Victoria Wood's ode to Coronation Street's first episode

It's a sad day indeed as news reaches us that writer and comedienne Victoria Wood has passed away, age 62, from cancer.

And so, in homage to her we present for your enjoyment once again, her wonderful spoof of Coronation Street's first episode.

One of Victoria's best sketches.

"Off up to Scotland. Come back after twenty years without so much as a Scottish accent."

No matter what happens with Peter Barlow, this line is always in the back of my head! It's brilliant!
