Coronation Street Bosses Cancel Christmas Party
Coronation Street bosses have cancelled their annual Christmas party much to the disappointment of the cast.
A James Bond-themed bash had been arranged at Manchester’s 235 Casino on December 12, but it has now been cancelled in a bid to cut costs.
“Everyone was looking forward to getting dressed up in black tie and Bond-girl glamour,” a show insider told The People.
“It should all have been paid for by Granada – but they cancelled it rather than ask people to pay for themselves.”
The source added that the cast is “up in arms” about the cancellation, saying: “Some of them are even suggesting they start working to rule from January by refusing to do any more than ten hours a day filming – even if it means abandoning scenes halfway through.”
