New online-only Corrie and Emmerdale drama planned

Coronation Street and Emmerdale are creating a raft of new ‘webisodes’ starring the main cast, which fans will only be able to view online.

Following the success of exclusive online-only content during the tram crash storyline, ITV has commissioned 10 webisodes about Ken and Deirdre in Coronation Street.

The 10 three-minute episodes are called Ken and Deidre’s Bedtime Stories, showing previously unseen antics in the Barlows’ bedroom.

From the couple’s pillow talk and arguments to snoring and night-time natter, the webisodes will portray them like never before. The first sees Deidre hoping for a cuddle, but her night cream puts Ken off, driving him further into his highbrow novel.

The new content is designed to provide creative extensions to storylines as seen on screen and the Ken and Deirdre dramas are written by award-winning writer Johnathan Harvey.

The webisodes will be available exclusively online at every Monday from Valentine’s Day.
