Coronation Street cast and crew haven't tested positive for coronavirus

Coronation Street’s Sally Dynevor has confirmed that there hasn’t been any confirmed cases of coronavirus among the soap’s cast and crew yet.

The soap was forced to shut down amid the ongoing pandemic 10 days ago, with bosses announcing that filming for future episodes has been suspended to put the welfare of staff and production teams at the forefront of their priorities.

Joining Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain to discuss the global Covid-19 crisis, Sally explained that she doesn’t believe anyone has contracted the illness.

‘Not amongst the cast or crew I don’t think yet,’ she said.

‘We’re in a girls WhatsApp group which is really good,’ Sally continued. ‘We all tell each other what we’re up to and what to watch and what exercise things to do, it’s good fun and it’s really nice to keep in touch.

‘I watched the Streets the other night and I really miss everyone, it’s so weird! I’m so used to going into work and seeing everyone. It’s strange.’

The actress, who plays Sally Webster on the ITV soap, revealed that she thinks the pandemic will make us better people.

Discussing the eventual aftermath of Covid-19, Sally predicted: ‘I really think we’re going to come out of this better people.

‘We will be looking out for each other. Hopefully we’ll all come back and we’ll do things a little better.’
