Merchandising is a big part of the movie industry but now Coronation Street is getting in on the act.

To mark its 50th anniversary the soap is going to have its own branded bread, tea and errrm… soap as well as a computer game.

Nintendo is said to be developing a game set in the fictional street which will be available on the Wii.

The show’s logo will be carried on Warburtons bread, Imperial Leather soap and Typhoo tea.

There will be a Corrie Ale and pies available too in celebration of the soap’s first episode, broadcast on December 9, 1960.
