https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47538101 From tram crashes to motel fires, the disaster plotline is a soap opera staple. Next week, tragedy will strike the residents of ITV's Coronation Street, as the roof of the Underworld textiles factory collapses, leaving Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) and Gina Seddon (Connie Hyde) trapped in the rubble. Corrie bosses have teased that one character will die as a result of the collapse, which looks likely to be down to sabotage. It's not the first time such trouble has come to the cobbles of Weatherfield. If it existed outside Soapland, health and safety officials would likely have closed the Underworld factory years ago. David Brown, deputy TV editor for the Radio Times, says of the location: "Underworld is massively dangerous. It's just completely cursed. "Over the years, we've had people falling down the stairs and dying, a body buried under the floor, a siege on the premises and the whole place being engulfed by fire. "You'd probably get cheaper life insurance working as a bomb disposal officer than you would working as a machinist at Underworld and yet still people turn up to stitch knickers there day in day out."
