Coronation Street The Feature Length special Video as it was released, is now better known as "The QE2 Video" as it features Rita Sullivan, Mavis Wilton, Curly and Raquel Watts as they cruise on the QE2 where they meet up with Alec Gilroy. The 1995 special was the subject of controversy as it was transmitted on ITV on Sunday 24th March 1997 despite promises made earlier that customers were purchasing an item that would not be televised. Granada was subsequently fined for this breach of promise.
Alec Gilroy is Entertainment Manager on the QE2 and he gets Curley and Raquel a Cabin booking via the backdoor for their honeymoon. Of course it soon turns into an amusing Tragic Comedy.
