Coronation Street: Bruce Jones and Vicky Entwistle fight back tears as they reunite on Loose Women

Bruce and Vicky hadn't seen each other in years

Coronation Street actors Bruce Jones and Vicky Entwistle, who played Les and Janice Battersby, got emotional as they reunited on Loose Women today (Monday, September 28).

Bruce and Vicky both joined the cast of Corrie in 1997 as the parents of the loud Battersby family. Bruce ended up leaving the soap in 2007 and Vicky followed four years later.

But on today’s Loose Women the two had a reunion, leaving the actors emotional.

Asked how the pair felt seeing each other, Vicky said: “[It’s been] years [since we’ve seen each other]. Four years, maybe five. You look gorgeous still.”

Bruce replied: “So do you, you look absolutely beautiful, you’ve never changed. I’m nearly in tears looking at you, the memories are flooding back.”

During the interview, Vicky also became emotional and replied: “I promised myself that I wouldn’t cry, sorry.”

When Janice and Les moved onto the cobbles, they moved in with Les’ daughter Leanne and Janice’s daughter Toyah.

Although Leanne and Toyah are technically no longer stepsisters, the two have remained close.

Currently, Leanne is at the centre of a devastating storyline as her young son Oliver has an incurable form of mitochondrial disease.
