Coronation Street 60th anniversary - making all my dreams come true


I'm very proud to be representing the Coronation Street Blog today, having been invited by ITV Coronation Street to join in their "60 for 60" celebrations in the show's run up to its 60th anniversary on December 9th.

On each of the 60 days before the 60th anniversary, Corrie have invited celebrities, charities, business partners and fans like myself to record a 30 second video to say hello and wish the show happy anniversary. 

And today's our blog's day, Saturday 17 October 2020. 

You might be wondering what my own involvement is with Coronation Street.

Well, I'm editor of two Coronation Street fan sites, the Coronation Street Blog and Corrie.net

Plus, I've written TV tie-in books about the show which led to my writing confidence level shooting through the roof.

I then, finally at the grand old age of er, 21 plus VAT, moved into writing fiction where I've built an impressive reputation as an award-winning short story writer.  Plus, I was one of just six finalists in the coveted Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais Comedy Award 2019.  I now have my own novels in the shops and an eight book deal with Headline!   and now have my own novels in the shops and an eight book deal with Headline!  

Since 2016, I have been writing my own weekly soap opera, Riverside, for The People's Friend magazine which is the longest running women's magazine in the world. So not only do I write about Corrie which is the longest running soap opera in the world, I also write for the longest running women's magazine in the world too!

So, thank you Coronation Street, for making all my dreams come true.

I'm on ITV's social media today at 
TwitterFacebookInstagram and if you're reading this after October 17 2020, then you can find my video on the special "60 for 60" page at ITV Coronation Street website.
You can watch the short video below... and do stay for the end when a very special, surprise visitor pops in.

Really loving how they include captions in their social media now, so that we deaf people can follow and feel included! Super job!
