It’s a huge week for Coronation Street as the soap celebrates its 60th anniversary – kicking off a week of equally huge storylines which see one of its biggest plots of the year come to an end.
The soap is marking its 60th anniversary in style, airing the first ever episode from 1960 alongside the new ones – and fans of both Corrie and EastEnders will be left with a dilemma on Monday night as their episodes will clash – a rare occurrence in soapland.
But just what time should you tune in to Coronation Street and what’s going to happen tonight?
Here’s what you need to know…
What time is Coronation Street on tonight?
Coronation Street is on ITV tonight at its usual time of 7.30pm, but it’s serving up a bumper hour-long episode – meaning the final half-hour will clash with EastEnders on BBC One at 8pm.
In fact you’ve got a whole lot of Corrie for your money on tonight, as it’s followed by the special show Coronation Street: 60 Unforgettable Years on ITV at 8,30pm, looking back at the past six decades of the soap.
If you miss any of the action, you’ll be able to catch up via the ITV Hub.
What happens in Coronation Street tonight?
Tonight sees one of the biggest storylines of the year reach its dramatic conclusion, as Yasmeen (Shelley King)’s trial comes to an end.
The storyline involving Geoff (Ian Bartholomew)’s coercive control of Yasmeen – culminating in her ending up in court on an attempted murder charge – has kept viewers gripped, and took an unexpected twist last week when his ex-wife Elaine (Paula Wilcox) made a surprise appearance in the witness stand.
Monday night’s instalment will also see the residents come together against Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) and his plans for the street, while Daniel (Rob Mallard) discovers the truth about Adam (Sam Robertson) and Carla (Alison King).
