Studio 1 - A In Vison Continuity Studio, used by many of the In Vision Continuity announcers for junctions and the late night news from the early Eighties, mothballed in about 1998 and became a storage cupboard.
Studio 4 - A small in vision continuity studio was mothballed, then converted into offices and now part of reception.
Studio 10 - Not in the studio complex. Studio 10 was at the Chelsea Palace Theatre, London and used for interviews and filming acts outside Manchester. It was sold by Granada in the 1960s.[36]
In addition to the original studios, there are other studios located around the complex. The Garden Studio is located in the garden, south of the tower, and is 477m and used for interview based programmes or press shoots.

Operating
Of the original studios four remain:[35]
Studio 2 - A small studio and newsroom housing Granada Reports and the northern operation of ITV News .[35]
Studio 6 - A compact studio measuring 414m (4,456 ft) currently housing The Jeremy Kyle Show.[35] It was intended to be mothballed to reduce maintenance costs in 2003, but was reprieved after programme production increased.[24]
Studio 8 - A medium-sized studio measuring 491m (5,285 ft) with a capacity of 240, historically has been used for filming quiz shows such as University Challenge, Mastermind, The Krypton Factor, Countdown and The Chase.[35]
Studio 12 - A large studio measuring 733m (7,889 ft) with a capacity of 524 is used for entertainment shows. The Beatles filmed their first television performance in this studio and the studio hosted the First Election Debate in 2010.[35]


I'm sure the Garden Studio was used for ITV Play, Granada Good Life and on top of it was where they had Granada Reports roof top Garden, which they did say a while back they will have a new one at Media City.

Has Kyle now moved in to Dock 10 too? It will be sad to see the sort of people who appear on that show running around the back of the studio complex like they do at Quay Street!


Kyle's shows from Dock 10 are already on air when he returned to work after recovering from cancer last month. They have a new open backstage area for guests where elements of the show now come from.

However, the scenes from the Quay Street corridors were infamous, such as doors being kicked in and a dressing room door being done over. There was even a scene from the Granada car park where JK chased after a guest.

The new set-up at Dock 10 appears to be designed to minimise damage caused by JK's guests.

2, 6, 8, 12 are still operating, but that's from Wikipedia. Are they still actually operating, or are they now mothballed?
