Coronation Street has always been populated by power couples. From the early days of Jack and Annie Walker, to current times with Beth and Kirk. In soap land, affairs and deception are common place – it’s very rare that a happy relationship will stay that way.
Here are five Corrie Couples that prove love can conquer all...
5) MAVIS AND DEREK WILTON
This dynamic duo had their ups and downs, but Mavis and Derek stuck together like glue. Despite some close calls, the two remained together until Derek was tragically taken away from this mortal earth after suffering a fatal heart attack. When friends of the couple mocked Derek at his own funeral, Mavis defended her love for the man in what I consider to be one of the most emotional scenes in the shows history.

4) TOMMY AND ANGELA HARRIS
3) TIM AND SALLY METCALFE
A classic Corrie couple. From the comedy storyline with the sofa last Christmas, to the sweaty moment when it looked like Tim wasn’t going to turn up to the wedding – Tim and Sally have been through it all in the short time they’ve been together. Despite Sally’s kiss with Kevin, Tim managed to forgive her and has stayed by her side ever since. Tim is a hapless window cleaner and Sally is a lady with delusions of grandeur. Sound familiar? They’re the reincarnation of Hilda and Stan!
Talking of which…
2) STAN AND HILDA OGDEN
These two were loved by all on the street, and audiences at home - a true power couple. All Hilda wanted in life was a little bit of glamour – and when the pair won a holiday, she managed to see what the high-life was like. They were even staying in room 504 – a fact that Hilda was very impressed by.
1) JACK AND VERA DUCKWORTH
SPECIAL SHOUT OUTS:
Ken and Deirdre – they were on and off for many years, but were happily (ish) married for ten years before Deirdre peacefully died earlier this year.
Sally and Kevin – True, they’re no longer together. However, the pair still have a special bond. Kevin is practically married to Tim and Sally!
Beth and Kirk – as mentioned earlier, these two are fiercely in love. Kirky is the perfect man for Beth – a gorgeous sex god with a heart of gold. (And a brain of mush.)
Sophie and Maddie – a truly happy couple, until Maddie was in the wrong place at the wrong time during the Victoria Court fire and died.
All the best,
