Coronation Street‘s new boss has revealed there will be a dead body on the famous cobbles this summer.
Producer Phil Collinson, who took over the reins of the ITV serial this year, teased that the death will have an impact on two of the soap’s key characters.
He told Coronation Street’s official website: “I don’t want to give too much away, but I do have to say there is going to be a dead body on Coronation Street.
“It’s going to be a death that will affect a couple of our most significant characters in a way that will hopefully be really surprising and exciting.
“It’s the beginning of a story that’s going to take us really across the next year.”
In his interview, Phil also said the soap, which is now being broadcast in high definition, will have a more ‘cinematic’ feel to it.
“We’re going to be using different lenses so there will be a little bit of a different feel to the way the show looks. [It will be] slightly pacier I hope.”
