Coronation Street's biggest cliché revealed


There's been an awards ceremony with a difference over on Twitter for the last few days.


Run by fan account Weatherfield Police (who are definitely worth following for their unique take on Corrie police events), fans have been voting for their favourite Coronation Street cliche in the Weatherfield Police World Cup of Corrie Clichés.

It was tense.


The quarter finals were announced, then the semi finals and now the final has taken place. And fans  voted for their favourite in the Weatherfield Police World Cup of Corrie Clichés.  The champion was announced last night and it was... drum roll please ...



*******World Cup Final********
********Champion******

Skint but always boozing 

Thanks for voting!!
Happy Christmas!!
Let's get leathered & sod the expense

Some of the cliches up for voting but that sadly fell by the wayside included:  Wrongful incarceration, Hospital Scenes, Forgotten Chronic illness, Eileen's cavalcade of Men,  Unexplained Suntans, Airport Run, Comedy Dev, Steve's Latest Hobby, Tram/Bus/Car Crashes, Bistro Burglaries, Personality Transplants, Get rich quick schemes, Kevin breaking up a fight, Unlikely cell mates, Mary's mother, Olives, Bankruptcy / windfall cycle, "Actually, I'm gay", Incriminating text messages and ruthless pants barons.

That would definitely be my number one! Add eating in the cafe or bistro to that too.

A close number two though, would be elastic walls, closely followed by a local vacancy appearing just as someone is in need of a job.

How about the most obvious cliche of all- the unsuspected serial killer, Corrie is never without one.

They forgot the "One night stand, (or an affair with someone you shouldn't have an affair with) automatically pregnant" cliche.

Don’t forget the con artists.

I would like to add disappearing and re-appearing children, having money for drinks in the Rovers despite being broke and unemployed,and two American soap clichés of having designer clothes despite having a minimum wage job[Sarah] and being fully made up with perfect hair]Eva,Michelle and Sarah despite the fact she has a toddler].

You could definitely build a blog post around how most of the flower bouquets given/sent on Corrie look the same...
