Youngest Blogger joins Coronation Street Blog team

Here on the Coronation Street Blog we have a diverse range of Coronation Street fans who write here. We're based all over the world including Canada, Dublin and Wales. The rest of us are dotted about the UK from up north to down south, we're male and female, gay and straight, young and old.

Today, we welcome our youngest blogger to join the team. Michael Adams is just 16 years old and is a huge Coronation Street fan.

He has featured on the website once before after he'd been invited behind-the-scenes on a VIP tour of the new set earlier this year. You can read his report here.

This is Michael's introductory post and we'll be hearing more from him in the coming weeks.

And now, it's over to Michael...

"Being asked to be part of my favourite Coronation Street fan site was an immense feeling, and I can't wait to begin writing for the blog.

I may only be 16 and undoubtedly the youngest blogger on here, though I can assure you that my posts shan't all be revolving around Weatherfield post 1999! 

Personally, I prefer the older episodes, with the show at its peak in the 70s, 80s and 90s, and I adore seeing the way the street has evolved and grown over the past 55 years. Corrie was so basic back then - though I believe those simplicities made it more relatable and realistic. 

Don't get me wrong though, as it's still as relatable today, and growing up in the same street and little town all my life, I certainly know a lot of people like nosey Norris! 

It's just a shame that not a lot of people my age appreciate the heritage of the show and just take each storyline as it comes, not providing me with the complex, critical conversation that I'd appreciate - haha!

Another annoyance is those on Instagram who are about ten years old whose fan accounts tell every fact wrong and think the world revolves around Carla Connor! Ahhhhh! Bring back Stan and Hilda any day... 

Hopefully you'll enjoy my upcoming posts, fingers crossed!

Welcome to the team Michael! You'll fit right in!

I also like Corrie because of its strong history! :)

It's great that the team is getting bigger - it helps to lighten the load for Glenda and the rest of us! :)
