In a first in this series of polls, there is a tie to who has triumphed in the poll to find Corrie fans' favourite moment from the 1970s. 156 voted and both when Hilda revealed her 'muriel' in July 1976 and Ernest Bishop being shot in January 1978 came first and received 27 votes (17.31%).
 
In second place with 21 votes (13.46%) came when the Ogdens went on their second honeymoon in November 1977. In joint third place came the Street's Silver Jubilee celebrations in June 1977 and when a lorry crashed into the Rovers in March 1979 with 16 votes (10.26%).
 
Hilda Ogden holding a s√©ance in August 1977 received 10 votes (6.41%) while Valerie Barlow being electrocuted to death in January 1971 received 8 votes (5.13%). Betty Turpin revealed as Gordon Clegg's mother in December 1974; Elsie Tanner's return in April 1976; and Suzie Birchall mistakenly dropping a brick down the Ogdens' chimney in March 1977 all received 6 votes (3.85%).
 
The Kabin opening for the first time in June 1973 received 4 votes (2.56%) while Ernest Bishop and Emily Nugent's wedding in April 1972; Eddie Yeats saving Bet Lynch from suicide in April 1975; the warehouse fire in October 1975; and Len Fairclough and Rita Littlewood's wedding in April 1977 all received 2 votes (1.28%).

Deirdre being assaulted under the viaduct in October 1977 received 1 vote (0.64%) and when Joe Donnelli held Irma Ogden, Minnie Caldwell and Stan Ogden hostage in December 1970; and Lynn Johnson's murder in January 1975 received 0 votes (0%).
