The faces of Corrie in 1983

If you remember, last year I had a series of posts looking at the top 12 faces of each Corrie decade - the 1960sthe 1970sthe 1980sthe 1990s and the 2000s. For the next few weeks or so, I’ll be looking at the top 12 faces of each year between 1960 and 2013.

With thanks to Corriepedia for the information.


In 1983, 104 episodes were broadcast.

1. Bet Lynch (82 episodes)
2. Fred Gee (80 episodes)
3. Deirdre Barlow (75 episodes)
4. Vera Duckworth (71 episodes)
5. Elsie Tanner (70 episodes)
6. Betty Turpin (70 episodes)
7. Alf Roberts (69 episodes)
8. Eddie Yeats (68 episodes)
9. Ivy Tilsley (66 episodes)
10. Hilda Ogden (66 episodes)
11. Mike Baldwin (65 episodes)
12. Ken Barlow (65 episodes)

Average age: 49

Note: This is also a significant year for the top 12. Elsie makes her last appearance after 22 years. Both Eddie and Fred make their last appearances in the top 12.

It is interesting to note how many male/female are on the top 12...

I feel sorry for Julie Goodyear. Looks like she had to be there almost all year round whilst her colleagues got to have half the year off
