Coronation Street, ITV

Coronation Street stars Colson Smith, Jack P. Shepherd and Ben Price have announced that they will be swapping the cobbles for the stage, with a live show of their podcast.

The three Corrie stars began their Sofa Cinema Club podcast back in 2019. The podcast was an opportunity for them to “get together and educate each other about films”.

After a successful live show of their podcast last year, the trio have now announced on Instagram that they will be taking to the stage for a second headline show. The show will take place at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester on May 11.

Coronation Street: Colson Smith announces podcast news with co-stars

In the announcement, Colson admitted he was “bricking it” about performing in front of a live audience on the upcoming show. Last year, demand for tickets was so high that they sold out after just 48 hours.

“Please don’t by a ticket,” he joked, with Ben agreeing.

Ben then joked that fans can enjoy dinner with the trio before the show at the ‘Nando’s next door’ to the theatre.

Corrie stars storylines

The live show is sure to keep the actors on their toes, as all three have been involved in some big Corrie storylines in the last year.

Last year, Colson’s character Craig Tinker was supporting Faye Windass (Ellie Leach). She received an early menopause diagnosis.

Nick Tilsley was recently forced to come clean to Leanne about drug dealer Harvey Gaskell’s involvement with the Bistro.
