Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham visited the "Coronation Street" set on Wednesday (01.05.19) to talk about how to make the show "sustainable".
The 49-year-old Labour politician met with "Corrie" bosses to speak about how the ITV soap can help Manchester - where the studios are based - become "greener".
A tweet on the official "Corrie" Twitter account read: "Thanks for coming to visit us yesterday @MayorofGM
Great to chat about how we make the show sustainable alongside our ongoing work to help Manchester's greener city initiatives. "
Andy retweeted the message but didn't seem to comment on the post.
His visit to the Salford studios isn't his only "Corrie" connection.
In 2015, cobbles favourite Sally Lindsay - who played Shelley Unwin on the ITV soap from 2001 to 2006 - backed Andy to be the next leader of the Labour Party.
He had impressed her with his response to survivors and the families of victims of the Hillsborough disaster, when 96 people died following a crush at the FA Cup semi-final football game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in Sheffield in 1989.
She wrote: "They were screaming "Justice! Justice!" in his face. And I think he admits he was nearly in tears that day. I saw the passion on his face.
"I thought, "Yeah, whatever. What's he going to do?"
"And he did. He went back into parliament and he changed it. He changed the lives of those wonderful families in Hillsborough."
Andy was delighted with Sally's support.
He said: "Sally is salt-of-the-earth, a real people person. Her Labour values shine through in all she does. We campaigned together around Oldham market and I saw her ability to connect with people. That is why her support means so much to me."
