In a statement, an ITV spokesperson said: “ITV has sadly taken the decision to suspend production of the soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale with effect from Monday 23 March. 

“We’ve been doing our best to carry on filming, whilst adhering to the Government’s latest health guidelines, to ensure we’ve episodes of both soaps airing on ITV until at least the early summer.

“However, the health and well-being of the production teams, actors, crew and their families is of paramount importance to us and we now feel that the time has come to stop filming.  

“We’d like to thank our viewers for their support and hope they continue to enjoy both soaps in the coming months.”

These aren’t the only soaps to be postponed for the time being as it was also announced this week that EastEnders had been pulled off the air by BBC bosses for the same reasons. 

EastEnders official Twitter page said: “In light of the spread of Covid-19, filming on #EastEnders will be postponed until further notice… 

“We have also taken the decision to reduce the amount of episodes we broadcast each week to two.”

“Episodes will now air on Mondays, 8pm and Tuesdays, 7.30pm.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that all UK schools, pubs and restaurants would close on Friday. 

Before filming ends, Coronation Street fans might finally find out what will happen between Yasmeen Nazir (played by Shelley King) and her abusive husband Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholemew).

A source told Sun Online, that even though Yasmeen may get away from Geoff for good, she could soon have blood on her hands. 

A source has revealed that Yasmeen could murder Geoff after months of emotional and physical abuse. 

But, will there be enough evidence to prove that she killed him in self-defence? 

And on Emmerdale, Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) could lose all custody of his daughter Millie Tate (Willow Bell) for good. 

In upcoming scenes, Jamie will find himself in a passionate embrace with Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) once again, but this time she could find herself pregnant. 

Jamie has spent weeks threatening Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale) that she will never get custody of Millie. 

But if she finds out about Jamie and Belle, would Andrea finally take Millie away for good?
