Arts: Tribute to comedy duo returns.

Byline: Joe Riley

EWAN McGregor's done it. So have Joanna Lumley, Dawn French, Ian McKellen, Roger Moore, Will Young and Sting.

Ralph Fiennes had such fun, he did it a record 14 times.

They've all been the guest star in the Morecambe and Wise tribute comedy, The Play What I wrote.

Next week the show returns to Liverpool. It actually began at the Playhouse, directed by Kenneth Branagh.

This time it plays the Empire Theatre, from Monday -- with four different guests lined up.

I'm sworn to secrecy about who they are, but I know one is the longest-serving actor in Britain's longest running soap opera.

See if you can work out who it is. n The Play What I wrote, Empire Theatre, Nov 22 to 27.
