Double Trouble for Maria and Eva in Corrie's EXTRA Wednesday Episode

Things are about the get very messy on Coronation Street when Eva Price takes the ultimate revenge on Maria Connor in tonight’s (Weds) dramatic double bill!

As these photographs show the furious bride sees red and pushes her love rival into the fountain at the lavish wedding venue - before jumping in after her and dunking the terrified hairdresser under the water.

In scenes reminiscent of the famous Dynasty lilypond catfight between Krystal and Alexis, the two women battle it out in the fountain as the stunned wedding guests look on.

New Coronation Street Theme Tune

We are delighted to announce plans to record a new version of the show’s iconic theme tune - with cast members singing specially written lyrics.

In the exclusive video above Producer Kate Oates reveals that for the first time the opening titles will no longer be purely instrumental.

Executive producer Kieran Roberts also explains that the decision was partly driven by the abundance of great singers in the cast.

Behind the scenes footage shows Faye Brookes, Cath Tyldesley and Shayne Ward recording the new theme tune and talking about how thrilled they are to be part of such an historic moment in the programme’s 56 year history.

The lyrics have been written to reflect the show’s unique DNA and include the lines:

It’s Coronation Street
Northern friends you’d like to meet
Hotpot, cobbles, murder and vice…
Sometimes not nice (but there’s comedy too…)

Michelle comes out fighting!

Poor Eva Price finds herself on the receiving end of Michelle Connor’s wrath tonight (Monday) in Coronation Street.

Following Friday night’s shock revelation that Steve McDonald is the father of Leanne’s baby Michelle has come out fighting - literally.

After punching Leanne, and giving her a bloody nose in the bistro kitchen, Michelle turns her attentions to Leanne’s sister Eva when the pair argue over Michelle locking Steve and Liz out of the Rovers.

Determined to ruin Steve, Michelle holds a lock in and dishes out free drinks to the punters. When Eva tries to stop her she sees red and tells her to leave but when Eva refuses a fight breaks out and Michelle drags a screaming Eva out of the pub by her hair!

The catfight is the latest dramatic development in the storyline which looks set to continue for weeks to come as Steve and Michelle play out their very messy break up in public.

Cath Tyldesley said:

“It was brilliant, I have wanted Eva to have a scrap for ages. I think Eva would do quite well in a proper fight as she is feisty but she is taken a bit by surprise by Michelle.

"When I told my husband Tom that I had a cat fight coming up with Kym Marsh his words were ‘Salford vs Wigan! This will be a god ep!’ "

Don't miss tonight's Coronation Street at 7.30 & 8.30pm
