Corrie's Platt family have it out on Jeremy Kyle

Wednesday March 17, 2010

The drama on Coronation Street is branching out of Weatherfield.

The soap's dysfunctional Platt family are set to air their dirty laundry in a special, one-off episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show. In celebration of the hit daytime programme's 1000th episode, David Platt, played by Jack P Shepherd, and his ex girlfriend and stepsister Tina McIntyre - played by Michelle Keegan - will be having it out in front of a live audience.

The actors will stay in character for the show, and in keeping with a typical episode, David is set to demand a lie detector to see if Tina and his big brother Nick have been sleeping together.

The soap's Graeme Proctor, played by Craig Gazey, will provide contributions from the audience.

"I always watch it, so it's a bit weird to be one minute watching it and the next on the show," says actress Michelle.

The episode airs this Thursday on ITV1.
