In this special 60th ANNIVERSARY WEEK three one hour episodes will bring stories to a gripping climax and launch new ones to take us into 2021 and beyond.
With Yasmeen on trial charged with Geoff’s attempted murder, this week will see the end of her trial. Will justice be done or is the nightmare only just beginning for Yasmeen and Alya?
Meanwhile, Adam and Carla battle to keep the shameful secret that will ruin their lives and those around them. Nothing stays quiet for long in soaps though and as the week progresses the truth about what they have done threatens to destroy them.
At the centre of the anniversary week drama is of course Coronation Street itself as the residents unite to save the cobbles from the dastardly dealings of Ray Crosby. Having bought up most of the property and businesses in the area, Ray is ready to flatten the lot to make way for his new development. As the bulldozers arrive on the cobbles the race is on to save Britain’s most famous street and will Kevin find out the truth about Debbie’s part in it all?

IT’S JUDGEMENT DAY FOR YASMEEN As the trial draws to a close will some damning new evidence see justice be done or is the nightmare just beginning for Yasmeen and Alya? As the barristers deliver their closing speeches, Yasmeen stares nervously ahead.
THE RESIDENTS WON’T BE BULLDOZED Ken unwittingly reveals to Debbie how this afternoon they’ll be lodging an application to have the brewery listed and thus saving it from the bulldozer.

On the street, Abi, Kevin, Brian, Cathy, David, Ken, Rita and Shona watch with horror as a bulldozer heads towards the brewery. Ray gives them a satisfied grin.
