Corrie cuts

Even Coronation Street has been hit by the financial crisis – and guess where show producers have decided to cut back? On the free chip butties for the cast.

Yes, the poor old stars of the show have had their on-set van taken away, which used to provide them with free teas, coffees and hot snacks.

The hard-done-by celebrities are now going to have to go to the canteen, queue up and pay for their dinner with the rest of the crew. The outrage!

All joking aside, it seems the new system may cause problems with filming as they all work such long hours and having to go back to the studio to get a bite to eat may take its toll on the schedule.

Do you feel that sorry for them?
