5 of the Best from Corrie's History This Week


Corriepedia is a wonderful site. If you haven't visited it, please do.

Every day on Twitter the guys who run Corriepedia look back at a handful of storylines which took place on this day in a different year of Coronation Street's history.

And so each Sunday, I take a look at my personal favourite five storylines from those which Corriepedia have alerted us to during the week.

I hope you enjoy these short and sweet looks down memory lane.

The Ken and Raquel scene was wonderful! But I can still see Ken's pained expression, his usual go-to reaction to anything ! and I always liked Harry Flagg!
