    Guys.. I could use some help. I was looking for an interview with Kate Oates, where she talks about her plans for Coronation Street. Not a spoiler interview per se, just her thoughts and wishes going forward. I swear I read an interview back in July. I have looked everywhere for it, but I just can't find it. I appreciate your help

    Coronation Street's producer might have faced a couple of awkward questions over its recent hard-hitting storylines, but Kate Oates is on the cobbles for the long haul.

    Oates previously worked on Emmerdale before she joined ITV's other premier soap, replacing Stuart Blackburn as series producer in 2016.

    And she's now told The Mirror that she'll be around a little while longer yet.

    Confirming that she plans to stay on as producer until 2019, Oates said: "It's a very intense job so people normally do it for about three years before moving on and that's what I'm planning.

    "You have to remember all the time that you're just looking after it for the next person. You want to do a solid job and hand it over in a healthy state."

    As far as her plans for the future after bidding farewell to Coronation Street, Kate revealed: "I love a good narrative so I'll always work in drama."

    It comes after a series of controversial plots on the ITV soap, including the date rape of David Platt, with the producer insisting that such stories need to be told.

    Admitting that she expected David's harrowing scenes to produce "a mixed reaction", Kate defended the decision to air the potentially distressing scenes.

    "I think any soap story of this nature will get a mixed reaction, and that's okay," she said. "That's part of the reason to do it.

    "If society was prepared for it, there would be no reason to tell the story. If people respond differently, it suggests there is still discussion to be had."
