Coronation Street fan of the week - Ray from New York

It's Wednesday and time to meet another Corrie fan of the week.
Would you like to be our Coronation Street fan of the week? Click here to find out more.

Who are you and where are you from? 
 I am Ray Benavidez. I am a chef from New York City. 

How long have you been watching Corrie?
 I've been a fan for about 10 years now more or less, probably more.

Who are your favourite female and male characters - and the reasons why? 
 It's hard to narrow down favourite characters. I loved Jack and Vera Duckworth but also loved Mike Baldwin and his lovely ex-wife Alma, it was so sad when she died from cancer and lastly Betty Driver she will be sorely missed. Why they are or were my favoirites is because they spoke their mind no matter what anyone thought and Betty was such a feisty bird.

And what would your fantasy Corrie storyline be?
Fantasy storyline would be for Norris to come out of the closet. Maybe he goes to a gay pub and Sean and Marcus spot him there.

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?
I tweet with a few of the cast members about past and present shows and I went with friends this past October to the UK on holiday as well as several other countries and well we were all saddened to find out that they didn't do tours of the set of Coronation Street anymore, we all had our hearts set on going there to walk the cobbles that we have seen for all these years. We skype and chat with each other about the show but have a standing rule to never spoil the show if others in our group have not seen an episode. Though I love to tease them pretending to give them spoiler alerts which in fact aren't!

That would be a good one to see Norris go to a gay bar and be spotted by Sean and Marcus, I would love that. However he had a thing for Rita so probably not gay...

Ah, but most gay men have a thing for Rita! ;-)

Speaking from experience - gay men CAN have a thing for a woman.

Anonymous - that must be very confusing, despite opening a whole world of potential when ANYONE could be someone you could have a thing for. I don't think I could handle that much choice. ;)
