'Coronation Street' will celebrate the 60th year of Queen Elizabeth's ascension to the throne with a massive street party
'Coronation Street' will celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee with a massive street party.
The cast and crew have already shot the scenes for a special episode, with "fun and games" promised for viewers.
A source told InsideSoap magazine: "'Coronation Street' wanted to do something traditional and fun in honour of Her Majesty. It'll be a great episode for the viewers, especially as so many of their favourites are getting involved in all the fun and games."
Members of the cast have been spotted dressed up for the occasion, with Kylie (Paula Lane) in an Amy Winehouse outfit and Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) as John Lennon.
The source added: "These episodes will have something for everyone!"
The storyline will run alongside the wedding drama experienced by Rita Sullivan (Barbar Knox).
Discussing the nuptials of the character and Dennis Tanner (Philip Lowrie), an insider said: "In traditional 'Corrie' style, this'll surely be a wedding day to remember with plenty of drama.
"The producer, Phil Collinson, has already revealed that Rita's going to be kidnapped - so it'll be touch and go as to whether she does become Mrs. Tanner.
"Everyone will be hoping that Rita's special day won't be ruined. She and Dennis are meant to be together, so it'll be heartbreaking if she doesn't get to walk up the aisle again."
