Corries Sally Ann Matthews tells off Charlie Stayt in awkward soap clash on BBC

As the Horrornation Street carnage continues, Corrie star Sally Ann Matthews popped in to BBC Breakfast to tease some of the ITV soap's big drama this week.

With hosts Charlie Stayt and Sally Nugent getting the lowdown on the weather-related disaster, Sally Ann quipped that it was “Just another day in Weatherfield.”

Sally Ann enthused: “This week is great.

“It’s our super-soap week, so it kicks off the ITV autumn season, and Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s episodes actually take place over one story day.”

Charlie then asked: “Did you watch Coronation Street when you were young?”

“I was in it when I was young!” an incredulous Sally Ann replied.

“Forget I just said that,” Charlie said.

“Big fan, I can tell,” she smiled.

It's changed quite a bit!"

Sally Ann begged to differ, replying: “Hang on a minute, Charlie. There was a disaster where a viaduct collapsed, a lorry crashed into the Rovers…”

“I’m corrected in so many ways,” Charlie said sheepishly.

Sally then teased: “I’m going to buy you the 60 years of Coronation Street book and test you!”

Discussing what else fans can expect for Weatherfield's residents this week, Sally Ann cheekily refused to let Charlie off the hook.
