A limited edition version of the Rovers Return favourite has been made available to raise funds for the soap's 50th Anniversary Appeal. The Manchester Evening News reports that proceeds will be split between three charities - Cancer Research UK, the NSPCC and The Christie - each chosen by the cast.
"We wanted to celebrate the anniversary of Coronation Street by raising money for its charity appeal, so we came up with the hot pot meal idea," Brendan Hennessey, the hotel's manager, said.
"It means that visitors from abroad and around the UK can get involved but, more importantly, so can the locals from Manchester - most of whom have grown up watching the Rovers' famous hot pots on their TV screens."
Corrie's executive producer Kieran Roberts added: "As part of our 50th anniversary activities the cast and crew felt it was important to give something back in the form of an official appeal."
