It has been reported that Coronation Street won’t reference the coronavirus pandemic in future episodes.

Recently Coronation Street stopped production due to the ongoing health crisis and episodes were reduced in order to make sure there are plenty to air until filming resumes.

However it has now been reported that the coronavirus pandemic won’t be mentioned in upcoming episodes once filming resumes.

An insider told The Sun Online: “They were finishing scenes that had already been written, so there are no references to social distancing and the like.

“As the episodes won’t air until the summer they wouldn’t have known and still don’t know now – what the situation is going to be by then.

“Once production begins again then the writers can decide how to reference the pandemic – hopefully in the past tense.”

Entertainment Daily! has contacted Coronation Street for Comment.

Soaps regularly reference news events with last minute add-ins, though so far none have mentioned coronavirus apart from Holby City.

Fans were impressed when they inserted a reference to what was going on worldwide when CEO Max McGerry said she had to update the team on the issue.
