My name is Anthony Currie and I live in a village near Sheffield.
How long have you been watching Corrie?
My gran used to watch it avidly. I watched it off and on until around the mid-90's when I started watching properly. Maybe it was because that's when I had kids of my own so had started to stay in more!
Who are your favourite female and male characters - and the reasons why?
Male - Either Roy or Norris. I love Roy's unwavering morals, even when it is to his disadvantage. I like the fact that he's a hobbyist, although I prefer Scalextric to model trains. Norris I like for the opposite reasons. His pomposity and hypocrisy are very entertaining traits, especially when his schemes backfire.
Female – Tracy. I see many people commenting on the blog how much they hate her, but surely that’s the point? She’s the pantomime villain on the street.
What have been some of your favourite Corrie storylines over the years?
No storyline in particular stands out, although I loved Becky and Steve's weddings! My favourite thing about Corrie is the moments rather than the dramas. The writers seem to really enjoy giving the characters great touching or funny lines that often reveal a lot about the characters and make you feel like you 'know' these people.
And what would your fantasy Corrie storyline be?
That’s a tough one! I’d love to see Emily return from Peru with Spider. He’d be a great addition to the street and would drive Norris mad!
Have you any snippets or news about meeting any of the Corrie cast, or trips to the set, etc., that you'd like to share?
My wife and I did the tour (photo above) with our daughter and her friend in 2014. Last year when it became clear that the tour was going to end my wife booked the 2 of us into the Christmas Party which was on a Friday night. It was the same night as my works Xmas do and when I told my boss I was going to Corrie instead he was full of sympathy and made a comment about the sacrifices us men make to keep our ladies happy! Little did he know! It was a fantastic night. I spent most of it sat at the bar in the Rovers drinking beer, eating mini-hotpots, and not believing my luck! You could go through the toilet door and it took you to the knicker factory where there was a disco! A surreal and very memorable night!
