'Coronation Street's Steve McDonald and Lloyd Mullaney will star in a new online spin-off.
ITV will release four hilarious mini-episodes focusing on the cab drivers' late night antics inside the Streetcars' office.
The first episode of 'Streetcar Stories', titled 'The Stripper' - which is available on the 'Coronation Street' website today (03.02.14) - sees Steve (Simon Gregson) and Lloyd (Craig Charles) re-enact the classic Morecombe and Wise 'Breakfast' sketch.
The second episode will be released on Wednesday (05.02.14), followed by the third episode next Monday (10.02.14), which will introduce Streetcars' switchboard operator Fat Brenda's stunning young daughter.
The final instalment of 'Streetcar Stories' will then be released on Wednesday, February 12.
All four short episodes have been scripted by 'Coronation Street' writer Chris Fewtrell.
'Coronation Street' is riding high in the ratings at the moment and recently won Best Soap for the third year in a row at the National Television Awards.
Rumours recently circulated that 'Corrie' producers are secretly plotting a Canadian version of the soap.
A source said: "This is a secret project a group of our top writers have been working on for more than a year. They have already created the core cast of characters and have already written the early episodes."
