3 Explosive Coronation Street Headlines

Screengrabs from Tabloid Press Headlines about Coronation Street
Coronation Street often makes front page news. Sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes... not so much. Newspapers and their online news sites know that stories about the actors and characters of our favourite show bring in the readers and so a front page scoop on a cobbled together story can usually guarantee lots of publicity.

Whenever Corrie is going through a slow patch, there's the inevitable "Corrie Chaos on the Cobbles!" headlines from the tabloids. But when it's blazing through a good patch, we never hear them scream the same.  When there's a story about one of the cast members, good or bad, Corrie ends up on the front pages again.

But what three headlines would you imagine being the most explosive on the front pages of our papers? Just imagine you're walking to the newsagent, minding your own business, and the front page of The Mirror or The Guardian (*) catches your eye...

(*) insert your newspaper of choice here, as long as it's not The Sun. 

... and you recognise those two magic words - Coronation Street - screaming at you in bold print. You gasp in shock, or punch the air in delight, or fall down in a dead faint in the street.

What would be three Corrie news headlines hat would do that to YOU?

Here's my three - and I'd love to hear yours! And remember, it has to be FRONT PAGE NEWS! So, "Norris gets his bunions done" doesn't count this time.

1. Queen of Corrie to be Killed Off

2.  Corrie Norris Comes Out of the Closet

3.  Julie Walters joins Corrie - She'll play Audrey's sister
