Soap Star’s Subtle Star Trek Tribute


British soap viewers who also enjoy Star Trek had a double-take when they saw a character with a definite hint of Captain Kirk in her clothing.

The costume department working on Coronation Street did not intend character Izzy Armstrong’s garb to be quite so out of this world. However, actress Cherrylee Houston noticed the combination of the mustard yellow top and a black layer beneath looked somewhat familiar.

She decided to have a bit of fun by completing the look with a strategically placed brooch and production staff either didn’t notice until it was broadcasted or let it slide.
