Kevin Lygo, ITV's Director of Television, announced the exciting news today (29 June) and confessed that even he is an avid Corrie viewer!

He said: "I am a life-long fan of Coronation Street. The soaps are the cornerstone of the ITV schedule, and Coronation Street continues to produce some of the finest drama and comedy on television.

"It is a hugely important part of what has defined ITV throughout its history, and I want it to continue to be right at the heart of what ITV defines in years to come."

Kevin added: "As a viewer I have watched the soap as it has continued to evolve, entertain, and grip the nation with fantastic storylines and this move will be the next exciting chapter in Corrie's story."

The introduction of a sixth episode a week will mean the current Coronation Street set, which was opened in 2013, will be expanded. Corrie cast and crew were told of the exciting news today.
