Corrie update – a friend’s life changing offer

Coronation Streets Tina_bFriday’s episode saw Tina offer to be Gary and Izzy’s surrogate following much deliberation. Working with a friend is a common route to finding a surrogate in the UK given that professional surrogacy agencies are barred here (although there are a few non profit making UK agencies).

For those parents fortunate enough to have a friend willing to carry their baby, surrogacy arrangements often work extremely well. Each arrangement is unique and we advise many parents on the legal issues, including parental status and payments. If you would like some clarification on the legal issues surrounding your arrangement, please contact us at

There is also free information available on our website on surrogacy law and more from our blog about our work with Coronation Street on this storyline.
