You Can Now Watch Vintage 'Coronation Street' Episodes On The ITV Hub
But if you're missing your usual dose of the popular soap, the ITV Hub is adding a selection of vintage Corrie episodes for you to binge in the meantime - and some of them are a major throwback.
From Monday 4th May, archive episodes of Coronation Street will arrive on the hub every day, transporting viewers to as far back as July 1995.
You'll be able to relive some of the most memorable moments with iconic Corrie residents including Bet Lynch (Julie Goodyear), Alec Gilroy (Roy Barraclough), Mavis Wilton (Thelma Barlow), Raquel Wolstenhulme (Sarah Lancashire) and Mike Baldwin (Johnny Briggs).
And Emmerdale fans won't be missing out either, with ITV also launching a selection of the soap's stand-out vintage episodes.
These will include Chris Tate's (Peter Amory) wedding to Rachel (Glenda McKay), and Kim Tate's (Claire King) affair with Dave Glover (Ian Kelsey).

With the social distancing measures still in place, and the soaps unable to resume filming, ITV boss Kevin Lygo recently revealed how long the soaps will run for until they run out of episodes.
Speaking at an online Q&A for the Edinburgh TV Festival, Kevin explained the episodes filmed prior to the COVID-19 lockdown would only last for a limited time, if filming could not be resumed.
He explained Emmerdale - which is currently showing three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm - only has enough banked episodes to run until the end of May.
Meanwhile Coronation Street, which also airs three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm, has enough to continue the show through May, but will likely run out in June.
If filming isn't able to resume, at least there's the archived eps to fall back on. Nice work, ITV!
