Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s Coronation Street cameo has been revealed.

It was announced last month that the This Morning presenting duo would be making an appearance on Corrie.

According to Radio Times, the scenes, set to air on June 4, will see Rosie Webster, Craig Tinker and Gemma Winter heading to the ITV studios for an appearance on the popular morning show.

The trio get to meet the famous presenting duo after they help to stop a crime, but it looks like things won’t go as planned.

The scenes are said to be part of Rosie’s temporary exit from the long-running soap opera as Helen Flanagan goes on maternity leave.

Coronation Street boss Kate Oates previously told Metro about how the cameo appearance came to be.

She said: “Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are coming in for a bit of fun and part of Helen Flanagan’s exit story.

“We’re kind of replaying a bit of a trick we have used before because Rosie has already been on shows but it will be great comedy.

“Phil and Holly will play themselves – I had a couple of hopes where I thought I could get them to slightly play against type!

“They’re such good sports – I am very happy. That’s the benefit of being in a big production company like ITV – I know Emma Gormley who runs daytime – she’s an amazing, successful person and a good friend of mine so I was able to give her a ring and she said: ‘yeah, that sounds fun!'”
