Corrie co-stars celebrate with the birthday boy aboard a steam train

Antony Cotton is keen to mark his 35th birthday with a night to remember.

The actor invites all of his pals from the Coronation Street cast to a lavish party on a steam train.

Channelling his inner James Bond, Antony arrives for the bash wearing a traditional tailored tux.

The birthday boy teams his structured two-piece with a crisp white shirt and black bow tie.

He’s flanked by Kym Marsh who flaunts her flawless legs in a short dress featuring embroidery across the bust.

The Coronation Street cast duo are joined by a pretty blonde who leaves little to the imagination in a thigh-skimming LBD.

Next to arrive for Antony’s special do is Corrie veteran Liz Dawn, who starred as Vera Duckworth for 34 years until leaving the soap in 2007. She gives the thumbs up before jumping on board.

Jack P Shepherd and girlfriend Lauren Shippey are the next members of the Coronation Street cast to turn up.

Jack – who plays David Platt in the Manchester-based soap – goes for an all-black outfit while Lauren shimmers in a silky grey frock.

It’s clear Antony is very popular among his peers as Ryan Thomas, Suranne Jones and Sally Lindsay all rock up to take a ride on the East Lancashire railway.

Michelle Keegan ups the glamour at her mate’s birthday extravaganza in a flirty printed mini.

The pretty brunette complements her sweet skater with a pair of towering nude platform heels.

Michelle’s mates Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinson also impress in head-turning tiny dresses.

Other guests ready to wish Antony many happy returns include Husband and wife Lucy-Jo Hudson and Alan Halsall, who come bearing gifts.
