Our blogger Llifon (on twitter @LlifonJ) has done a terrific job with his countdown of our favourite Coronation Street women.  From starting the polls, gathering the votes and writing all of the blog posts, Llifon has really dedicated himself to the task over a period of months and deserves a pint in the Rovers Return for all his hard work!

Cheers, Llifon!

Elsie Tanner was robbed!

Can only be Becky surely?

I thought for sure it was going to be Blanche that got #1, so I'm completely at sea for this one.
I'm venturing a guess that it's not one of the older characters, most of the top ones seem to be the newer cast.
Sally maybe?

C in Canada said...

Oh no wait, Sally's already been on the list.

Definitely Becky!!!! Hopefully...

Michelle Collins said...

Stella Price, perhaps. Please.

John McE said...

Oh, God! Not Becky.... please! Anyone but her. Norris, perhaps?

Surely, Elsie Tanner should have been number one?

Beth said...

Becky as number 1 - surely not

Gail isn't on the list yet, although I think it should be Amy!

Anonymous said...

Gail? whatever her current surname is.

Anonymous said...

Gail didn't make the list.

missi said...

Please not Michelle MacDonald ( or is she still going by Connor?)

WHY is Mary Taylor even on this list?????

Zagg said...

I am surprised that Tina and Gail are not on this list. I mean Mary how could they not be? I suppose it will be Becky as number one, which baffles me. How could Deirdre not be number one?

Anonymous said...

Since she's a Barlow,I have a bad feeling that Tracy will be number one.I hope I'm wrong.

Why is Mary on the list? She is so irritating!

Anonymous said...

I presume that those who are saying that Deirdre or Blanche should have been No.1 have never seen legends like Ena,Elsie,Annie,Hilda etc.,?

Faye Mitchell said...

Becky or Tina

MartesBC said...

Wow, what a cliff hanger this is... And what fun! Well done Llifon! Thank you.

JJ2000 said...

Glad Becky won, she is definitely the worst deserving.

However, shocked that Tina and Gail aren't on here. And Kylie should be way higher up.

This poll should be done every year or atleast every two years for all the main female and male characters and compared each year. It's quite interesting to see. Will definitely be voting this time.

And people saying that Mary is irritating???? What programme are you watching, she is one of the funniest characters there.

Martin said...

No Minnie Caldwell or Irma Barlow?
Margot Bryant (Minnie) and Sandra Gough (Irma) were superb in the infamous Joe Donelli storyline.

Ans also no Lucille Hewitt (Jennifer Moss). Unbelievable...
