April Fools: Coronation Street 1902

ITV today confirmed the commission of Coronation Street: 1902, a single film narrating the intrigue and romance that saw the beginnings of the Nation's most famous Street.

Russell Harty famously said: "There was life before Coronation Street, but it didn't add up to much."

In a world-wide exclusive, ITV are delighted to reveal that he couldn’t have been more wrong.

It's the turn of the century and as the Coronation of King Edward VII fast approaches, grieving mistress Mabel Grimshaw is mourning the loss of her lover, Sir Humphrey Swinton whilst doggedly attempting to get his vision of a new Weatherfield constructed in time.

The new modern working-class terrace houses are partially intended as accommodation for Hardcastle Mill's workers, but with the enigmatic, but possibly untrustworthy Charles Hardcastle having his own plans, can Mabel weave her own path through the politics of the day and see her late lover's plans to completion?

Expect to see this exciting new look into a never-before explored part of Coronation Street history, in Autumn 2019.

Kym Marsh

Coronation Street have today confirmed that Kym Marsh is to take a break from her role as Michelle Connor later this year.

Kym joined the cast in 2006 and has been at the centre of some of the show’s biggest storylines during her 13 years on the cobbles.

Special Episode: Barlow’s Secrets Revealed…

Coronation Street are to air an episode which will star just four of the cast and focus on the secrets and lies that are tearing the Barlow family apart.

The episode on Monday 29th October will only feature regular characters Ken, Peter, Daniel and Sinead. The action will all take place in Weatherfield General and the Barlow’s house and will centre on Daniel’s discovery of Sinead’s cancer diagnosis.

Sinead has kept the fact that she has been diagnosed with cervical cancer a secret from Daniel but on Friday (Oct 19th) Sinead bumped into Ken in the hospital and later broke down telling him her news and swearing him to secrecy.

On Monday 29th Sinead collapses and is rushed to hospital, but when Daniel arrives he is stunned to find out the truth about Sinead’s illness and that Ken knew all about it.
