Steve Masters, General Manager at Coronation Street The Tour said: “Taking a tour of Coronation Street is a real treat for many fans and we often hear guests talking about their favourite characters and storylines from the show.

“With the launch of our new Star Tours - and the first of the series taking place in just a few weeks - guests now have the chance to meet someone from the show and we can’t wait to see their faces!”

Wigan has strong links to Coronation Street. A number of locally-born actors have starred in the show including Kym Marsh, John Lloyd-Fillingham and Jennifer Moss, while the screenwriter Brian Finch penned more than 300 episodes.
