UTV Continuity Announcer



I had to watch this twice before realising he was introducing Corrie and referring to Gail and Phil's relationship. I like the way he calls Gail 'E.T.' with his Belfast accent.

Okay - just watched it the second time.

Our mission.

Find out who he is and get him to correspond with us...be a guest blogger....

He is Corrie Canuck material.

That was Julian Simmonds a presenter for UTV, the ITV affiliate in Northern Ireland. UTV = Ulster TV.

I had a guy named Seamus from Belfast stay at ours two years ago. He had the same accent. (The exciting story can be found here) .

But yes, Julian seems to have the same opinion of Gail as we do. He would be welcome here.
