On the Seventh Day of Corrie Christmas, my true love gave to me...
Seven Years of Schmeichel
Chesney's beloved dog, Schmeichel, was a Coronation Street favourite for seven years. The magnificent Great Dane made his dramatic debut when Les Battersby and Cilla were living together on the Street and Uncle Les brought home what can only be described as an oversized pet for an undersized house. No matter. Schmeichel became Chesney's faithful companion over seven years until he sadly passed away (in the show) in a heartbreaking storyline. And his name? It was Les who came up with the name Schmeichel in honour of a great Danish footballer.
