Lorna Laidlaw would 'love' Coronation Street live episode

Share article:

Lorna Laidlaw would "absolutely love" to star in a live episode to mark Coronation Street's 60th anniversary.

The former "Doctors" actress has joined the ITV soap as Aggie Bailey, and she is hoping to be able to show off her acting talents in a live ep next year when the legendary show celebrates a huge milestone.

She said: "I would absolutely love to do that.

"That's theatre isn't it? I would absolutely be buzzing to do something like that."

Lorna has "no idea" what's to come for her alter-ego after the next couple of weeks, when Aggie has to deal with the revelation that her husband Ed's (Trevor Michael Georges) gambling addiction has spiralled out of control.

She is quoted by Digital Spy as saying: "I'm going to be really honest, I have no idea what I'm doing.

"I literally have what I'm doing this week and what I'm doing next week and finding my way through the revelation of Ed's gambling and trying to get things back together."

Kym Marsh - who is departing the soap later this year - would love to see her co-stars take part in a live episode next year, too.

She said: "Jack P. Shepherd has hinted that "Corrie" will do a live episode for the 60th anniversary next year. Nothing has been confirmed yet but I think that would be great.

"I was involved in the last live episode and it was an adrenaline rush. Going live can be daunting but it was such a brilliant thing to be a part of.

"Sadly I won't be around for the 60th anniversary but I'll certainly be tuning in."

"Corrie" aired its first-ever live episode in 2000, with specials following in 2010 and 2015.

Jack - who plays David Platt - recently suggested the show should do it again to mark next year's huge milestone.

He previously said: "A live, we're doing a live! No, I just made that up! I assume it will be that!

"I love "em... A lot of the cast get petrified which is understandable. I like the buzz of it. It's really nice being on one of them, because everybody really gets an input, and feels part of it, much more than the day to day stuff.

"The night is amazing, with hundreds of people involved, and the after party. So yeah I like doing them. I've done three now. I was the first person on screen in the 40th one. I was kicking a ball."
