Don’t forget – Coronation Street airs an hour-long episode on Sunday 24 March!

The Street's schedule has been amended due to ITV football coverage


Coronation Street has a rare weekend showing on Sunday 24 March in an hour-long episode at 8pm to make up for Friday 22 March’s double bill being shunted for football coverage.


ITV’s live showing of England V Czech Republic in the Euro 2020 qualifiers on Friday pushed the usual two visits to Weatherfield out of the schedules, but fans can catch up on Sunday with a 60-minute edition to make up for the shortfall and get the soap back on track.

Carla Connor (Alison King) is wracked with guilt as the investigation begins into the roof collapse that killed Rana Habeeb (Bhacna Limbachia) which she blames herself for as she knew the structure was unsafe but ordered builder Gary Windass (Mikey North) to do a botch job in order to save money.


There’s a blast from the past when health and safety officer Wayne Hayes (Adam Barlow) arrives on the street to get to the bottom of what happened in the factory and is reunited with former foster parent Roy Cropper (David Neilson), who took the lad in almost 20 years ago along with late wife Hayley.


Just to confuse things even more, Corrie is subjected to further schedule changes in the coming week as it is dropped again on Monday 25 March for more sports coverage, returning to normal on Wednesday 27 March with its usual 7.30pm and 8.30pm double bill, then showing an hour-long edition instead of two split half-hours on Friday 29 March. Got that?
