Coronation Street is to air a one-hour special next month.
The ITV soap is scheduled to air between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on September 11. But it’s not yet known what the main storylines will be in the ep.
EastEnders will return to air that week, on September 7, following an enforced break. But the BBC One soap’s Friday September 11 episode will air at 8.30pm, avoiding a cobbles clash.
Coronation Street and Emmerdale: Returning to six episodes
Last month, the channel confirmed both Corrie and Emmerdale will return to six episodes per week from mid-September, after reducing output when the coronavirus pandemic first began.
ITV said in a statement: “We’re very pleased to announce that Coronation Street and Emmerdale will resume airing the normal pattern of six episodes each week from mid-September.”
The channel also praised the soaps’ bosses for their “incredible work”.
They said: “This is testament to the incredible work that has been achieved in Manchester and Leeds by John Whiston, Managing Director of Continuing Drama and Head of ITV in the North for ITV Studios, and his dedicated and hard-working production teams, crews, writers and actors.
“Both shows continue to film safely whilst adhering to the health and safety guidelines issued by the film and TV industry.”
