Michelle Keegan accidentally spoils Coronation Street's 60th anniversary aftermath with set video

 MICHELLE Keegan appears to have accidentally spoiled the outcome of Coronation Street's 60th anniversary plot.

The actress, 33, returned to the iconic Manchester set as the current cast film Christmas episodes, and she shared a video of her tour on Instagram.

Reminiscing about her years on the soap, she wrote: "Look where I am… Feels like yesterday I was on these cobbles."

The star took a daytime stroll past Dev's off licence and The Kabin, and decorations could be seen hanging from the streetlights.

However eagle-eyed fans noticed that the buildings all remain standing – when the big 60th anniversary will see evil Ray Crosby bring the bulldozers in to redevelop the street,

Does this mean Ray's plan has failed? Or does he have a deadly plan B?

Michelle spent six years on the soap before she met a violent end at the hands of Rob Donovan.

The ex-con threw her off a balcony at the builders' yard after she threatened to expose his wrongdoing.


Despite Tina's grisly end, Michelle has expressed a desire to return to the show, suggesting a sensational resurrection could be on the cards at some point in the future.

She previously said: "I always say that I’d love to go back to Corrie – I was always a massive fan of Coronation Street growing up and I’ll never say never. You never know what happens in the future."

Last week soap stalwart Jack P Shepherd gave Corrie fans a first look at this year's Christmas on the cobbles.

The actor – who plays David Platt in the ITV soap – shared a glimpse of the famous street decked out in its festive lights as he filmed himself on a night shoot.

He walked down the cobbles with White Christmas playing, but the video gave no hint of the explosive storylines set to happen over the Yuletide period.

The soap's boss, Iain Macleod, recently told The Sun Online that they were still in a position to film normally for Christmas but had a back-up possibility of filming in a bubble if lockdown rules interfered.

He said: "The bubble is still there as a contingency. I don’t want to jinx things but at the moment we are on course to hit the 60th and Christmas – it will therefore be narrative.

"Assuming everything remains as it is, big story peaks and arcs rather than a standalone.

"We are very agile as a genre, we can change tack extremely quickly so if it got to the point where we can’t film Christmas, we would change course and shoot a standalone episode.

"But at the moment, fingers crossed, we shouldn’t need to."

He also spoke about the changes required due to the pandemic.

"It’s been mostly changing things around to simplify things," he said.

"There was a high profile week planned with a location shoot and that ended up in the bin.

"The story remained we just had to refigure and retained the big set piece – it’s going to happen later in the year around Christmas. That was our only big casualty – you can work out most things.

"Kissing, punch ups, affairs are challenging but there are many verbal ways we can get around things like fighting.

"There are many ways to imply liaisons without showing anything. We are just using old techniques because of the fact we can’t have physical intimacy."
