Actor Charles Lawson who plays Jim McDonald in Coronation Street is picking up a £3.50 bonus every time he says the phrase ‘so it is’ on Coronation Street (so he is).

Lawson, who hails from west Wales (very west Wales – very, very, very ie. Ireland) has recently returned to British TV screens, playing the crafty Jim McDonald character.

He told WalesOnCraic:

“Aye, I’ve been told by my bosses that I can earn £3.50 every time I say ‘so it is’ (so I can). After taking so much time out of work, I need that cash (so I do). It’s nice of them to offer it to me (so it is).”

But TV bosses have denied the rumours. A spokesman told WalesOnCraic:

“He’s talking out of his arsehole (so he is).”
