Coronation Street boss reveals Christmas fight and more festive storyline teasers

Iain MacLeod, the producer of Coronation Street, has promised one of the “silliest fights” in television history, as well as more holiday spoilers.

During this month’s episodes, viewers can expect love drama for Fiz and Tyrone on Christmas Day, a long-awaited breakthrough for Sam Blakeman, and a tense meeting between the Platts and Barlows.

But, as MacLeod revealed in a recent interview with Digital Spy and other media, the cobblestones are in for even more drama and merriment over the holidays.


“It’s actually quite merry. Some soaps have a reputation of going all out for Christmas, going huge, dark, and Gothic, and we’ve dabbled in that, but I think it’s fair to say this year is more akin to a conventional Coronation Street Christmas “According to the producer.

“It’s quite amusing at times. It’s both hilarious and uplifting, and it’s a lot of fun. This year, there’s a really strong community vibe, and we were fortunate to film it when there was a window of opportunity to do some stuff with actors who didn’t have to be two metres apart all of the time.

“It has more of a Coronation Street community on the cobblestones vibe to it than prior Christmases – certainly last Christmas.” We couldn’t do that last year because we were shooting it under the most stringent of conditions. This year, though, it’s really joyful and community-focused, as well as family-focused.”

One of the lighter moments will reportedly involve a brawl in Weatherfield that spectators will remember.

“It has one of the most ridiculous battles I’ve ever seen in anything. This is where the iconic sentence “smell my marigold” comes in. I’ll leave it to you to figure out what that could mean. But, I have to admit, it’s a tremendously good hour of television “He made fun of her.

“Because everything is so far in advance on television, I watched it when I wasn’t feeling particularly festive. I saw it in mid-November, not feeling particularly merry, and at the end, I had a lump in my throat the size of a mince pie! It was just uplifting, causing tears of joy rather than tears of sadness. It was nothing short of a miracle. So I’m hoping that the audience enjoys it as much as I did.”
