The First Time They Filmed Overseas Was No Walk In The Park
Coronation Street didn’t shoot overseas or on location until 1974 when the women of Weatherfield were sent on a holiday to Majorca. You would think the actresses would have loved their time in the Balearic Islands, but they actually had a lot of complaints about the shoot.
The crew got to stay in a five-star hotel while the actresses had to stay in a two-star hotel. Also, their make-up room was located right next to an open sewer.
