The faces of Corrie in 1990

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 1990, 157 episodes were broadcast.

1. Alec Gilroy (122 episodes)
2. Bet Gilroy (119 episodes)
3. Deirdre Barlow (118 episodes)
4. Sally Webster (115 episodes)
5. Alma Sedgewick (105 episodes)
6. Jack Duckworth (104 episodes)
7. Mike Baldwin (102 episodes)
8. Ivy Brennan (102 episodes)
9. Rita Fairclough (102 episodes)

Wow, big jump in the number of episodes, going from 2 a week to 3 a week I gather. Strange that Vera was Number 1 and Number 4 in the 2 previous years, and suddenly she does not even break the top 12? Pace became too hectic perhaps? Illness?

Maybe it was the fact that she no longer worked at the factory, and maybe there weren't as many scenes in Frescho's where she worked in 1990. Jack still worked at the Rovers so appeared in more eps.

Elizabeth Dawn had a break of almost three months from September to December 1990.

Ken's appearance is quite surprising considering it's the only year where he didn't live in the street.

One thing that stands about these appearance lists is how rare Gail appears in the top 12, even in a year like 1990 where she had a big storyline.
