Trivia

In 2011 Philip Lowrie broke the world record for the longest gap between appearances in the same television show, having regularly appeared as Dennis Tanner from the first edition in 1960 through to June 1968, before returning to the part in May 2011. In doing so (beating one-time co-star Kenneth Cope, who was absent from the role of Jed Stone for 42 years between 1966 and 2008) he was awarded with an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Coronation Street Fantastic!
6 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love Coronation street and have been watching it forever..I would watch it with me mam if I stayed home from school due to illness.

I remember when I first started watching, it was in black and white. I miss the old characters like Ena Sharples and Uncle Albert.

I do not care for the Sarah storyline much. Maybe it's because I don't like Sarah. Her mother, Gail, is an old shrew.

I love Blanche Hunt, doesn't everyone have a Blanche Hunt in their neighborhoods?

And lovely Rita...she's my very favourite. What a brilliant actress and a shining star.

I love when Les Battersby refers to Norris as "Doris"!

I hope this show runs for another 42 years so I can watch it when I'm in the IL' nursing home.
