T.V. "soap" writers, outraged by the record breaking viewing statistics generated by the Corrie minibus crash have vowed to go one better. The whole cast of Cockney soap, Eastbenders are about to be involved in a South Asia "aircraft gone missing" scenario.
The writers plan the cast to share a lottery win and charter an Airbus 320 to fly around Indonedia, North Korea and The Ukraine in a bad weather 'superstorm'.
The soap, in an unprecedented dramatic experiment, will be off air for three weeks while a fictitious search for the aircraft black box is carried out.
Arrangements with the Beeb to play along with the drama by putting out "breaking news" bulletins about the search for the missing plane have been made.
Plans for the cast to be eaten by sharks were welcomed by Coronation Street viewers, who have a long standing hatred of arrogant cockney wankers.
