Production of Coronation Street has shut down in Manchester in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. ITV has adjusted its broadcast and will only air 3 episodes in the UK beginning March 30. CBC has decided to follow the same model and will begin only broadcasting 3 episodes a week instead of 6.
Monday (April 13): Bernie’s shocked to find Gemma in the backyard clearly distressed. Nick calls at the rehab unit in Leeds. Ken sneaks Eccles into Sillwaters for the night.
Tuesday (April 14): Maria sees through David’s bravado. Evelyn summons Claudia for another makeover. Bernie accompanies Gemma to see Dr. Gaddas.
Thursday (April 16): Ken confronts Charles over the extortionate fine. Evelyn meets up with Arthur. Nick urges David not to give up on his marriage.
Note: CBC will broadcast Coronation Street on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday this week as a news special covering the COVID-19 pandemic will air on Wednesday.
Coming up on Coronation Street during the week of April 20:
- David consults Imran about divorcing Shona.
