Cast members receive an annual salary, with bonuses for the episodes they appear in. Familiar faces on the soaps are said to earn around £200,000 a year while younger stars can pick up around £100,000 annually.

A Coronation Street spokesman told MailOnline : ‘Coronation Street and Emmerdale have reached an agreement with Equity to provide financial security for regular cast members for the next three months.

‘The specific details of this agreement will remain private as this is a contractual matter.’ 

A source added: ‘This is a very fair and consistent deal which treats everyone equally, and is in recognition of the fact we’ll need to hit the ground running once filming safely recommences.’

Equity is the trade union for creative workers and has also secured financial support for actors in dramas such as Holby City, EastEnders, Doctors and Hollyoaks.

Among Corrie’s top earners is veteran Jack P Shepherd, who is thought to earn around £200,000 a year with his role as David Platt, which he has played for 20 years.

Last month Coronation Street and Emmerdale bosses confirmed that the soap’s planned storylines will be affected by their scheduling changes during the coronavirus pandemic.

An ITV spokesperson revealed that episodes that were planned to air around Easter or VE Day in May will inevitably be shown on a different dates, after cutting back on their weekly broadcasts to ration their filmed episodes.

In their statement a spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘In the coming weeks some episodes of Coronation Street and Emmerdale will understandably be out of kilter due to the temporary transmission pattern for both programmes which takes effect from Monday 30 March.

‘Episodes due to broadcast at Easter and those commissioned and filmed to commemorate VE Day, for instance, won’t now air on the dates we’d anticipated.

‘We’d hope the audience will understand the reasons for this and continue to enjoy the shows.’

Coronation Street and Emmerdale confirmed that along with reducing their weekly broadcasts, they would also re-write certain storylines to exclude elderly cast members, allowing them the chance to self-isolate at home.

Coronation Street now airs just three episodes a week, while Emmerdale will only air five.
