These pictures show four members of the Corrie cast filming in Africa for a new documentary series called Corrie goes to Kenya.
The two-part show for ITV1 sees the Corrie stars take a break from the cobbles of Weatherfield to spread a life-saving message in Africa.
Actors Sue Cleaver (Eileen Grimshaw), Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw), Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and Ben Price (Nick Tilsley) jetted out to Kenya to work with the charity S.A.F.E. on a mission to educate people on the dangers of HIV and drug abuse, through mobile theatre.
Using their Coronation Street experiences, the four had just over a week to recruit local actors and workshop their story ideas into a series of soap-like plays, which they performed along with some Kenyan actors to a live audience in the African bush.
Before they got started, the actors took a trip to the local sex education centre and toured a village. They were surprised to see African equivalents of the Rovers Return, The Kabin, Underworld and Roy’s Rolls!
Sarah Kennedy, S.A.F.E.’s Development Director, said: "Corrie Goes to Kenya highlights the continued stigma and misinformation that surrounds HIV/AIDS across Africa, as well as the difficulties in overcoming these challenges in a country where most people do not have access to a TV and only 85 per cent of adults are literate. S.A.F.E. delivers life-saving information through accessible, mobile street-theatre."
Corrie goes to Kenya continues Friday 24 August at 9pm.
