Coronation Street bosses were forced to halt production after a member of the cast tested positive for Covid-19 after being on set last week. 

The long-running soap had to briefly shut down certain areas of the set for a deep clean, after the coronavirus positive actor had been on set.

It has been reported that although certain areas were closed down it did not affect filming due to the soap’s strict two-metre distancing rules, according to The Guardian.
