CORONATION Street stars panic after their contract negotiations have been suspended while the filming of the ITV series is suspended.
A number of favorites will expire in the next two months as filming of new episodes remains pending in the midst of the Covid-19 epidemic.

The main names include Samia Longchambon, 37, who plays Maria Connor, Sam Robertson (Adam Barlow), 34, and Charlie de Melo (Imran Habeeb), 28.
But while sources say “general conversations” about the future are still taking place, formal discussions on contract renewal have been put on hold.
A source said, “This is a very uncertain time – and this is especially true for those whose contracts have to be renewed.
“It was very disturbing for them to be sent home knowing that the future was not decided.
“The bosses of the series have done everything to reassure them, but until a certain normalcy has resumed, negotiations will not be finished. “
ITV chiefs said last month that they were no longer filming for Weatherfield and Emmerdale soap.
The two are now only aired three times a week to ensure that previously recorded episodes last until the start of summer.

“However, the health of the actors, the crew and their families is of paramount importance to us and we now believe that the time has come to stop shooting. “
Fans were upset but welcomed ITV’s decision.
