Judging by this preview, the Coronation Street tram crash looks like it’s going to be pretty spectacular.

Speaking in a press conference, actor Michael Le Vell (who plays Kevin), said of the cast watching the scene for the first time: “I thought it was amazing. I nearly cried at the end! I thought it was fantastic – just seeing the devastation on the screen, it was quite emotional!”

“What Michael said was right. I had tears of pride to belong to a team who can produce something like that. I think it’s not only one of the best things on Coronation Street ever, I think it’s one of the best things on television ever.” added Bill Roache, who plays Ken.

Speaking about what past cast members who have since passed away would think of the episode, Bill said: “There’s better technology now, you have to accept that. When they did the train crash way back in the 1960s, we didn’t have half the impact. I think they would have been proud – like I said I was – and impressed, because it is impressive. They’ve got the best teams, the best experts in every field, and Phil Collinson masterminded it. I think everybody from the past would have been really proud that we’ve got to this point.”
