The Sun reports that Mike Benson, from makers Clapperboard, said: “Series one was something of a journey – or mid-price cruise – into the unknown, not least trying to film a drama on a cruise ship with 6,000 holidaymakers heading to eight different countries.”

C5 exec Paul Testar added: “We’re excited to be bringing this series back.”

As news emerged that The Good Ship Murder is coming back, fans couldn’t contain their excitement, as they rushed to X, formerly known as Twitter, to comment.

Cath and Shane’s characters on Corrie faced many-a hardship, with the actors often embroiled in difficult storylines including, including Aidan’s affair with Maria Connor and Eva’s faking a pregnancy, which she did as an act of revenge for him cheating on her.

Later, Eva actually did get pregnant with Aidan’s child, but she decided not to tell him, and instead fled the Street. Aidan then saw his factory, the Underworld, destroyed, leaving him homeless.

He tragically went on to take his own life following the birth of his child, leaving Eva devastated.
