Coronation Street stars sign huge new contracts to stay on soap

Several cast members of Coronation Street have signed huge new contracts to keep them on soap.

William Roache (Ken Barlow), Sally Dynevor (Sally Metcalfe), Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald), Sue Cleaver (Eileen Grimshaw) and Michael Le Vell (Kevin Webster) have all secured new deals to stay on the serial drama until at least 2021.

‘These are the lifeblood of the show and, frankly, it would not be Corrie without them’, a source told The Sun.

‘Despite a difficult year, bosses were delighted when they agreed deals, keeping them on screen until at least 2021.

‘Between them, they have given nearly 200 years to the show.’

The ITV soap is set to celebrate its 60th anniversary next week, and — in typical Corrie fashion — it will be a week that viewers will likely never forget.

Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) sets out to demolish the cobbles, but several of the street’s mainstays — including Ken and Kevin — unite in an effort to prevent him from doing so.

Meanwhile, the verdict is in for Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King), but will she be found guilty or not guilty?

Now, that is the question!

What’s more, what does the future hold for Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew)? Will he pay for what he’s done?
