Coronation Street search for a new baby star

The hunt is on for a new arrival to join the cast on the cobbles


Coronation Street producers have launched a search for a new child star to play a baby in the popular soap later this year.


In adverts put up in hospitals around Greater Manchester, producers are asking parents if their new arrival could be “the next Coronation Street star”.

Asking for a white baby boy who will be born next month, producers are said to be on the look out for identical twins to alternate playing the role.


Although it hasn’t been confirmed, speculation is growing that the new buggy on the cobbles will belong to character Molly Dobbs, who is currently pregnant in the soap.
