First look at Coronation Street’s new Underworld as it’s rebuilt after factory collapse that killed Rana

CORONATION Street’s Underworld factory has been rebuilt after the devastating factory collapse that killed Rana earlier this year.

Fans got a first look at the new building on a Halloween tour of the ITV soap’s set last week – and the new building can be seen in The Sun Online’s exclusive pictures.

The rebuilt factory has lost its steps and huge overhang for a new more modern look for the knicker factory.

The Cobbles were devastated when the knicker factory collapsed in one of Corrie’s biggest storylines back in March this year.

The roof fell in after a botched repair, killing Rana and leaving girlfriend Kate devastated.

After months of mystery – in which everyone from dead serial killer Pat Phelan, who did the original dodgy patch up job, to owner Carla Connor, who was putting off the repairs – came under suspicion.


It was eventually revealed that Gary Windass was to blame as he sabotaged the roof to get extra work for his failing firm.

The accident sent Gary into a downward spiral – and the Street’s residents still don’t know he’s to blame after he deleted a voicemail confession to now-ex Sarah Platt.

It’s not the first time the Underworld has been destroyed – in 2010, it was burnt to the ground, killing owner Tony Gordon and almost burning Carla Connor to death.


Since the collapse, the factory has been unused– until now.

Gary has been forcing one of his debtors to front his scam to rebuild the factory and get rent for the business from the owners.

The fact that the new factory is back in action means that fans could see it back onscreen as soon as Christmas when bloody scenes are set to air with Gary being responsible for yet another death when Robert Preston is shot.
