The cast of 'Coronation Street' have been banned from sunbathing
'Coronation Street' bosses reportedly banned the cast from sunbathing after the UK was thrown into a heatwave this week.
The stars of the long-running show are said to be fuming after producers told them they weren't allowed to enjoy the sunshine after parts of Great Britain reached highs of 30 degrees because they were worried some members of the cast would have a summer glow in scenes being shot for the autumn.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "There was no getting sunburnt for the 'Corrie' cast.
"How would they explain they were all tanned and glowing and then if in the next scene it was pouring with rain? Some of the cast members were extremely disappointed that they were all missing out on the hottest day of the year."
And one person who was struggling with the strict soap rules was Shayne Ward - who portrays factory boss Aidan Connor - as he joked he was limited to just 30 seconds of vitamin D.
He said: "Thirty seconds of sun for me. Continuity rules."
However, the cast weren't stripped of all the summer fun as bosses reportedly brought in an ice cream van to keep them and hard-working camera crew cool in between takes.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time the cast have clashed with the bosses this year as they also reportedly locked horns when it was announced the soap will air six nights a week from next year.
