I know you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting to be gripped by this news, so at long last, here it is: the big press release about the fire that's about to sweep through the Rovers. Not only that but lots of fab pictures too.
"This is the dramatic moment when Britain’s most famous pub goes up in flames - with two people trapped inside!
As these pictures of the inferno show, the fire inside the Rovers Return quickly takes hold whilst stunned Coronation Street residents watch in horror.
Flames billow out of the windows as a desperate Stella Price screams for help upstairs and Sunita Alahan lies unconscious in the basement.
But who is responsible for the blaze which will eventually claim two lives?
The action packed episodes took three weeks to film and involved stunt doubles, a special effects team and specialist fire crews.
By the end of the week the iconic Rovers Return is a burnt out shell leaving friends and neighbours to try and come to terms with the shocking events.
And in the coming weeks shock turns to anger as it becomes clear that the fire was arson with Sunita Alahan as the number one suspect!
“When I finished filming the fire I cried. I thought how awful it must be to actually be in that kind of disaster. It must be horrific because the heat was horrendous. I could feel the burn. You could actually feel your skin burning. I had a bucket of cold water for me to cool down in because I was that hot; hot beyond belief.”
“It was quite frightening. I didn’t think it would be as scary as it actually was! To be honest with you I tried not to think about it, which was a good idea. I spent my time talking to the special effects team instead. I did feel very protected by everyone there. There were lots of firemen there and lots of people safeguarding. And of course I had the rest of the cast and crew with me too! Everyone was really supportive and it really felt like a real fire.”"
For more pictures of the dramatic scenes, go here to the official ITV Coronation Street site. I don't know how I feel about this storyline, I'm not one for the big showpieces even though Corrie do them so well, and it's difficult to get all heated up about it when I know I'll be experiencing heat of a different kind when it's broadcast, lying on a sunlounger in lovely Lanzarote. Are you looking forward to it?
