Oooops! Who spotted the Corrie script error?

Coronation Street fans have received an apology after the soap made a mistake in the recent storyline surrounding Maddie’s funeral.

“It must be hard burying one of your kids,” Kevin (Michael Le Vell (opens in new tab)) said, following Maddie’s death.

But, of course, Kevin would know just how hard it is… Fifteen years ago, he and his then-wife, Alison, lost their baby, Jake, who died of an infection shortly after his birth.

And that became a double tragedy when heartbroken Alison (Naomi Radcliffe (opens in new tab)) then killed herself, throwing herself under the wheels of a lorry.

“I’d like to thank viewers who spotted our mistake,” Corrie boss Stuart Blackburn (opens in new tab) told The Sun.

“Our episodes go through many drafts and are scrutinised by many people, but on this occasion we did make a mistake.”

Coronation Street (opens in new tab) continues on ITV, Monday, 15 June, 7.30pm.
