Spot the Corrie prop - July 1st 2020

Congratulations this week go to Helen who was the only person to guess that last week's lovely vases can be found in Yasmeen's kitchen. Well done!

For this week's prop puzzle we've got another vase. All you have to do is tell us whereabouts on Coronation Street you would find it.
