Corrie gay wedding to screen on Royal Wedding day

Ooh, I do hope this spoiler is true from today's Daily Mirror.  The paper reckons that Coronation Street will screen its first gay wedding on the same day Prince William and Kate Middleton marry. The Street’s Sean Tully and Marcus Dent are rumoured to tie the knot on Friday April 29 in an hour-long special episode.

Thirty years ago, Corrie’s Ken and Deirdre Barlow’s wedding attracted 24 million viewers on the day Wills’ own parents Charles and Diana walked down the aisle at St Paul’s Cathedral. ITV bosses hope a similar number will be view this time.

A Corrie source said: “Top-brass think with the country in a frenzy over the royal wedding then it will be the perfect time to show Sean and Marcus tying the knot and trounce EastEnders.”

Should be good, just hope Anthony Cotton is not too OTT in the scenes.

I agree. Sometimes him + Becky just go way over whats needed.

A very PC gimmick... good grief! Good story idea - but better to have been on a different day.

It could be true of course, but Charlie Condou Tweeted that he hasn't even started filming yet!

Pepsi and Shirley are getting married on Eastenders that day too - I dread to think what Emmerdale has planned

Are we going to go through the anguish of those two trying to adopt a child as per Anna & Eddie or Steve and Becky? I sure hope not.

Seems a bit quick for them to be reunited and the relationship become solid enough to consider marriage - how long have they been apart again?

Beth said...

well they'd better think of bringing back Marcus soon then - It's almost the end of Feb now! If we are supposed to believe it's true love etc, better get a shift on you haven't got much time to convince us!

Ken and Deidre were married the same day as Charles and Diana so maybe they are trying to do the same thing again.
