EVEN THOUGH THE show hasn’t been filmed for quite some time, Coronation Street and some of the other popular British soaps have stayed on the air throughout the crisis. 

They may be fast running out of material to put on our screens, but show runners said on Monday that it will resume filming next week as restrictions ease in the UK. 

With that in mind, how well do you know your Coronation Street characters?
