Family life on Coronation Street takes on a whole new shape through surrogacy

August 16, 2012

Coronation Street is the first major UK soap to tackle surrogacy, with a story beginning tonight in which Katy offers to carry a baby for her disabled sister Izzy and husband Gary.

As the UK’s leading experts on surrogacy law, Natalie Gamble Associates were approached for help at an early stage by the Corrie research team, who wanted to make sure the legal issues were dealt with accurately in the programme.  Natalie, who has advised the research team throughout story development and script writing, says:

‘The fact that surrogacy is on Corrie is such a testament to how accepted a part of normal life surrogacy has become in the UK. It has been fabulous to work alongside ITV to make this story come to life.

‘Although life on Corrie is rarely smooth and uncomplicated (you’ll have to wait and see what happens!), we are delighted to have played a part in telling a great story which we hope will raise awareness for the real families being created through surrogacy who we work with every day’.
