Top 5 Romantic Moments in Coronation Street


In honour of St. Valentine's day today, let's have a look at some of Coronation Street's most romantic moments.  These are some of my personal favourites, so please do leave a comment below if yours isn't mentioned as I'd love to know what other people love too.

In no special order, here we go with my top 5 of Coronation Street's most romantic moments.

1. Curly names a star after Raquel

A beautiful, touching scene from Christmas 1994. Curly points to the heavens and tells Raquel he's named a star after her. It's called Mrs Raquel Watts.

2. Roy and Hayley at the airport

After Hayley had her gender reassignment operation, she followed Roy to the airport and wrote, in red lipstick on the window the words he longed to hear: "I'm coming with you."  You can watch the clip, below, with commentary from Julie Hesmondhalgh, who played Hayley Cropper.


3.  Stan and Hilda's second honeymoon


The Ogdens won third prize in a "Loving Cup Shandies" competition - a second honeymoon night in a five-star hotel with her winning slogan "Be a mistress as well as a wife and your husband'll still be a boyfriend".  The scene above gave rise to one of Corrie's best loved lines.  Stan: "What's that lipstick taste of?" Hilda: "Woman, Stanley. Woman"

4. Deirdre agrees to marry Ken, for the second time
In 2005 Deirdre finally accepted Ken's proposal of marriage - and agreed to marry him (for the 2nd time).  Ken got down on one knee, in the rain, while Deirdre was sitting on Maxine's bench outside of the hair salon.  What a lovely place for a proposal.

5. Vera's ghost returns as Jack Duckworth dies


When Jack Duckworth died in his armchair at No. 9, his little swamp duck Vera returned to take him away with her.

I remember the scene of Jack's passing - and even though it was criticized as 'hokey' at the time, I thought Vera's ghost coming back to him was very sweet.

Not ashamed to say I sobbed at Jack and Vera's final scene. I thought it was beautiful.

Anonymous 15:30 - I did too. I was a blubbering fool. Even the thought of it gets me all misty eyed.
