19 different types of brick, seven different types of mortar and a whole heap of cobbles required ......

This is the first official shot of the new 7.7 acre Coronation Street site, currently under construction at MediaCityUK.

The build of the new lot continues apace and you can clearly identify Corrie's new footprint. Whilst replicating the current set the new set is bigger allowing greater production flexibility.

Building work is expected to finish at the end of the year.

The programme will carry on being filmed at Quay Street until they move to their new home at a date to be agreed in due course.
