Government’s latest plans give Coronation Street and EastEnders green light to start filming

Soaps can resume filming as part of the government’s latest plans to emerge from lockdown, providing they conform to social distancing guidelines.

But now, the government has given some TV productions, including the soaps, the green light to return to filming as long as staff are able to adhere to newly set out safety conditions and comply with social distancing.

Though filming may be able to pick up, episodes will look very different as producers will be unable to plan crowded pub scenes for quite some time.

Boris Johnson and the government are gradually making announcements as part of a 50-page plan to ease lockdown restrictions.
