Coronation Street fan lays final cobble on new set

Manchester Evening News competition winner Denise Thomas joined Corrie cast members and Producer, Stuart Blackburn to lay the last official cobble on ITV's new Coronation Street set at MediaCityUK.

Whilst building continues across the site, the laying of the last cobble on the new street is an important milestone in the creation of the programme's new home.

Construction is expected to continue until the end of 2013. The programme continues to film at Quay Street until they move to MediaCityUK at a date to be agreed in due course.

(Pictured with Mrs Thomas are Georgia May Foote, Jennie McAlpine and Alan Halsall).

What a lucky lady. Wish I could have been there too!

What a great twist - a lot more exciting than laying the first cobble or flagstone (or whatever the typical thing is)! :)
