"Brilliantly, we're starting filming now for the 60th anniversary, and it's great because it's a community story. So, everyone's involved, which is perfect for Coronation Street.

"We're all coming together and it is a really lovely community story. We started [filming] this week, so that'll be out on December the ninth, which is really exciting."
