Corrie Goes to Kenya is on ITV at 9pm, Friday 17th.
Lauren's dad, Damon, has been volunteering for the charity SAFE out in Kenya. He writes for Coronation Street so he took four of the cast members - Sue Cleaver (Eileen Grimshaw), Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw), Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and Ben Price (Nick Tilsley) - out there earlier this year to work with some of the Kenyan team, and executive-produced a two-part documentary, Corrie Goes to Kenya, about their experiences. The first part will be shown on Friday.
Read Sue Cleaver's story in The Mirror here and Ryan Thomas's here. More photos here. Trailer here. Writers' Guild articles about Damon's involvement with the project here and here.
I'm very proud of Damon and really looking forward to seeing the show.
