Coronation Street is a British soap opera which chronicles the lives of the residents of a backstreet terrace in Weatherfield, a fictional town in the north of England. Created by Tony Warren and produced by Granada Television and then ITV plc for the country's main commercial network, it was first transmitted on 9th December 1960 and is the longest running drama series in the world still in production.

18 August

Len Fairclough explains to the proud new owner of No. 9 that they're just saying goodbye to "the old dump"...

18th August 1982: When Len Fairclough built the smart new No. 7 in the gap in the terrace which had existed since 1965, he had every intention of selling the house and making a tidy profit. Wife Rita had other ideas though and insisted they sell their present home, No. 9, and move into the modern house themselves. Len refused but Rita sold the old terrace to pensioner Chalkie Whitely and he reluctantly gave in. Rather than have a house-warming party, they had a house-leaving party in No. 9 on the eve of their departure where Hilda Ogden criticised the choice of cheaper pink salmon on the sandwiches and Stan spilled beer on the carpets. Chalkie walked into the festivities and was not pleased to see the shenanigans taking place in what would be his property within twenty-four hours. Although Rita was adamant that no one would go into No. 7, Bet Lynch ignored her and led a conga dance into the new house, leaving a morose Chalkie behind to contemplate any damage to his new little palace...

Jenny Bradley in 2016

Jenny Bradley was Rita Fairclough's foster daughter and daughter of Alan Bradley. Jenny came to live with Rita in 1986, just after her mother Pat died in a road accident. Alan had left Pat and Jenny eight years earlier but he was traced and re-entered her life. Jenny lived most of her teenage years in Coronation Street under Alan and Rita's watchful eyes, giving them no end of trouble with her wayward behaviour. When Alan completed a prison sentence for swindling and assaulting Rita, Jenny supported him and blamed Rita for his death in Blackpool. In 1989, she started studying Environmental Studies at Manchester Polytechnic but in 1990 she was thrown off the course and early the following year she left Weatherfield to live with a married man, Robert Weston.
