"'Corrie' used to be great when it had people like : Street battle-axe 'Ena Sharples', nosey parker & gossip 'Hilda Ogden', loveable tart 'Elsie Tanner', toffee nosed Landlady 'Annie Walker', meek and mild 'Minnie Cordwell' Hot-Pot Queen 'Betty Turpin', flirty barmaid 'Bet Lynch', grumpy old 'Albert Tatlock', prim & proper Emily Neugent, and so on. All great actors and actresses in real life, many of whom trod the boards & starred in films for decades before joining Coronation street. Oh happy days !
But I lost interest when they started getting a load of 'kids' who couldn't act - into the show. All they seem to do is shout at each other without a personality between them. I rarely (if ever) watch it now ! "
