It's going to be chaos - loads of special effects on the cobbles and in the pub. will wants as much fire and explosion as the set can handle.

"They are even booting out the actors and crew early from filming so will's 20 dancers can rehearse.

"I'm staying very vague but I'm so excited about the stuff we're going to do this year. And I love tech, so it's going to be jam-packed with some awesome f***ing tech."
