Aren't people allowed privacy?

I'm sure we'll know when the episodes currently filming are broadcast, because the character this actor plays will vanish for two weeks due to their self isolation. But for now, yeah, let them have their privacy.

As the show is filmed out of sequence, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll be ‘missing’ off screen for two consecutive weeks.

But that's practically business-as-usual for Coronation Street these days.

Quite possibly not, they'll likely be able to film their scenes when they return and slot them into the episodes. The days of as-live or in sequence filming are LONG gone.

I wonder how far production has now got ahead of broadcast, especially that they've resumed the normal broadcast schedule of 6 episodes a week. Presumably it wouldn't ordinarily be long before they started filming Christmas?

I presume they wouldn't have gone back to 6 a week unless they were sure that production was far enough ahead of broadcast and at a fast enough pace to allow it.

They returned to film in the first half of June and would have run out of episodes by early July? So i assume they were filming 6 per week on average from when they returned and by keeping it 3 times a week until Mid Sept has allowed them to build a backlog of 6 weeks. Christmas usually gets filmed around Mid October I think.

One thing I've noticed on the ITV3 repeats since we reached the point where the Cadbury's sponsorship started, the last note of the music on the end credits nearly always cuts off abruptly. I'm assuming that's because at that time sponsorship messages were attatched to the master tapes rather than played in separately, and they appeared between the credits and the endcap, so in editing them out we lose the very end of the theme tune.
