Keith Duffy has said that Coronation Street will air a live episode to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The actor revealed the news during an appearance on ITV1's Magic Numbers, following an admission from producer Phil Collinson in June that he was considering staging a live episode.

Host Stephen Mulhern asked: "Is it true that they are definitely going to do a live episode to celebrate the 50th [anniversary]?"

Duffy replied: "I don't know if I'm allowed to tell you this, but yes, they are!"

Earlier this month, The People reported that producers were planning a live episode which would focus on the aftermath of the forthcoming tram crash stunt.

Speaking at the time, a source said: "There's a real buzz around the live episode. Everyone wants things to go off without a single cock-up - no messed-up line or moving dead body."

The show celebrates its 50th birthday in December. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
