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.

    As COVID cases spike in Florida, Trump now says he's 'flexible' on convention format in Jacksonville

    With coronavirus cases exploding in Florida, President Trump said he is “flexible” about the need for a traditional indoor Republican National Convention in Jacksonville next month. The Republican National Committee had scrapped plans to hold the party's convention in Charlotte, N.C., after Gov. Roy Cooper said he would only allow “a scaled-down convention with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings.” In a television interview with former Fox anchor Greta Van Susteren, Trump suggested the format for the Aug. 24-27 event would depend on the severity of the outbreak in the Sunshine State.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been accused of echoing a 14-word white supremacist phrase during one of his on-air segments.

Critics said the phrase across the screen mirrored that of the white supremacist 14-word slogan: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

    U.S. Treasury chief supports more direct payments in next coronavirus aid bill

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday that he supports another round of direct payments to individuals as part of the next coronavirus legislation and is working to get it passed by Congress by the end of July. Mnuchin also told CNBC in an interview that not all of the airlines that signed Treasury loan agreements will need to access those loans, as they may be able to meet their financing needs in private financial markets. Despite United Airlines' decision on Wednesday to notify 36,000 employees of potential furloughs, Mnuchin said he believed most airlines wanted to keep as many staff as possible, and healthy airlines were needed to aid the U.S. economic recovery.

    On the Next Stimulus, Democrats Have to Stand Up and Stop Trump’s Fleecing of America

    On Monday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin finally bowed to growing national outrage around the White House's sketchy accounting for emergency COVID-19 relief funds connected to Donald Trump's controversial $660 billion Paycheck Protection Program. Trump and company hailed the move as another sign of the administration's transparency, but close readers are finding more questions than answers. Why did large hedge funds and private equity firms unaffected by COVID-19 closures receive hundreds of millions of dollars from a relief program designed to help struggling small businesses?

The commission would have final say on the department's budget and officer discipline. "There should be an entirely new accountability structure for NYPD," James said in her report, which also recommended giving more power to the Civilian Complaint Review Board, a city agency that reviews police misconduct.

    Former India navy officer refuses to appeal spying death sentence

    A former Indian naval officer on death row in Pakistan for alleged spying has refused to lodge an appeal against his conviction and will try instead for a military pardon, an official said Wednesday. Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav was arrested in 2016 in Pakistan's restive southwestern province of Balochistan -- a region where Islamabad has long accused New Delhi of backing separatist rebels. He was sentenced to death by a closed Pakistani military tribunal in 2017, but the International Court of Justice ordered Islamabad last year to review the sentence, and he was later offered the right to appeal.

    Ousted U.S. prosecutor says Barr pressed him to resign

    The top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, who was ousted last month as his office led a probe into President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani, told lawmakers on Thursday U.S. Attorney General William Barr had pressured him to resign. In written comments submitted as part of a congressional inquiry, Geoffrey Berman said he was warned by Barr that if he did not leave and was fired, it would "not be good for my resume or future job prospects." Berman also said Barr repeatedly urged him to take another job, either in the Justice Department running its civil division or possibly as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Feds: Top Ohio State Immunologist Lied About Chinese Funding and Ties to Research Groups

    Federal prosecutors allege that a top immunologist at Ohio State University illegally concealed Chinese funding for his research and attempted to flee the country before his arrest in Alaska in May. In a criminal complaint unsealed on Thursday, the Justice Department accuses Song Guo Zheng, the Ronald L. Whisler MD Chair in Rheumatology and Immunology at Ohio State's medical school, of fraudulently obtaining federal grant funds from the National Institutes of Health and making false statements to investigators. Zheng, prosecutors say, obtained nearly $5 million in federal research grants without disclosing ties to Chinese entities and additional grant funds provided by them.

    US gives the green light to Japan’s massive $23B F-35 buy

    The United States on Thursday approved a planned purchase by Japan of 105 F-35 joint strike fighters, moving the country one step closer to becoming the biggest foreign customer of the Lockheed Martin-produced jet. The approved package includes 63 F-35A conventional takeoff and landing aircraft and 42 F-35 short takeoff and landing variants, essentially green-lighting the procurement plans spelled out by Japan in 2018. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of the possible sale, which is worth about $23 billion, although that number could change during negotiations between the country and Lockheed Martin.

    Texas carries out its first execution during pandemic after Supreme Court gives go-ahead

    Mr Wardlow had appealed against his death sentence on the basis that he was only 18 when he committed the crime. His lawyers argued that since some neuroscientists now agree that the human brain is still developing up until the age of 21, it is not possible to accurately predict how dangerous an 18-year-old might be in future – and that people under 21 who commit capital offences should therefore not be sentenced to death. The current lower limit is 18.
