Killer Corrie Quotes (No.1) - Ena Sharples

Next Monday sees a great tram crash in Coronation Street. It sets the scene for a week of deaths, a wedding and a birth - just a normal week in suburban Manchester then!

It will culminate with the soap celebrating its 50th birthday next Thursday, 9th December with a live 1 hour episode.

To pay tribute to the world's longest current runnning soap, I'm going to blog a quote from Corrie's past each day up until the big day.

My first quote comes from the original Cobbles Battle-axe, Ena Sharples. With her hairnet and her milk stout in the Rovers Return Snug alongside Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst, she has become a legend that has spawned the likes of Hilda Ogden, Blanche Hunt, Vera Duckworth and in other soaps the likes of Lou Beale, Pauline Fowler and Annie Sugden.

So, here goes, quote No.1...

"There's some very peculiar people in this Street" - Ena Sharples.

    A classic line but so long ago that only the golden oldies would remember.

  2. Indeed Trish.

    I was born in 1982 so I can't remember the early days but I've got a 40th anniversary book from 2000 which gives me a cracking insight into the years that I don't personally recall.

    As you can see, I'm a big fan!

    Keep reading - I've got a quote a day for the next week!
