There's a very special Coronation Street documentary airing this Christmas.

The one-off documentary Coronation Street At Christmas will mark the best holiday seasons in Weatherfield over the last not-quite-six decades.

Coronation Street originally launched in December 1960 and this festive special for ITV delves into the show's incredible archive to showcase storylines which have stopped millions of viewers in their tracks over the festive season.

Narrated by beloved former cast member, Sue Johnston, Coronation Street At Christmas viewers will be entertained and moved with memories of Christmases past - from betrayals and break ups to weddings, babies and pub singalongs.

Fans will hear from cast past and present who bring life to the characters with their memories and reflections of some of the biggest moments on the Street.

Joy, warmth and humour will run through, alongside the pivotal moments of pioneering drama and tragedy. With contributions from the show’s stars over the years including Barbara Knox, Chris Gascoyne, William Roache, Thelma Barlow, Jimmi Harkishin, Simon Gregson, Kate Ford, Sue Nicholls, Jack P Shepherd, Tupele Dorgu, Antony Cotton, Jane Danson, Jennie McAlpine, Kevin Kennedy and Julie Goodyear, this is set to be an unmissable documentary.

  • Coronation Street At Christmas will air on ITV on Friday, December 20 at 8.30pm.
