ITV soap Coronation Street is to be turned into an all-singing, all-dancing stage musical featuring some of the show's best-loved stars.

Julie Goodyear will reprise her role as Bet Lynch, while Kevin Kennedy who played Curly Watts, and William Roache who played Ken Barlow, will also appear.

They will take part in song and dance routines with a West End-style chorus.
