A little while ago, we had an exclusive interview with Coronation Street Story Associate Furquan Akhtar. You can read all about him here and find out what he does on our favourite show.
Now, Furquan's been interviewed on BBC Radio Manchester. He talks about his work as a Story Associate on Corrie, what he does and how he does it. It's very interesting stuff indeed. He says there are 18 current writers on Corrie and he has to remind himself it's not real life!
Furquan reveals a little about the new Muslim family that will be joining Coronation Street too.
You can listen to the interview here. Furquan comes in around the 44 minutes mark.
