The final scenes of Hayley Cropper’s dream trip to the seaside have been filmed by Coronation Street bosses in Blackpool.
The character has been diagnosed with terminal cancer but soap bosses have already confirmed Hayley is thinking of suicide before she becomes bedbound.
On Thursday she was seen walking out into the Irish Sea without shoes in scenes which will be shown at Christmas.
But filming had to stop temporarily when four holiday-making teen girls plunged into the sea - because the temperature was really in the high-60s.
Street producers had to ask them to quit swimming because they were in shot.
Hayley has been ballroom dancing in the Tower, had her fortune told by gypsy palmist and enjoyed the Pleasure Beach rides. This time it was Roy and Hayley alone with crowds watching from the Promenade.
As she went on to the beach one fan told Julie Hesmondhalgh: “Nice to see you Hayley.”
She replied: “Yes but not for much longer.”
Clutching a teddy won in a seafront arcade on a crane grab game Roy- David Neilson - followed her and looked prepared to go into the sea-Roy’s Rollers-taking off his shoes and sock and rolling up his trousers.
Whether it is a rescue attempt thinking Hayley is trying to drown herself only time will tell.
There were also scenes of the couple sitting in picnic chairs wrapped up in rugs and clutching hot water bottles.
A giant blow up crocodile also made up part of the cast list.
A Street insider said: “We hope to keep people on the edge of their seats with this one.”
