Two cast members of the UK TV soap, Coronation Street will be visiting Kenya to make a special documentary for British ITV.
The stars Michelle Keegan and Ryan Thomas – who play the roles of Tina McIntyre and Jason Grimshaw – will shoot the documentary set for screening in June.
It is said to be titled Corrie Goes to Kenya and it will be an emotional film as the tow screen stars visit a few orphanages, where thousands of children end up as their parents have died of AIDS related illnesses.
The film will also look at the issue of drug abuse in Africa, and female circumcision.
Speaking to The People, a source said of the documentary, “This trip will be a real eye-opener. The cast will come face to face with people whose lives could not be more different from their own.
“When you talk to people affected by these problems, the impact is huge, and the Corrie stars are desperate to help in any way that they can. There are many of them who do a lot for charity because they see it as their way of giving back.
“They know that their celebrity status helps put the spotlight on important issues. It would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a chance to highlight the struggles of real people.”
