Planning permission for set expansion approved


Spotted today on the Trafford Council planning website's page for the Trafford Wharf set, it appears that both ITV applications for Coronation Street's Police Station and the Brewery extension have been approved.

Hopefully construction will start soon, and we'll be seeing the new street in a few months!

There are a few other parts of the planning that are not approved just yet, but hopefully they will be soon.

Corrie Releases Statement on Manchester Attack

Following the horrific attack in Manchester last night, a Coronation Street spokesman has released a statement to Mirror Online.

It reads: "Everyone at Coronation Street is shocked by the tragic event at the Manchester Arena. Our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have lost their life or been injured. We stand together with the people of Manchester at this sad time."

Filming for the show is continuing today.

A message was also sent out from the official Corrie Twitter account. It said: "We love Manchester, it is our home. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by last night's tragic events."

Here at the Coronation Street Blog, our hearts and prayers go to the family of Corrie fan Martyn Hett, creator of the Audrey Roberts Noise, uber-Corrie fan and a hugely popular part of the online Corrie community.   Martyn was at the concert last night and has not been seen since. 

Earlier today, Corrie actors Sally Dynevor and Connie Hyde (Sally and Gina) were interviewed this morning on Good Morning Britain by Piers Morgan.  The presenter has come under fire for his comments about the attack, comments for which both Corrie actors challenged him, and rightly so. Digital Spy have the story.

There’s some good news for Cathy next week in Coronation Street when she finally gets her man!

First off, Cathy corners Brian in the cafĂ©, points out they’re both grown-ups and suggests they can still be friends.  Then she advises Brian to overcome his superstitions and take control of his life. To prove the point, she drags him under a ladder and kisses him passionately.

Meanwhile, Brian has already confided in Liz that he fancies Cathy but he’s scared of going in for a kiss as he doesn’t want to upset his friendship with Roy.  But after Cathy kisses him passionately, things could all change!

Coronation Street Spoiler: Will Bethany Be Rescued?


Evil Nathan throws another party next week on Coronation Street, and the previews say that it all gets out of hand.

Nathan spikes Bethany’s drinks and she ends up really drunk, behaviour for which Nathan punishes her for. Then he sends her into the bedroom where she’s followed by three of Nathan’s mates from whom he’s collected cash.

Meanwhile, back on the Street Shona tells Gary and David all she knows about Nathan. David, Shona, Sarah and Gary race to the tanning salon as Shona explains to them what has been going on. They kick through the door to the salon and head up to the flat. Have they arrived in time – and will Bethany believe any of what they are saying about Nathan?

Coronation Street Spoiler: Shona's Left For Dead


Next week’s storyline for Shona in Coronation Street doesn’t bode well as she gets beaten up and left for dead.

It starts when Craig lets slip to Shona that he doesn’t trust Bethany’s boyfriend, Nathan.

When Shona hears this, she rushes out of the hair salon where she’s acting as a hair model for David. She storms into the tanning salon and orders Nathan to stay away from Bethany – but she pushes him a little too far.

Nathan warns Shona that she “owes him big time”.  He then goes to grab her but Shona manages to run away and calls the cops. But when she rings the police, her phone is knocked from her hand and two men throw her to the ground, leaving her unconscious.  Is Nathan behind all of this?
