The Big 60 is now being build as a big community event.
Ken or Rita's deaths?
I can’t get into Corrie at the minute because it’s only 25 mins with no double episode. I couldn’t tell you what happened last night at all.
Oh come on - Toyah has been going out with Imran for like 5 minutes and they’re fostering a child?!
These people move on far too quickly.
I wouldn't mind seeing Ken go but Rita needs to stay. I wonder how they'll mark the 60th.
God I really hope Leanne isn’t around in 60 years time.
She’s just rotten. Such an absolute bore. @Mo Mouse
The opening scene where Leanne was running to the Barlow's house was clearly recorder very recently because there was social distancing going on, but that wasn't the only clue. Nick's hair was two inches longer. Then later they must have used scenes filmed before the lockdown because Nick's hair was short again.
The first picture was at breakfast and the second one was a couple of hours later. They didn't even try to make it look somewhat similar.
Och he's a pain in the ass as well. And his hair.
Paula Wilcox to rejoin Corrie after 51 years in a guest role this month
PAULA Wilcox had a small part on Coronation Street 51 years ago – now the telly veteran is about to return to the soap to tackle a much juicier role.
The actor is best known for playing Chrissy Plummer in Seventies sitcom Man About the House with Richard O’Sullivan and Sally Thomsett.
Paula will be in Corrie this month as Elaine, the former partner of Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholemew) who’s spent months torturing wife Yasmeen (Shelley King).
Yasmeen is now in prison awaiting trial for attacking her husband, but Weatherfield’s new arrival might just be her saviour.
A TV insider said: “If Yasmeen pursues the defence that she snapped after endless cruelty at the hands of Geoff, then Elaine’s testimony could prove invaluable. But as this is Corrie it won’t be plain sailing, there’ll be quite a few twists and turns along the way.
“Paula is only making a guest appearance for a few weeks but it’s a role she’ll relish sinking her teeth into. After all she’ll play a pivotal part in a storyline that’s had the nation gripped."
Paula couldn’t be joining the storyline at a more interesting time. As Yasmeen languishes behind bars, Geoff is still on the Street, but his true identity is slowly being revealed by daughter-in-law Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dyvenor).
As a survivor of domestic abuse herself, she’s shocked to discover she has an offender in her own family.
Paula is no stranger to the cobbles, having first appeared in 1969 as Janice, the younger sister of Ray Langton, played by Neville Buswell.
Paula went on to star in other big shows including The Lovers, opposite Richard Beckinsale, the father of movie star Kate Beckinsale.
Love Paula Wilcox, I bet she will be fab.
Absolutely LOATHE the hypocrite, arsonist, thieving, insurance swindling, drug taking brass.
With a passion.
Agree dear @Mo Mouse
We are all caught up with the virus, yet I was confused at Alya and Ryan in the hospital with no face mask. I thought that rule was there from the start?
I do think it's terribly, terribly sad what daniel is doing with the escort. I never saw that coming.
I do hope they don't go madly overboard though in the show itself, with the 60th anniversary celebrations.
It's funny how viewers expect these anniversary weeks to feature references to past storylines and characters to recognise the occasion.
I recently watched the 30th anniversary week of episodes from December 1990, and can honestly say that there were no references to any departed characters from the past, or any references to any storylines from years before... So why should any other anniversary week be treated any differently?
Did anyone spot the mannequin?
