When you're watching Coronation Street tonight, look out for the Church Inn. It's a pub in Mobberley in Cheshire and features on Corrie tomorrow night.
The pub was home to Jack P Shepherd (David Platt) and Graeme Proctor (Craig Gazey) on Monday, February 8, as they came together to try and find a way to free Gail from jail. Pub owner Stephen Bedford said the pub was a hive of activity, with more than 50 production staff heading down to the village for the one-day shoot.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to be in something like that and be seen by so many millions of people,” he said. “The locations manager phoned up and asked if they could have the pub for a day’s shoot. I have done similar at other places before, so I knew we weren’t on the end of a wind-up.”
