There's always a dramatic Christmas on the cobbles!

ITV has commissioned a festive special called Corrie at Christmas.

The seasonal special of the long-running soap will be delving into six decades of archive to bring together some of the most memorable Christmas moments in Coronation Street's history.

The hour-long one-off will also feature interviews with cast members past and present with their own reflections on Corrie Christmases.

Previous festive shockers have included Annie Walker being visited by some old acquaintances, Hilda Ogden saying her goodbyes and the birth of David Platt.

Last year saw Sinead Tinker fear it was her last Christmas after her cancer battle.

Although the news looked positive in scans earlier this year, it's recently been announced that her prophecy was true and she will pass away this autumn after her cancer returns. 

It looks like Christmas 2019 will be a bleak one for her husband Daniel Osbourne.

An official air date for Corrie at Christmas has yet to be announced.
