Ta Ra, Tony

Coronation Street producer Tony Wood has confirmed he will leave the soap at the end of this year.

Didsbury-based Mr Wood took over in January 2004 and has kept the Street at the top of the ratings and winning accolades, including most popular serial drama at the National Television Awards.

He introduced sensational storylines such as Mad Maya and the showdown between Tracy Barlow and Karen McDonald.

Former Emmerdale producer Steve Frost is a favourite to replace Mr Wood.
