Play the Coronation Street picture game

With thanks to @Soap_Watcher_ and @TomBryant77 on twitter for sending in yet another great Coronation Street picture game for us this week.  Let's call it PiCorrie!

In response to last week's PicCorrie, this week is a bit harder. There are no clues either. This week the pictures are those of past, present or future Corrie characters or places.  Have fun!

Fab Photo Friday - October 31st 2014

It's Friday again so it's time for this week's fab Coronation Street photo. I quite like the idea of Jenny Bradley coming back, not only are there issues with Rita to examine but it should be interesting seeing her teaming up with Kevin. How will Sally feel? Is she really over him? Here's a picture of her father having a bit of a lie down during a hectic filming schedule in Blackpool.

Spot the Corrie prop - October 31st 2014

As expected last week's prop poser proved to be pretty straightforward with lots of correct answers. The first to post that the maple syrup can be found in the Barlow's was Vicky who wins nothing at all but our hearty congratulations.

This week we look to the humble toaster again and as whereabouts on the Coronation Street set you would find this fine example.

Pics: Coronation Street - Horrible Hallowe'en 2014

It's Hallowe'en, and time to give these fabulous archive pictures another airing for our Coronation Street horrible Hallowe'en blog post.  All the pictures below are from the Hallowe'en episode in 2003 when Fred Elliot threw a Hallowe'en party in the Rovers Return.


The episode aired on Friday 31st October 2003 and was written by Daran Little.


One of the great lines in the episode came from Jack Duckworth: "You've heard of the Bride of Frankenstein? Well I'm the husband of Vera Duckworth."



You can read the 2003 Hallowe'en episode synopsis on Wikipedia.

Coronation Street bus crash revealed for 2015

In a recent interview, Stuart Blackburn hinted that there will be an upcoming tragedy. He said:

"Yes, coming up in the New Year, there is a real tragedy that's going to affect a dozen or so of our characters. Last year we had David and the car crash and of course that was a stunt, but it genuinely felt like it had come from story. It wasn't us suddenly deciding that we needed to do something spectacular to get the viewers.

"It's the same with what we're planning, because it'll come from a relatively long-running story. It is going to be spectacular and a little bit heartbreaking!"


Now, ITV has released a few details. There will be an Underworld Works outing in the New Year. They all head out in a mini-van driven by Steve McDonald but there's a crash and some of the factory workers will end up in hospital with one person in critical condition. They'll film it before Christmas to air in the New Year.

As for Mr. Blackburn's remark about it coming from a long running story, I reckon if Steve is driving, it's only going to add to his current problems. In the state he's in, and he's only going to get worse before he gets better, I speculate that his attention gets distracted and a mistake ends up in this tragedy. Maybe that will be the catalyst that finally pushes him to get help. What do you reckon?

Coronation Street autumn spoilers on video

ITV have released video with spoilers and previews of upcoming storylines over the next month or so. We start off with Rob and Tracy's wedding falling apart, Rob doing a runner quite literally. We get hints of the fallout but it doesn't give away if Rob is caught or not or how.

We meet Michael's son Gavin and from the little we see here, it seems like he might be a bit grasping. I get a bad feeling about this! Kylie's involvement with Callum continues, as well. It all looks quite exciting!
