The faces of Corrie in 1986

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 1986, 105 episodes were broadcast.

1. Jack Duckworth (72 episodes)
2. Terry Duckworth (72 episodes)
3. Bet Lynch (71 episodes)
4. Gloria Todd (68 episodes)
5. Hilda Ogden (67 episodes)
6. Rita Fairclough (67 episodes)
7. Mike Baldwin (66 episodes)
8. Susan Barlow/Baldwin (66 episodes)
9. Ivy Tilsley (65 episodes)
10. Kevin Webster (65 episodes)
11. Mavis Riley (65 episodes)
12. Vera Duckworth (64 episodes)

Due to lack of space, Betty Turpin fails to make the top 12, but she also appeared in 64 episodes

Average age: 41

Note: To date, this is the last time Terry appears in the top 12 and the only time Susan appears. This is also the first time that an original character failed to make the top 12.

I think this year is the highest gender ratio with 9 women making to the top 12!

I loved Terry Duckworth back in the day. He was a definite rebel, but had a good heart. I was sorry to see him leave and looked forward to him returning. Only to have my hopes dashed when they replaced him with a 2d pantomime villain!

Was this the first time that a character left for greener pastures and returned minus a moral compass? Todd Grimshaw anyone?
