With most of the residents living here, there and everywhere it gets difficult to keep track so i thought it would be interesting  to see who in the current cast has lived where the longest  (extended holidays, temporary evictions and occasions of  absence such as prison time not included). 

Below are the top 10 residents who have some staying power. 

Emily Bishop - 3 Coronation Street, (47 years) 1972-Present.
Even though she gifted it to Norris in 2013 and is currently on an extended visit with family it's still her carefully preserved home (until we are told otherwise). 

Ken Barlow - 1 Coronation Street, (40 years). 1972-1974, 1976-1990, 1995-Present.
