There's an excellent interview with Alison King, who plays Coronation Street's Carla Connor, in The Sunday Mirror. Alison talks about the siege on the Street and the explosion in the knicker factory, which kills off two Corrie characters. Read the full interview here.
Now that the story about the fire at the factory is out in the public domain and the Mirror has pictures of the factory up in flames, I feel it safe to blog this picture below I took on our visit to the Street set last weekend (ed. May 2010). It was a shock to see Underworld in such a state, but here it is, fire-damaged and boarded up. Looks like there's some great, explosive scenes to come in Coronation Street.
