Coronation Street

This awesome soap first aired on December 9, 1960. I’ve been a huge fan of Coronation Street since my oldest child was just a baby, almost 22 years ago now. Back in those days Corrie was shown on free to air TV, it disappeared for several years then reappeared on Pay TV here in Australia. We are still a couple of years behind the current episodes in the UK.

Every now and then I must admit to going to some of the sites to see the upcoming story lines. Here are some links to the main ones I look at:
(Warning – Lots of Spoilers here)

Official site from Granada TV

Corrie.net – The Coronation Street Fans website – Full profiles of characters, actors and places.

Corrieblog – Includes Coronation Street Weekly Updates, Previews and Episode Reviews.
