Coronation Street stars apparently had to stop filming the ITV soap because of terrible weather.
The sunny weather has largely disappeared and rain has hit the UK – and it seems Weatherfield hasn't escaped.
Cast member Samia Longchambon posted a message on Instagram this week revealing that the downpour meant that shooting on the soap was halted.

She shared a clip on Instagram that showed her walking along the street with a rueful expression on her face, snuggled up in a cosy-looking coat to help her keep warm.
As Samia walked along, the nearly empty cobbles could be seen behind her, with everyone presumably having fled inside to get away from the torrential rain.
"Rained off on the cobbles this morning… great start to a Monday," wrote the TV star, who was holding a huge umbrella over head to keep her dry as she headed off set.
Samia added emojis such as a rain cloud and a camera to her post.
The Coronation Street set is actually located in Salford, Manchester, and according to reports the area experienced storms and a lot of rain early on Monday.
Samia, 41, has been on other TV shows such as Adam's Family Tree and Heartbeat and she has also been on reality shows like Dancing On Ice.
But the actress is best known for playing Maria Connor in Corrie.
She is one of the soap's long-serving stars, as she was cast as the character back in 2000.
The star hasn't indicated that she's got any attention of waving goodbye to Weatherfield any time soon, but it seems that if she ever did decide to leave she has another career option in her back pocket.
Speaking last year, Samia told The Sun that she had actually qualified as a reflexologist.
"If everything goes pear-shaped I can always pick that up again," she said.
