Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod said: "One of the key things that has changed in Manchester is vape shops and barbers and it felt like having a hipster barbers totally plays into David and Nick's idea of themselves as upwardly mobile young gentlemen.

"It's also a place for our young cast to go in and drink beer but characters like Ken and Roy would also go in, thinking it was an Edwardian throwback.

"I want somewhere where you have Roy and Adam in adjacent chairs, shooting the breeze."

And as for the name?

Iain said: "We sat for hours trying to come up with puns for the name - we have settled on Trim Up North.It's on Victoria Street and has a hipster vibe. It's ace."
