Corrie filming ‘thrown into chaos’ as eight crying babies cause ‘nightmare’

Coronation Street has reportedly been facing filming problems with eight crying babies on set causing delays.

According to reports, the youngster actors are allegedly causing chaos for production staff and show's actors with their continuous crying.

The little ones are in a storyline featuring beloved Corrie characters Chesney Brown and Gemma Winter, who recently welcomed quadruplets into the world together.

Their babies are named Aled, Carys, Lilo and Bryn, and Coronation Street don't just need four actors for these roles.

The soap reportedly needs more than four baby actors for the roles so the young actors are not overworked.

The insider continued telling The Sun that the eight tots aren't making filming easy.

They added: "The problem is the babies start crying and the filming gets delayed. One starts crying then the others all follow.

"Another problem is that when the babies are on set and they start crying their mothers aren’t allowed to comfort their crying child as they can’t be allowed on set during filming as it’s against union rules."

One ITV source also chimed in: "We come to work to get away from our kids and now this."
