Synchronicity is a wonderful thing. I recently received a message to my personal twitter account wishing me a happy birthday. It came from @michaeladamsuk and he said he was a big fan of the Coronation Street Blog. Immediately, my nephew's girlfriend joined in the conversation and it turns out that she is Michael's cousin! Michael had no idea of the family connection when he tweeted me and it's like we're all one big happy family now.
Anyway, Michael then went on to tell me he'd been invited in to see the Coronation Street set on a VIP visit and asked if I'd like a report and some pics after he'd been. Would I? Oh yes. Yes, yes, yes.
Michael has permission from ITV to share the pics and his report with the Coronation Street Blog. And so, with a million thanks to Michael for his write-up and for sharing his pictures, some of which I have included below.
And now, it's over to Michael...
1pm. 27th August.
though that's still top secret for the next few weeks!
