The day started with a book sale. Most of the 50th anniversary merchandise doesn’t come out until October and finding Corrie stuff in the shops is difficult so we always try and get a local trader to supply us with anything they have – and it’s brought to the hotel where it’s offered at a discount. Today we had books by Ken, Liz and Natalie, fridge magnets, the odd costume item and my new book called Lights, Camera, Location! which is a locations guide to over 100 film and TV shows shot in this part of England, including a big section on Corrie. It just came out last week so it was interesting to see what people thought of it.

Whilst at the studios we met the actors who play Jack, Sian, Sophie, Rosie, Fiz, Nick, Kevin, Peter, and Leanne and we also met Executive Producer Keiron Roberts and out-going Producer Kim Crowther, who both told us how much the international fans mean to the cast and crew.
The rest of the day was free – some people headed across the road to Liz Dawn’s pub to enjoy a pint and look at all the pictures on the walls, some went shopping. It had been an amazing day!
