corrie credit crunch!

    The cast of Coronation Street are said to be up in arms today, over a decision to take away their butty van!

    The actors and actresses on the hit ITV soap have always been provided with free tea, coffee and an array of hot food from an on-set van, but due to the credit crunch cutbacks, they've now been told to queue up at the studio canteen and pay for their grub like everyone else.

    A source from the soap revealed, "The whole cast are up in arms - they're absolutely furious." The removal of the van has caused such a fuss that insiders now suspect the cast could even cause a disruption to filming, by taking long breaks to fetch dinner from the canteen.

    "Filming on Corrie isn't easy," the source continues, "It's long hours and the actors spend a lot of time outdoors. They have always considered the butty wagon was part of their employment package."

    Oh dear... Still, there's nothing wrong with a thermos and a packed lunch, is there..!!!!
