Fab Photo Friday - October 26th 2012

It's Friday again so it's time for this week's fab Coronation Street photo. Back in the days when  I used to work for a living, Friday was always known as POETS day (P*ss Off Early Tomorrow is Saturday) so here today on the Coronation Street Blog, here are some poets.

Sir John Betjeman was a big fan of the soap and once said: “Manchester produces what to me is the Pickwick Papers. That is to say, Coronation Street, I live for it. Thank God. Half past seven tonight and I shall be in paradise.”

Also pictured is Carol Ann Duffy, the current Poet Laureate, who penned an ode especially for the 50th anniversary.

Editor's post-blog note: And don't forget our blog editor Flaming Nora's poetry book too!
