Coronation Street fans have been promised a "glorious homage" and a "comedy of errors" for the ITV soap's 10,000th episode next month.
The hour-long special will air on ITV and Virgin Media One on Friday, February 7.

The Press Association says the episode will see Rita receive the ashes of her estranged husband Dennis, and a note requesting that she scatter them in Blackpool.
She is joined on the trip by a number of Weatherfield residents, including Ken, Jenny, Gail and Audrey. However, things don't go to plan - and by the end of the episode one character has decided to leave the cobbles for good.
Corrie's producer Iain MacLeod said: "10,000 episodes! Not bad for a programme which one newspaper said in 1960 was 'doomed from the outset'.
"I am first and foremost a massive fan of the show and I watched this landmark episode with absolute glee.
"It is uniquely Corrie: funny, poignant and characterful - and a glorious homage to the comedic charabanc trips of times past, packed with strong female characters and sparkling dialogue."
"It's a really great exhibition of Coronation Street's classic qualities as we start a new decade on the cobbles," MacLeod added.
Coronation Street celebrates its 60th birthday later this year. It airs on Virgin Media One and ITV on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
