Coronation Street is going to turn 60 years old next year (has it really been that long since the 50th?!), and you know that the ITV soap is going to go all-out to celebrate.

While a lot of plans are under wraps at the moment, last month there were rumours of a documentary called Coronation Street: Queens of the Street, which would feature some of the Cobbles' most famous ladies looking back at their time on the soap.

Former Corrie stars like Sarah Lancashire, Suranne Jones and Julie Goodyear were all said to have signed up, and now it has been revealed that Sally bloody Lindsay will be involved too!

Chatting to OK! Magazine, the Shelley Unwin actress spoke about her hesitation, stating: "I rang some of the girls doing it and asked them, 'What do you think?' and they were like, 'Why not?' It was an amazing time."

Meanwhile, Gary Windass actor Mikey North has teased the anniversary a bit, saying: "I spoke to [Coronation Street producer] Iain [MacLeod] a couple of weeks ago.

"I think he has got plans for the 60th and stuff which sounds really, really exciting, but obviously there's a lot of stuff to happen before then, whether that happens or not I don't know."

Lorna Laidlaw, who plays newcomer Aggie Bailey, has also recently shared that she really, really wants a live episode to celebrate the milestone too.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
