Coronation Street producer Phil Collinson has signalled that he is axing a number of young stars, a source claims.

According to The People, Collinson believes that the serial is becoming too similar to Channel 4's Hollyoaks.

"Phil feels Corrie has become too much like a teen soap like Hollyoaks," an insider claimed.

Chesney Battersby-Brown (Sam Aston), Ryan Connor (Ben Thompson) and Gary Windass (Mikey North) may be written out of the show, the report says. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
