soap co-star Victoria Ekanoye, who used to play Angie Appleton on the show, rocking a multicoloured jumpsuit for the occasion.

They were joined at the hospitality awards bash by Hollyoaks stalwarts Ashley Taylor-Dawson and ever-glam Sarah Jayne Dunn, and they swiftly billed their table “the fun table” with all the jollity of the TV star reunion.

The TV favourites were all on hosting duties on the night crowning the best of Manchester’s restaurant and bar scene, alongside another Corrie alumni John Thomson, who was dapper in a mustard yellow suit teamed with a glitzy gold tie and VIP guests.

Corrie star Sair was the first to present on the night, announcing coffee bar of the year to Federal in the Northern Quarter.

And she delivered a speech praising all in the hospitality industry for keeping going and giving us all a vital lifeline through the difficult months of lockdown and social distancing restrictions.

She praised all the nominees on the list saying she’d visited them all to grab a coffee over the past year.

Sair is involved in many of Corrie’s big upcoming storylines – particularly with the return of her brother Zeedan, played by Qasim Akhtar, set to bring plenty of trouble into the Nazir family’s life again.

West End star Victoria was looking in radiant form at the event, heading along with her friend Sophie, and heading on stage to award the vegeterian restaurant of the year to Bundobust.

Meanwhile Hollyoaks star Sarah was rocking a fabulous bright blue mini dress with slash side detail that showed off her enviable abs.

The Corrie and Hollyoaks pals posted selfies from their table at the event, held at Manchester’s Freight Island.

Sair wrote: “Such a fun table” while Sarah replied: “This is fun”.

Sarah has just celebrated her 40th birthday which stunned fans who can’t believe how youthful the star looks – who has played Mandy Richardson on the soap since 1996.

Ashley and Sarah have been in Holloaks for decades

The mother-of-one was previously asked by fans how she stays youthful.

“Truth is if I knew that I’d be a very rich lady (and unfortunately I am not)” she wrote frankly to her Insta followers.

“And most of the time, especially first thing in the morning, I don’t think I look youthful at all.”

Sarah’s Holloyaks co-star Ashley, who has been in the soap since 1999 is himself part of the region’s bustling food and drink scene – running Wilmslow’s Symposium bar and club since 2016.

The annual Manchester Food and Drink Festival was able to make a full return to Cathedral Gardens this year after going online last year due to lockdown restrictions.

Sair said the night was full of fun

It has been one of its busiest ever years thanks to a warm and dry spell here in Manchester for most of the past fortnight.

The glitzy awards ceremony traditionally brings the festival to an end on the final Monday night, bringing together the cream of the hospitality scene and this year hosted by the BBC’s Anna Jameson and Matty White.
