Coronation Street fans are in for a treat - because show bosses have announced the chance to have a sleepover on the cobbles.
A specially built house, known as The Rovers' Annex, has been constructed on the show set in Manchester. It's in partnership with Airbnb, who are listing the once in a lifetime experience for two fans on their website for just £60, with the fee donated to charity.
Booking for the stay on 2 October 2021 opens Wednesday 26th May 1pm BST here.
"For one night only, Coronation Street will open the Cobbles to two guests, giving super-fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic location and adopt the Rovers Return as their next door neighbour for the evening as they stay at ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’, Coronation Street, M10," a statement from ITV explains.
"The self-contained pop-up house, with its red-bricked façade and double-glazed windows, will be situated in the heart of the street, next door to the famous Rovers Return Inn.
"During the stay guests will be taken on a private tour of the set followed by a hotpot dinner from the annexe whilst watching classic Corrie episodes, and if they’re lucky, a pint in the Rovers and breakfast from Roy’s Rolls may be on offer."
As well as all that, they'll have a chance to walk past iconic Street locations such as Audrey’s, Prestons Petals, the Kabin and even the infamous ginnel. You know, the little alley bit at the back (subject to many, many regional variations).
The Annex has been decorated in "classic Coronation Street style, taking inspiration from the Rovers Return B&B decor". There's a comfortable living area to relax in, with homage to Rovers' landlady Jenny Connors’ wood panelling and patterned wallpaper.
The living room has a dining table where guests can sit and enjoy their hotpot.
"At the centre of the living area guests will find a TV set up with hours’ worth of the most loved Coronation Street episodes from over the years," explains ITV.
"Fans will be able to watch the affair of the 80s - Deirdre Barlow’s tryst with Mike Baldwin - the disastrous tram crash a decade ago, and last year’s classic moment where David Platt discovers a sinkhole in his back garden.
"For a truly authentic experience, guests will enjoy all of their favourite moments from the soap, while sitting in the heart of the Street."
