"This is my response to the article that was written yesterday about the next generation of Corrie fans.
OK, for starters everyone has their own opinion and is entitled to have that. I started watching Coronation Street in 2010 because at that point in my life, I was only 10 years old, but that does not mean that younger Corrie viewers have no idea about the past of Coronation Street. I happen to know when it was started and I also happen to know a lot of the past characters including the legends which were Jack and Vera.
As the article yesterday stated, you couldn't compare Nick and Carla to them which I 100% agree with but that does not mean we cannot ship them.

Obviously some fans which have only started watching the show recently may not know the history behind it but some of, even though we may only be younger does not mean we haven't researched or gotten to know the background of it.
I was here for the tram crash, Liam's death, Jack and Vera's death, all of that, but funnily enough I wasn't here for the whole Richard Hillman days but I do know what he did, I do know a lot of the previous characters as I have elderly family members who have watched the show all their lives. Just because I was born in 1999 and being 16 years old doesn't mean that I am any less aware of the past.
Whether you're 10, 15, 25 or 125, you are entitled to have your own opinion on your favourite characters, favourite couples and so on. As I said previously, my favourites are Nick and Carla but yours may be some other like Liam and Carla or Jack and Vera or even Ken and Deirdre. Each to their own."
Thankyou, Deena. @QueenAliKingx
