No. 7

The finished No. 7 fills the empty plot

23rd November 1981: For sixteen years, no house had stood on Coronation Street in the spot vacated when No. 7 had suddenly collapsed in 1965. The council installed a bench and vandals sprayed graffiti on the grey party walls with No.s 5 and 9. In 1981 Charles Hardcastle, owner of the ground rents, died and the residents were offered the purchase of the said rents for the princely sum of £48. Ever eager to make a sum of money, Len Fairclough bought the vacant site on 23rd November and made plans to rebuild No. 7 but on more modern lines. Next door neighbours Bert and Ivy Tilsley were none too pleased as they had made plans to purchase the plot themselves and extend their own house. Len's wife Rita was also annoyed, thinking Len was throwing away his money. She changed her mind though seven months later when she saw the finished property and insisted they swap homes and sell No. 9 instead.

Kylie Platt

Kylie

Kylie Platt in 2011

Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
