Andy recently shared a picture from the show’s wrap party last year.

He captioned the post: “The wrap party in Australia, it’s mad to think the show is going to be done in the UK this year due to COVID but I’m really excited to watch it as I’m sure you all know how much of a massive fan I am of the show.

“It’s certainly going to be different but it’ll still be amazing as it always is, I’m sure.”

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
