Coronation Street New Sponsor

SOMEONE is moving into Coronation Street – as this exclusive pic shows.
Furniture retailer Harveys begin their £20m Corrie sponsorship a week tomorrow – Sunday Sept 30.
Many viewers have been puzzled by the disappearance of sponsorship around episodes this week.
The last Cadbury “bumper” ads were screened last Sunday – and ended without any fanfare with a post-final credits plug for Dairy Milk Melts.

All parties agreed that there should then be a gap between the old Cadbury sponsorship and the arrival of Harveys.
Hence the current lack of sponsors ads.

Harveys, of course, have no editorial input into Street scripts.
But perhaps the writers have had a bit of fun with both the recent arrival of Vera’s vibrating chair and Ashley’s move to Kevin and Sally’s front room sofa.
