Coronation Street launches charity appeal

Coronation Street actors posed on the cobbles in charity T-shirts to mark the official launch of the soap's 50th anniversary appeal.

Michelle Keegan, Debbie Rush and Antony Cotton showed their support for Cancer Research UK, the NSPCC and Manchester's The Christie cancer centre - the three British charities picked by the cast earlier this year.

Coronation Street's executive producer Kieran Roberts said: "During 50 years of storylines, Coronation Street has covered an enormous range of social issues. As part of our 50th anniversary activities, the cast and crew felt it was important to give something back in the form of an official appeal. The three charities nominated carry out extraordinary work and we want to support them as much as possible over our anniversary months. It would be fantastic to see our viewers join in wherever they can - so that our anniversary is not just a wonderful celebration, but also makes a difference".
