Special tribute show to Becky McDonald confirmed

ITV has confirmed that Coronation Street's Becky McDonald, played by Katherine Kelly, will get her own tribute documentary.

Farewell Becky will air on ITV1 on January 24 and will take a look back at the character's best moments.

Kelly, who recently shot her last scenes as Becky, has filmed an exclusive interview for the programme, while some of her Corrie co-stars will also appear on the show.

ITV said in a statement: "The character of Becky may have started out as a petty criminal, but she went on to steal the hearts of the nation.

"So, as viewers prepare to say farewell to one of the best-loved characters in British soap, we follow Becky's journey from her first appearance in a police station, through her many triumphs and traumas - ending with her emotional send-off on the show.

"We hear how Katherine made the character of Becky her own after coming into the show in 2006, where the inspiration for those outlandish costumes come from - and fellow actors reveal all on how Katherine doesn't hold back when it comes to the fight scenes or even the soap's more intimate moments!"

Kate Ford (Tracy), Ryan Thomas (Jason), Simon Gregson (Steve) and Paula Lane (Kylie) are among the cast members who will feature.

Farewell Becky will are on Tuesday, January 24 at 7.30pm on ITV1.
