Dales’ Tony is on the ball with Wynsors
Emmerdale actor Tony Audenshaw swapped his wellies for football boots when he popped in to Wynsors World of Shoes in Hazel Grove. The actor, who plays shopkeeper Bob Hope in the soap, was buying boots for a charity match which saw Dales actors take on the Coronation Street cast in memory of Emmerdale producer Gavin Blyth, who died last year. The game was held to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Tony, who was born in Denton, visited the London Road store with his father and happily chatted to staff, before posing for a picture with Wynsors employee Craig Rogerson. Craig said: “Some of the girls in the store were a bit starstruck so they pestered me into asking him for a picture!”
The Emmerdale cast lost out to their Coronation Street counterparts in a 4-1 defeat. Wynsors’ managing director Mark Richardson said: “Despite their defeat on match day, the Emmerdale boys obviously have great taste and know where to go to pick up a bargain!”
