Inspired by Graeme's poll, I thought I'd do a gallery of Corrie mothers over the years. There are some missing I know, but I think I've included the ones who have had a well established mother/son or daughter relationship.
First row: Elsie Tanner and son Dennis; Annie Walker and son Billy; Ida Barlow and sons David and Ken; Hilda Ogden and daughter Irma
Second row: Blanche Hunt and daughter Deirdre; Deirdre Barlow and daughter Tracy; Ivy Tilsley and son Brian; Audrey Roberts and daughter Gail
Third row: Gail Tilsley and son Nick and daughter Sarah Lou; Sally Webster and daughters Rosie and Sophie; Gail Platt and son David; Eileen Grimshaw and sons Jason and Todd
Fourth row: Liz McDonald and sons Steve and Andy; Vera Duckworth and son Terry; Maud Grimes and daughter Maureen; Anna Windass and son Gary
Who's been your favourite mum and son/daughter relationship? For me, Audrey and Gail and Blanche and Deirdre are right at the top!
Happy Mother's Day everyone and let's raise a glass to all those Corrie mothers over the years. They've not been the best but what do you expect when they live on Coronation Street!
