Coronation Street fan? Then you’ll be DELIGHTED with this news

Corrie fans, get ready to see a whole lot more of the street's stars!

The adored soap has just announced it will be broadcasting one more episode each week – that brings it up to six episodes every week.

The drama already graces our screens twice on Monday and Friday, and again on a Wednesday.

Coming in 2017, ITV's director of television Kevin Lygo said the soap is "high-quality" and has a "hugely loyal audience."

"The soaps are the cornerstone of the ITV schedule, and Coronation Street continues to produce some of the finest drama and comedy on television. It is a hugely important part of what has defined ITV throughout its history, and I want it to continue to be right at the heart of what ITV defines in years to come."
