In GVH vol 2, on the audio commentary of IWTBF video, Brian (or Roger, I don't remember) says that the video was a Coronation street pastiche and that the characters they played were all characters from the show. What interests me is what did these characters looked like. Does anyone have a picture of the original characters from Coronation Street the boys were playing ?

The only names I know are Bet Lynch, which was Freddie, and Hilda Ogden, which was Brian.
Try Google images, these were famous characters so pictures will be readily available. They don't actually look like the Queen piss-takes though.
For instance, Bet Lynch was blonde and didn't have a moustache.

And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...
