In the soap world, loyalty is usually rather important. Whether you’re a Mitchell, Dingle or one of the McQueen clan, switching sides is an absolute no-no.
While the soaps’ characters rarely stray out of their respective towns, the actors who star in them often swaps sides, jumping from soap to soap throughout their careers.
David Neilson is well-known as ‘Corrie’ veteran Roy Crooper, but soap superfans will know that he also - briefly - popped up in Walford long before stepping foot on’t cobbles.
A handful of actors are serial offenders and Sheree Murphy made her name in The Dales before decamping to ‘Hollyoaks’ and later leaving Blighty altogether, jetting off to Ramsey Street.
