10 things we learned from Coronation Street this year

1.    Always choose your seat on the bus carefully when you're on your work's night out.

2.     Your son might not be your son.

3.    Gail might be older but she's still no wiser.

4.    Never google your symptoms.

5.    Eileen made the worst barmaid, ever.
Steve to Liz: “That woman is guilty of hideous crimes against beer!”
Todd finds his mum's replaced Eva: “It’s like they’ve lost Marilyn Monroe and found Nora Batty!”


 6.    It's perfectly possible to live in Milan all your life and have a Manchester accent, not an Italian one.
7.    Be careful who you talk to on the internet. If it's Jeff from Dubai, unfriend him.

8.    Never leave a burning candle unattended. 

9.    Gambling addiction and alcoholism can be cured by a bit of lippy and the love of a good man.
10.    Deirdre Barlow will always be missed

There's no such thing as birth control (or common sense).

Each eрisode is only as good as the writers who write it - different levels of exрertise

Never keep secrets as they will always blow up in your face when it hits the fan!
Sadly it seems that Deirdre is already forgotten by Ken and she 'replaced' by Cathy's sister Nessa.
It seems that the Street is 'haunted' by 'invisible' children that are never seen or heard from after they are born e.g.Jack Jake,Lily.

1. Don't hire anyone just because they were or are famous. COUGHS Paddy Sarah Les Shayne

You just reminded me of an old scene between Deirdre and Carla "Nothing a bit of lippy won't sort out"
https://youtu.be/YOAufcOrDVk?t=6m8s
Anyone else love that scene?



1. If you are considered to be one of the dullest and most undesirable characters on the Street, then hook up with a popular and sultry soap heroine, and you will suddenly be desirable and popular.

Never discuss confidential stuff in a public place. The wrong person always hears.

If two рeoрle are in a storyline together, they will always bumр into each other on the street every they walk out of the door - when the storyline is over they will never meet on the street again!

cars are most likely to hit you whenever they are on coronation street - because 99% of the time there are no cars on the street, so the shock of seeing one means you tend to fall under it!!

If you think you have a tiny flat, don't worry because another 18 рeoрle can easily be accomodated uрstairs!!

Never give a wedding gift before the actual wedding!

Never utter any Soap Opera Phrase of Doom (TM TVOR) such as "Our relationship is rock solid" or " The doctor's office called. It's probably nothing."

Never do renovations, you'll end up with a body under the floor boards or in the walls.

No matter how skint you are, you will always have enough money to buy a drink in the Rovers or food in Roy's Rolls. And if you are having personal problems, it's always best to discuss them in the pub or cafe.

Re Bethany ' s lack of Italian accent: SHE IS NOT ITALIAN! She got a Manchester accent from being born in Weatherfield and spending the first 8 years of her life there. We've never been told how much a Italian she speaks, but she went to a British school and obviously speaks to Sarah in (Northern) English, so why would she have an Italian accent? ?

On the subject of children, they are all pretty much silent until the age of 11, and they must be deaf too, because adults converse on all sorts of unsuitable topics within earshot of the kids, but the kids remain oblivious. Jack, Hope and Ruby barely utter a word, yet kids of that age chatter all the time.

It's perfectly acceptable for a hairdresser to abandon a client mid-haircut to text or make a personal phone call, and for a barmaid to touch up her make-up while standing at the Rovers bar during her shift. Not to mention anyone can walk into someone's workplace to have a row or whatever. 😃

It's perfectly acceptable to bosses to have employees simply disappear without even notifying them, let alone asking permission to go, whenever any sort of problem arises in the personal lives of said employees!
