Russell Watson to sing at Corrie musical in Manchester

Following the news that Joe McElderry is joining the Coronation Street Musical 'Street of Dreams' in Newcastle, ITV have announced that singer Russell Watson will join the musical show in Manchester.

Salford-born Russell said: "It's an incredible privilege to be asked to be a part of something so amazing and unique.  Coronation Street was a prominent fixture in the Watson household whilst I was growing up so any opportunity to combine such an iconic brand with exquisite music is one I'd never hesitate in taking on. I'm so looking forward to coming home and joining old friends on stage - I doubt there'll be a dry eye in the house!"

Street of Dreams will premiere in Manchester before touring on to Dublin, Belfast and Newcastle later in May.
