Coronation Street paid tribute to the victims, including super-fan Martyn Hett, at the end of last night’s episode, with a message reading “We Stand Together”.
Now, the soap plans to create a lasting tribute of a bench for the tragic victims.
Martyn’s friends and fans urged the soap to remember him, as a huge fan of the soap even having a Deirdre Barlow tattoo on his calf.
On the Coronation Street website, it was announced a new bench would be placed in the new extension to the set which is currently being built.

They also revealed what would be written on the bench.
The website read, “In memory of our friend Martyn Hett and all the victims of the Manchester bombing on Monday night we will be dedicating a bench on the Coronation Street set to remember everyone affected by the atrocity.
“The bench will be positioned in the new extension to the Coronation Street which is in the early stages of construction at the programme’s Trafford site and the transcription will be as follows:
“For Martyn and all those who lost their lives on 22nd May 2017. We Stand Together.”
