Coronation Street and Emmerdale to return to six episodes a week in September

The ITV soaps have put in strict health and safety controls to ensure production could resume safely during the pandemic.

They have been airing on a reduced schedule with just three episodes each week but now the teams behind the soaps are able to resume full production.

“Both shows continue to film safely whilst adhering to the health and safety guidelines issued by the film and TV industry.”

Both soaps managed to remain on air throughout the pandemic while rivals EastEnders and Hollyoaks have taken breaks.

EastEnders will return to four episodes a week in September and is writing in a time jump to explain the passing of time while the show was off air.
