Coronation Street Dennis Tanner star's life - soap exit, record holder and pop career
Coronation street - with his appearance surprising both viewers and Weatherfield residents.He returned to the street on this day in 2011 (May 12), after 43 years away from the soap - with Dennis Tanner actor Philip Lowrie remaining on Coronation Street for a further three years before departing once more.To mark the anniversary of Dennis Tanner's return to the cobbles, Daily Star takes a look inside the life of actor Philip Lowrie - from connections to Victoria Wood to a hidden popstar career.Philip Lowrie was one of the Coronation Street OGs when the soap began on December 9, 1960 - but he originally auditioned for the part of Ken Barlow, before William Roache was offered the role.Instead, Philip was cast as the cobbles first bad-boy Dennis Tanner, with the character fresh out of a six-month stint in prison and hoping to embark on a career as a talent manager and a singer.During his time on the cobbles, a future fan favourite was also introduced as an acquaintance of Dennis' - the lovable Rita Littlewood - later known as Rita Sullivan, who famously ran the cobble's newsagents for many years when she joined the soap as a permanent character in 1972.Two years after joining the soap, Philip shared a similarity with his on-screen counterpart when he decided to embark on a career as a pop star.In 1963, he recorded a single called I Might Have Known at London's famous Abbey Road Studios, but the song failed to reach the UK charts.It is reported that his pop star career did not take off and he continued to play Dennis Tanner until Philip decided to leave Coronation Street in 1968.Dennis was written out of the series after his character left for a new job in Bristol alongside wife Jenny Sutton - and it would be many years

Anyone in Bristol, if you ask do they know Chanel, and if they don’t you just say 'the bald tattoo girl' and they will say ‘oh yea I know her’.”Not just satisfied with her bald head, Chanel went further by getting it tattooed.Explaining why, she said: “I’ve got a big following of women going through alopecia or they are going through chemotherapy.“Anyone I know in Bristol, any of their friends who are women and are going through hair loss will message me and I will show them different ways to style it etc.“I remember seeing online a few years ago and this artist in the States going to alopecia parties and cancer wards and she would pen these crowns on their heads.“I saw that, and me being the most extreme person, I went and got it tattooed.”Chanel added: “I wear it very proudly and it is a very empowering thing.
