Several 'Coronation Street' stars have formed a work choir to help boost morale on the set of the ITV soap
The cast of 'Coronation Street' have formed a work choir to boost morale on set.
Several stars including Kate Ford - who plays evil schemer Tracy Barlow in the ITV soap - Krissi Bohn (Jenna Kamara) and Lisa George (Beth Tinker) have joined in with the £3-a-head singalong sessions, which have been running for around a month and are also available for the crew.
'Corrie' was recently rocked after actors Michael LeVell and Bill Roache - who play Kevin Webster and Ken Barlow respectively - were both hit with sex offence charges, all of which they strenuously deny.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It's been a pretty tough few months on the Corrie set and spirits were very low.
"Obviously the trouble with Michael and Bill hit everyone incredibly hard.
"It was decided that everyone needed a fun pastime and someone suggested forming a choir.
"They have put a special room aside, and when the sing-alongs are in full swing you can really hear everyone belting out the tunes. Kate, Krissi and Lisa absolutely love it and they have got really involved with things."
What's more, several 'Corrie' stars were recently duped into promoting free gifts - unaware they were from a fake brand.
Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster), Catherine Tyldesley (Eva Price) and Georgia May Foote (Katy Armstrong), were tricked into plugging products by investigators who set up a bogus company called Puttana Aziendale - Italian for "corporate wh**e" - at a "gifting event" in Manchester.
