Coronation Street started up production last week after filming was suspended back in March.

 Gotta get used to doing my own hair and make-up now.

But now new rules and guidelines have been put in place. These include staff keeping two metres apart and cast doing their own hair and make-up.

As the show reduced its weekly episodes, it means there should be enough episodes to ensure the soap won’t go off air.

What storylines can viewers look forward to?

Gary and Rick

Over the next few months there are plenty of storylines to look forward to. Including Gary Windass’s involvement with Rick Neelan.

Viewers know Samia’s alter ego Maria Connor is engaged to Gary. But what she doesn’t know is Gary murdered loan shark Rick and is responsible for the accident which killed Rana Habeeb.

Over the last few weeks, with Rick’s daughter Kelly and ex-wife Laura being around, Gary has been on edge.

As far as they’re aware, Rick fled abroad and Gary is the only one who can contact him.

Meanwhile, Adam Barlow has been getting close to Kelly and Laura to get information on his nemesis. But will the truth come out?

Geoff and Yasmeen

Another storyline which will continue through the year is Geoff and Yasmeen’s coercive control story.

Yasmeen recently pleaded not guilty to attempted murder after she stabbed abusive Geoff in the neck.

Meanwhile, Geoff is out of hospital letting people believe that Yasmeen is the abusive one.

But how will the storyline conclude?

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