Coronation Street fans can enjoy an exciting soap holiday next year, which includes the chance to walk down the cobbles and meet popular cast member Mikey North.
The expert team at Inside Soap magazine have created the special weekend in Salford and Manchester, where viewers will be able to walk in the footsteps of the ITV show's popular characters.
Mikey, who plays bad boy Gary Windass, will join fans on their first evening for a drinks reception at their hotel in Salford Quays.
In an informal chat hosted by the Inside Soap team, Mikey will talk about his soap highlights and wider career, followed by a rare chance for a photo opportunity and autograph signing.
The following day, fans will get their chance to visit the official 'Coronation Street Experience', which includes the opportunity to walk down the iconic cobbles and see some of the show's familiar backdrops.
Next up, there's a trip to the show's official exhibition, which features replica sets of the Rovers Return and Roy's Rolls. It also features some of the props and costumes that have appeared on Corrie over the years.
The soap fun doesn't stop there, as fans will then be taken on a guided tour around real-life locations in Salford and Manchester which have connections to memorable storylines.
There'll also be a visit to Annie's Restaurant, owned by Corrie star Jennie McAlpine (Fiz Dobbs) and her husband, for afternoon tea and a glass of prosecco.
