Behind the scenes at Dane's Corrie funeral tonight


Tonight in Coronation Street, it's Dane's funeral. Dane's the dad of Clayton, Shona's son. And if you'd like to know where the funeral was filmed, it was at St. Andrew's Church in Radcliffe.

Rev Joanna McKee told This is Lancashire: "We’re really excited about the airing tonight. The cast and production team were brilliant to work with and really looked after the building and made those of us who were hosting a real part of the event.

"At the time of filming, we had two real policemen on site as Corrie were filming an incident outside and they needed to be on hand in case the general public phoned up reporting violence in the graveyard!"

While nearby St Mary's Church, in Prestwich, has been the location of many a Coronation Street wedding and funeral, this was a first for Grade II listed St Andrew's.

All very nice, but surely a church funeral is unlikely for a criminal and drug addict/dealer?
