Separated at birth

Before he made his name in Coronation Street, Bryan Mosley played a very nasty man in Michael Caine’s seminal British ganster flick Get Carter. Not a lot of people know that.

Having survived being lobbed off the roof of a car park, Mosley (a reformed character) made his way to Weatherfield. Going by the name of Alf Roberts, OBE, he rose to the dizzy establishment heights of mayor over his 38-year Corrie career.

But a talent such as Mosley’s finds a single pursuit dull, hence his appearance at ABN Amro in the guise of global head of legal, John Collins. The great man is on the hunt for derivatives lawyers – not something known to be in major supply behind the bar at the Rovers Return.
