Coronation Street's base for 53 years at Granada studios in Manchester is to be opened to the public for six months from Saturday 5 April. But what will fans get to see when they explore Weatherfield? Corrie may have moved to a new set at MediaCityUK, but it seems there's plenty of history in the home they've left behind...
The tour kicks off in the green room, an area where crew members were not allowed to enter as it was exclusively set aside for show's cast to relax in and socialise. Pay attention to the actors' pigeon holes: there's a script for Ryan Thomas (Jason) on display and an area marked for 'Dame Antony Cotton'.
After this, it's on to the 'corridor of the stars' - or the actors' dressing rooms as they're more commonly known. There are three floors of dressing rooms, although only the ground floor is available to view. It's here that some of the longest-serving cast members had their sanctuaries. William Roache's is very close to the entrance to Stage One, as is Beverley Callard's (presumably for ease of access to the Rovers' set). Also note: plenty of Radio Times framed covers are on display.

Then it's on to costume and make-up where you'll see just how limited Roy Cropper's wardrobe is compared to the younger stars (his cardigan is from BHS, by the way). The male stars get 15 minutes in the make-up chair, the women 30 minutes.
