Coronation Street is part of the fictional town of Wetherfield, Greater Manchester. Centred on the colourful lives of families, friends and workers on the street, events often unfold in unexpected and dramatic ways.
As the UK's longest running soap opera, storylines including tales of bigamy, addiction, hit-and-runs and a deadly tram crash that have long had viewers hooked for 50 years and more. With an emphasis on warm humour, love-or-hate-them personalities and working class lives, Coronation Street's fan base extends beyond the UK, with a strong international community of die-hard followers.
The lives of the Coronation Street residents converge at the local pub - the Rovers Return. Often the scene of a scandal, current landlady is Stella Price (Michelle Collins) - who has not escaped her own share of drama as her partner Karl Munro (John Mitchie) becomes embroiled in an affair with barmaid Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati).
Coronation Street's main employer is the knicker factory, Underworld, now owned by strong, no-nonsense business woman Carla Connor (Alison King). She employs some of the streets best-loved characters, including the first transsexual in British soap, Hayley Cropper (Julie Hesmondhalgh), and loveable yet dopey Kirk Sutherland (Andrew Whyment).
Comedic characters have always been a mainstay on the Coronation Street - the awkward busybody Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden) even has his own Twitter account. An unlikely candidate for social media, as his character tweets on screen, you can follow him @norrismole - proof of the show's innovative approach.
Having broadcast continually since 1960, the soap shows no signs of slowing as devoted viewers tune in three times a week to get their fix of life on Coronation Street.
