‘Coronation Street' Stars Receive Pay Rises And ‘Dramatic Storyline' Promises

Members of the ‘Coronation Street’ cast have received new contracts, complete with bumper pay rises, according to reports.

The show’s bosses are reportedly worried that many of their stars could be considering whether to leave the show, so they’ve made new deals with 14 actors in order to make sure there isn’t a “mass exodus”.
