    Corrie cast at war with bosses 

    CORRIE bosses are facing a backlash after the soap’s stars were asked to help flog products for tiny fees.

    Producers have signed placement deals with the likes of Costa Coffee, Co-op and EE.

    A Costa shop opened on the cobbles three years ago, while hoardings advertising a new branch of phone firm EE in Weatherfield appeared in the summer.

    But further collaborations with the brands sees ITV chiefs expecting the cast to promote companies by incorporating branded snacks and drinks into scenes and getting actors to pose with them.

    Some are being offered just £100 a month to effectively give endorsements in front of millions of viewers.

    A source said: “It’s an absolute joke — it’s insulting.

    “Bosses are raking in tens of thousands for deals while they are getting the off-cuts.

    “Some can command much bigger fees to promote products away from the show.”

    EastEnders fans convinced Denny and Alyssa paternity twist is FAKE

    EASTENDERS viewers were left open-mouthed earlier this week after Dennis Jr was confirmed as Alyssa’s mystery father – but some are sure that the paternity twist is fake. 

    Last year, the 13-year-old schoolboy died in a boating tragedy and young mum Jada admitted to his mum Sharon that he was the father of her baby – leaving her shellshocked.

    During Thursday night’s revealing episode, Jada admitted: "It was a one-off – we were friends, but it was never really more than that."

    However, fans are adamant that there could be another twist in store for Sharon, with many believing that Jada could be making up the whole thing altogether. 

    Taking to Twitter, one eagle-eyed viewer said: "I don't understand, Dennis died in February last year and Alyssa looks only a few months old. 

    “Either Jada had a very long pregnancy or Dennis ain't the father at all."

    Echoing their comments, another fan added: "Wait, exactly how old is Jada? Cos Dennis Jr was only 13. 

    “Surely she would have read about his death in the paper/online months ago?”

    The Woolpack landlady – played by Lucy Pargeter in the ITV soap – has been busy trying to save the pub from getting closed down.

    Chef Marlon Dingle ended up selling his half of the business to Al in a bid to stop the pub from going bust.

    But to make things awkward, as viewers will know, Chas went after Al earlier this year for an affair, but he rejected her because he was engaged to Priya Sharma.

    In recent weeks the businessman has been offering up ideas that he thinks could help The Woolpack, but Chas isn't having any of it.

    Next week Marlon and Chas' partner Paddy Kirk are left fuming when he finds out that Al has allowed his son Ellis to start working at the pub without running it past him first.

    He gets even angrier when he invites a man called Trevor from a brewery in to taste his beers.

    Unlucky for Marlon, Chas is left feeling quite impressed by Al's efforts, as well as Trevor's beer, so she agrees to invest in his brand.

    Things get much worse when Al introduces a new uniform for all the staff to wear at the pub and can't help himself when he comments at how good Chas looks in it.
