Corrie royalty Bill Roache and Barbara Knox party the night away

The Coronation Street cast were out in force as they partied the night away yesterday at the show’s annual summer bash.

A host of stars descended on the Ivy Restaurant in Manchester to let their hair down after heavy months of filming.

Leading the pack were party animals and soap royalty Bill Roache and Barbara Knox, who play Corrie icons Ken Barlow and Rita Tanner.

Fans had gathered for the arrivals and this pair understandably got the loudest cheers and screams from the starstruck crowd.

It meant that they had a hard time actually getting into the venue as their adoring public clamoured for selfies and chats.

Other faces arriving included Jennie McAlpine (Fiz), Julia Goulding (Shona), Jack P Shepherd (David), Daniel Brocklebank (Billy), Sue Cleaver (Eileen), Shelley King (Yasmeen) and newcomer Jodie Prenger (Glenda).

Take a look at our full gallery below of the cast arrivals as they looked glam and ready to hit the town.
