Coronation Street star Daniel Brocklebank has admitted he got emotional as he reunited with his work colleagues.
The actor, who plays Billy Mayhew, posted a picture to his Instagram account alongside Alison King who plays Carla Connor, and an ITV staff member.
He captioned the post: “First time I’ve been able to pop into work and the first time I’ve seen these beautiful faces in months!
“I’m not going to lie, I may have shed a joyful tear or two @coronationstreet.”
His fellow Corrie stars commented on the post.
Charlie De Melo, who plays Imran Habeeb wrote: “It was a joy seeing you darlin’. All too briefly but beers next week (at a distance) for sure.”
Colson Smith, who plays Craig Tinker, commented: “What an incredible place to work.”
Returning to filming
Coronation Street started filming again last week after a three month break.
I’m not going to lie, I may have shed a joyful tear or two.
However it has been revealed the break has caused some changes to upcoming events and storylines.
At the end of 2020, the show will be celebrating its 60th anniversary. However the ‘Hollywood stunt’ which was going to be part of the soap’s milestone, had to be scrapped.
Corrie boss Iain MacLeod revealed it was because they didn’t have time to build and install what they originally planned.
But despite having to adhere to social distancing rules, Iain explained that they are still able to do stunts and they’re currently working on their first post-pandemic car stunt.
