Coronation Street announces special real-life event for Stephen Reid storyline - and you can attend

Coronation Street has announced a special live event for Stephen Reid’s storyline, with fans being given the chance to attend.

The businessman has turned to criminal ways this year as he killed off the competition, with his arc set to come to a close in the coming weeks.

To celebrate the culmination of the dramatic storyline, ITV has announced the Coronation Street Experience, which gives fans the opportunity to view the finale with actor Todd Boyce himself, who debuted as Stephen in 1996.

The event will take place on Friday October 13, with proceedings being hosted by “Soap Queen” Sharon Marshall. Following a live screening of the episode, fans will be able to ask Boyce questions in a group Q+A session.

“I can’t wait to watch our fans watch me, with me, as my storyline heads towards one of its biggest moments yet” said Boyce of the event. “That said, I’m slightly nervous at their reaction - they all know what Stephen’s been up to, I’m just hoping Sharon is as good a bodyguard as I know she will be a host.”

“We know the viewers want the chance to connect more closely with our programmes and at Corrie our new visitor centre gives us the opportunity to do just that,” added James Penfold, ITV’s Controller of Global Brand Licensing (UK).

“It’s exciting for us to give fans the chance to experience something unique. This event is the start of a series of special evenings which we hope will not only give fans memories for a lifetime, [but] also give our cast and crew the chance to meet the people who make the show what it is,” he continued.

Tickets for the Coronation Street Experience can be purchased here.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
