What's this Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in a top-secret Manchester meeting It can only mean one thing, of course… he's on a guided tour of Coronation Street!
The England international entertained his daughters on their half-term school break by taking them for a walk down the famous cobbles of Weatherfield on a special tour with Liverpool-supporting actress, Sue Johnston.

Johnston, who plays battleaxe gran Gloria Price in the ITV1 soap, greeted Gerrard on the set before showing him around.
After losing to West Brom and Zenit St Petersburg, Liverpool ended a miserable week on a high in Sunday's emphatic 5-0 win over Swansea at Anfield.

Gerrard, 32, was on the scoresheet with a 34th minute penalty to ensure everything went according to script for the hosts.
Indeed, his manager Brendan Rodgers might have deemed it enough to reward the goalscoring star with a treat.
However, there were no signs of Gerrard popping into the Rovers Return for a well-earned pint. But he probably did visit in the 'Korner' Kabin…
