The team of Coronation Street has announced a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to watch an upcoming episode alongside cast member Todd Boyce, who plays the nefarious Stephen Reid.
Fans have spent months wondering when Stephen’s sins will finally catch up with him, and it appears that the tale will be wrapping up soon, with fans able to learn whether Stephen will face his comeuppance or escape prosecution alongside the guy himself.
On Friday, October 13, daring fans may join Todd Boyce for a live screening of that evening’s episode on ITV’s Coronation Street Experience.
The evening, which will be hosted by ‘Soap Queen’ Sharon Marshall, will honor the legacy of Corrie and its most recent villain.
Following the episode’s screening, viewers will be treated to an exclusive Q&A session with Todd, where they will learn what it’s like to play Corrie’s latest villain.
Premium ticket holders will also have the opportunity to meet Todd and pose for photos behind a copy of the Rovers Return bar.
‘We know the fans want the possibility to connect more closely with our programs, and at Corrie our new visitor centre allows us precisely that,’ said ITV’s Controller of Global Brand Licensing (UK), James Penfold.
‘It’s amazing for all of us to be able to provide fans with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
‘This event marks the beginning of a series of unique evenings that we hope will not only provide fans with memories to last a lifetime, but will also provide our cast and crew with the opportunity to meet the people who make the show what it is, our viewers.’
‘I can’t wait to watch our followers watch me, with me, as my plot goes towards one of its biggest moments yet!’ says Todd Boyce of the upcoming event.That said, I’m a little worried about their reaction – they’re all aware of Stephen’s activities; I’m just hope Sharon is as wonderful a bodyguard as I know she would be a host!’
The Coronation Street Experience website will sell tickets for the event beginning today (September 13).
Are you courageous enough?
