CORONATION Street fans were delighted as legends Kevin Kennedy and Angela Lonsdale reunited 20 years after their soap exit.

Angela went to watch and support pal Kevin in the Rock Of Ages Musical on Wednesday evening.

Kevin plays rock guru Dennis Dupree in the musical comedy, which features classic rock anthems – including We Built This City, The Final Countdown and Here I Go Again.

Kevin, who starred in the soap from 1983 to 2003, beamed alongside his onscreen wife.

The duo looked chuffed to be reunited two decades on since leaving the cobbles.

Angela shared the snap and wrote: “Reunited with my corrie hubby Kevin Kennedy. Break a leg pet.”

Corrie fans went wild for the reunion snap, with one writing: “Wow .. that brings back memories.”

A second gushed: “Watching you both on Classic Corrie at the moment – it really was the Golden era of Corrie with terrific storylines and legendary characters.”

“Bring back Curly and Emma,” a third begged.

Another fan suggested: “I think u should both come back to Corrie and take over the Rovers Return.”

Angela recently stunned fans when she posed with The 1975 guitarist Ross MacDonald last month.

The TV star captioned it: “Hope this gets me followers up. Lush to see you all at The 1975 tour.”

Angela delighted her former co-star Denise Welch and the mum of lead singer Matty Healy.

Loose Women’s Denise wrote: “The one that got away,” with a string of laughing emojis.

In 2021 Angela stunned viewers with her appearance when she starred in BBC One’s The Syndicate, looking almost recognisable caked in fake tan.

Angela shot to fame on Corrie when she married the loveable Curly.

She was on the soap for three years, before leaving to join The Bill in 2003, portraying Helen Coles.

Since then she has starred in other soaps like Doctors, playing DI Eva Moore, Karen Sunderland in Casualty and popped up in Holby City.

Angela also played Grace Lane in Our Girl.

While Kevin went on to appear in other programmes such as Holby City and joined the West End London production of Queen & Ben Elton’s We Will Rock You.
