ITV News

ITV Wales broadcast the PM's speech then had their own ITV news special presented by Andrea Byrne which included our first minister speaking.

Has to be the first ITV Wales News special outside of the standard slots in quite some time.

Yes I cant remember the last time ITV Wales opted out of the national ITV News with their own programme. They should have done when restrictions were eased the first time around and Wales had a totally different set of rules to England. We weren't allowed to travel for example and even when we could it was limited to 5 miles for quite some time.

Coronation Street

Loved last nights episode especially the nod to the past - opening scene with the girls, Rita saying 'another fine mess you've got me into' - which was said by Hilda to Stan when they got locked out out of number 13 in 1977, Rita saying about the knackers yard which was Elsie's first line in 1960. The voiceovers and mentions of Elsie, Hilda, Annie Walker, Betty, Deirdre and Mavis. I was slightly disappointed that they didn't make it to Blackpool, Corrie and Blackpool always go well together. But it was still a fabulous episode.

Evelyn one of the best new characters of recent years and im liking Nina as well.

I loved the end credits a shame they didn't use the original theme tune that would have made it even better.

I think an episode like this would be much better for the 60th rather than another episode like the 50th.
