Kym Lomas and Brooke Vincent were also present at the soap's new home, having moved from Quay Street to Media City in Salford which took two years to build!

It's the fifth incarnation of TV's most famous street.

Filming will begin there early next year, although Michelle will not have long left at the soap. She confirmed this week that her character Tina McIntyre will be killed off in 2014.
