Coronation Street‘s iconic cobbles are being fixed – because the stars reportedly keep tripping over them.

“The new cobbles are really difficult to walk on as there is too much of a gap in the pointing and some were too prominent so actors keep tripping over them,” a Coronation Street source told The Sun.

Cast members including Michelle Keegan and Kym Marsh have been struggling to walk on the cobbles in their high heels at the soap’s new set.

And older stars such as 83-year-old Eileen Derbyshire – who plays Emily Bishop – fear falling and spraining an ankle.

The Corrie set moved from Manchester city centre to Salford Quays earlier this year.

“Nobody has hurt themselves but there have been complaints,” another source told the paper.

A Corrie spokeswoman confirmed the teething troubles.

She said: “With any building project you are going to have snags that need sorting out. We’re across this one.”
