After years of speculation it's been confirmed that a whole new Corrie set will be built on land next to the Imperial War Museum of the North, which borders the Salford Quays area. A bridge is currently being built across the Manchester Ship Canal which will link the Corrie site with the MediaCity development which will house new Granada offices and facilities. This means that ITV and the BBC will, in effect, share some facilities.
We're waiting to hear what will happen to the current outdoor set - will it be demolished? Will it open as a tourist attraction? We wait further news!
