Trivia

Legendarily, Creator Tony Warren had to rename the series from its original title "Florizel Street", which was considered to sound like a disinfectant. Denis Forman has recalled that at least two members of Granada's board were dead-set against the show, considering it a "disagreeable" and "downmarket" concept. Company co-Founder Sidney Bernstein was also reluctant to commit to the idea. His brother Cecil, with Forman, pushed for the greenlight. See more »

Corrie really is the nations soap and is so ingrained in our minds that everyone probably has a favourite character, moment of line.

Yes, it's probably on too many days of the week and the plots at times verge of ridiculous but what I love about Corrie is that of all the soaps it maintains that balance between humour and drama and that is what makes it so endearing.

While Eastenders may win more awards I think Corrie is loved more by the public and that is why the characters remain in our hearts so long after they have left.

With another good live episode out of the way recently the only way for Corrie seems to be up.
