Coronation Street to air one hour special before return to six episodes a week

August 28, 2020

CORONATION Street will air a special one-hour episode before increasing to six editions a week.

The ITV soap will have an hour-long special at 7.30pm on Friday September 11.

It airs the same week EastEnders returns to our screens on BBC1, but there will not be a direct head-to-head clash because the Beeb has moved the regular time slot for the Walford soap from 8pm to 8.30pm.

The double helping means Corrie will technically be on for four episodes that week, for the first time since schedules had to be drastically changed due to Covid restrictions.

It will come just before the soap increases its episode broadcasts back to six episodes per week.

And fans will be delighted as it means strung-out storylines like abusive Geoff Metcalfe being caught will soon ramp up.

Tim finally turns against his dad and opens up to Sally about the CCTV camera that Geoff had hidden in the house prior to Yasmeen’s arrest. 

Sally is horrified and tells Tim to open his eyes and see Geoff for the monster he is. 

Have Sally’s words finally sunk in for Tim?

And more importantly, will he go to the police about Geoff’s hidden camera and footage?

Joe Duttine – who plays Tim – has teased that his character is getting closer to turning against his dad Geoff as Yasmeen’s trial looms. 

The actor said: "Remember that Tim isn't aware of what the rest of the nation knows about Geoff.

"Tim only reacts to the interactions he has with his dad, and he doesn't want to believe that he could do anything wrong. Some families have to close ranks and protect their own, which is what Tim is doing. But I think Tim is starting to feel as if something isn't quite right."

The actor added: "Tim will see cracks in the picture he has of Geoff."

"It's a slow burn, and Tim's remaining loyal to his dad until the stage he can no longer do so. We may be getting closer to that stage.”
