CORRIE INVADES ALBERT SQUARE.

Coronation Street mounted an invasion on EastEnders' territory over the weekend, when the crew of the hit ITV soap arrived in London to film an hour- long special.

The Granada team spent yesterday in London filming at a number of locations for a special episode to be screened on September 2. Filming continues today.

It will mark the swansong of Scots-born producer Brian Park, who is leaving the Street to pursue a project of his own after nearly two years at the helm. Insiders were reluctant to give too much away about the London outing but it centres on the Battersbys.

Toyah, played by Georgia Taylor, runs off down south to find her real dad after a row with mum Janice and step-father Les. The episode follows Janice and Les's search.

Mr Park, who has been criticised for driving away many of the Street's favourites, said: "I promised I was going to go out on a high note so we decided we were going to invade EastEnders' territory. Luckily we had a very strong storyline which suggested filming in London."

Street loser Curly Watts faces new heartache tonight when he gets a demand for a divorce from estranged wife Raquel.

Curly, played by troubled actor Kevin Kennedy, receives a shock letter announcing Raquel wants to remarry in Malaysia.

The bitter supermarket boss refuses her plea.
