Emergency Exorcism Performed in Coronation Street Home

By Gary Cutlack on at

An exorcist, or at least someone pretending to be an exorcist, has been called to Old Granada Studios in Manchester, the former home of Granada TV and one-time Coronation Street set.

Legends suggest the area is haunted by the long-dead pint-holding actors of the long-running soap opera, with a recent spike in supposed paranormal activity and general feelings of strangeness resulting in an event organiser bringing in the religious hit squad to sort out the spiritual infestation.

The story goes that party organisers of the Granadaland project that's taking place in the venue received complaints from an act that they'd encountered a spooky presence while rehearsing, which led to them refusing to play. Hence the placebo of an exorcism being required in order to keep the talent happy.

Christopher Wandsworth of Granadaland said: "The Old Granada Studios is one of the most iconic venues in the country, and we want to make sure that everyone is happy and comfortable before the event. After a lot of back and forth and the ultimatum that, unless something was done the act would pull out, an exorcism was our last resort." [Mirror]
