Princess Anne visits Coronation Street - all the pics!


The Princess Royal today (Monday March 20th) visited ITV Studios Coronation Street to meet cast and members of the production team involved in the soap opera’s acid attack storyline.

Her Royal Highness attended as Patron of The Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI), who have been advising the programme’s producers and writers.

The Princess Royal viewed some upcoming scenes before meeting with Producer Iain MacLeod, cast members Charlotte Jordan, Ryan Prescott, Andrew Still, Rob Mallard and Sally Ann Matthews. Script writers, members of the story team and make-up department were also on hand to speak to HRH Princess Anne about working on the plotline.







The Royal party were also given a guided tour of the Coronation Street set lead by Series producer, Iain MacLeod and John Whiston, Head of ITV in the North/MD Continuing Drama.  

Commenting on the visit, John said: “Working with ASTI on this storyline has been invaluable to all of us. HRH's patronage of the charity is clearly of huge importance to both Her Royal Highness and the charity and it was an absolute honour to have them join us at Coronation Street today.  The visit gave both cast and colleagues the chance to discuss how they have worked together to create and portray such a delicate and important storyline, an opportunity none of us will forget.

Also in attendance were acid attack survivor Sammear Hussein, Mrs Sharman Birtles MBE JP DL Vice Lord-Lieutenant and Councillor Chris Boyes Mayor of Trafford 

Coronation Street has been working alongside ASTI on the storyline where Daisy has fallen victim to a stalker, Justin, who is convinced he is in a relationship with her. Justin’s behaviour led him to be arrested, but he is released on bail. Daisy becomes the target of an acid attack on her wedding day when Justin, in an act of revenge, goes to the Rovers to ruin her special day.
