Corrie's Georgia Taylor refuses to work weekends

Coronation Street's Georgia Taylor hopes bosses don't start making the cast work weekends now that they've decided to air six episodes every week from now on.

Fans of the long-running soap are thrilled they're able to get an extra 30-minute fix of the programme every week - something that came into play this week - after producers decided to make changes to the schedule in order to create more gripping storylines.

But, although the stars are looking forward to working on the new plots, the 37-year-old actress - who plays Toyah Battersby - hopes they're not required to work more hours.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Georgia - who rejoined the soap last year following a 13-year absence - said: "I hope it doesn't change and Saturdays and Sundays creep into work. They haven't so far so that keeps everyone's morale up."

And it's not just the schedule to get a shake up as the show's boss Kate Oates has confirmed that it will get a new park, restaurant and shops as part of a set expansion.

She said recently: "There will be a couple of new businesses and we're going to have a little park area. So not everything will happen at the Red Rec.

"Sometimes we say in the story office that if Maxine hadn't died where would people go to think - because it is Maxine's bench where people have their pensive moments. There may also be another eatery with a different kind of vibe. We have already got the cafe and bistro. It's nice to see a community feel.

"It does well for social dynamics if you've got people who were friends who are now colleagues or someone is someone's boss. It always adds a nice energy."
