The Duchess of Cornwall to visit Coronation Street

Friday January 22, 2010

Next month Camilla will follow in her husband Prince Charles' footsteps as she takes a stroll down Coronation Street.

On February 4, the Duchess, who is a fan of the programme, plans to visit the Manchester set, where she will meet with the stars and watch a scene being filmed.

But unlike her husband, who made a cameo in 2000, she won't appear on the small screen.

The popular soap recently beat EastEnders to win Best Serial Drama at the National TV Awards, and now continues its anniversary celebration with the royal visit.

"We are very honoured. It's the perfect beginning to our 50th anniversary year," said ITV director John Whiston.
