'Coronation Street' is moving so that the set of the soap can finally become life-sized.
The Sun reported that the set, opened by the Queen in 1982, currently being used for the ITV1 soap is only three-quarters of real size, but it will be near to full-size for the first time at the new base.
The cobbles are moving from their Manchester base to a new home at a 7.7-acre site at Trafford Wharf in Salford Quays.
'Corrie' director Tony Prescott reportedly revealed: "We use camera tricks - you can do anything with a wide lens - to get it to look normal, but the new set will be scaled up."
ITV boss John Whiston added: "We will be using the same factory that made the old bricks and I will be making sure that each one is exactly the same as all the others.
