  Corrie's sent off by football
Updated 06 February 2002, 14.09
Coronation Street kicked off by football
Coronation Street is to be sent off the box on Wednesday nights by football, it's been revealed.

But don't panic Corrie fans! The soap's just making way for Champion's League matches.

It's Europe's top club competition and Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are all in action in its second phase.

It means from 19 February Corrie addicts will have to tune in to catch up with their favourite street stars and their antics at 8pm on Tuesdays.

It won't be every week - only when there's a match from the league competition until the finals on 14 May.

Street favourites Jenny James, 23, Suranne Jones, 23, and Samia Ghadie, 19 - who play Geena Gregory, Karen McDonald and Maria Sutherland - gave strong support for the teams on Wednesday.

After a small fight over who would wear the Man U colours, they showed their support by posing in the three clubs' footie strips!
