Snow comes to Coronation Street as Weatherfield transforms into winter wonderland

As snow sweeps the north of England today, even soap land wasn’t immune from the January chill.

The set of Coronation Street was transformed into a winter wonderland as thick flakes rained down on the cobbles.

The official Corrie Twitter account shared stunning pictures from the set which showed the famous street bearing a white blanket and even more snow settled on the rooftops.

There was even a snowman residing in the Platt family’s front garden.

"WEATHERfield Report: It’s snowing on the Cobbles!" read the tweet, which was swiftly ‘liked’ by thousands of impressed fans.

It is understood that filming at the MediaCity studios in Trafford will continue on as usual for the cast and crew with only a few outdoor scenes rescheduled.

Earlier this week, the Met Office warned Britain would face a ‘very significant snowfall’ with temperatures set to plunge to minus 10 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country.

On Wednesday Manchester Airport and Liverpool Airport closed their runways, but both have since reopened.

While there were reported to have been 214 school closures across Greater Manchester.

In March last year, former series producer Kate Oates unveiled new Corrie set Victoria Street , which was the first expansion in the show’s 57 year history.

The revamped set is home to a tattoo parlour, snookerhall and a Costa Coffee shop.

Corrie hasn’t always been filmed in MediaCity. It was formerly located at the Granada Studios in Quay Street, moving over to the new location in 2014.
