Remember Brookside? Well Where Are They Now?!

Its almost 13 years to the day since the last ever episode of Brookside so where are the stars of the show now?

Brookside Where Are They Now?

We all remember the dramas of the beloved residents of Brookside.

The soap graced our screens for 21 years between 1982-2003 on Channel 4 and showed us the going on of the residents of Brookside close.

So where are the stars now? We've had a look at what some of its most famous stars have been up to since the show ended on the 2nd November 2013...

Ricky Tomlinson 

Brookside Where Are They Now
 
He played Bobby Grant on the soap from the very first episode until the late 80's before leaving and becoming a household name thanks to TV sitcom The Royle Family.
 
We all remember Ricky as patriarch of the family Jim Royle for all series and even Christmas episodes of the show.
 

Claire Sweeney

Claire Sweeney is such a familiar face on our screens that we often forget that she started out as a resident on Brookside Close. 
 
She played Lindsey Corkhill in the soap from 1989-2003 and since then has appeared on celebrity reality shows Big Brother, Strictly Come Dancing and panel show Loose Women.
 
But she is most regularly found on the stage and has starred in musicals such as Grease and is currently Chitty Chitty Bang Bang alongside Jason Manford.
