I had the misfortune to catch a bit of Corrie last week ( used to watch them all but they all got too irritating) and decided that the reason I don't like them is that they are in the main populated by weak men and crazy women ;-)

Corrie used to be quite funny in the old days. Ken must have had a relationship several times with every female and male who entered the cast.

Have not watched a soap episode since I had Sky Plus (5 years ago). OH watches Emmerdale but am usually still out at work.

Just read the synopses of the soaps in the TV guides, Dizzi. You can become an instant expert on the train and it only needs a few minutes homework each week.:-D

Even I know who Ena Sharples is, here in Australia. I used to watch it more than twenty years ago - and it was an 'old' version even then.
It has now started up again on one of the new digital chanels - but I have no intention of looking at it.

Ken Barlow annoys me, Island. As if he'd be chasing women at his age but I read somewhere that he likes to flirt with the young women on the set.

Perhaps this is the reason he doesn't look his age ? ( Ken Barlow)

William Patrick Harry Roache MBE is an English actor, best known for his role as Ken Barlow in the soap opera Coronation Street. Wikipedia
Born: April 25, 1932 (age 80), Ilkeston, Derbyshire

I can confirm that tomcatting stops at 53.:-(

Not sure what age Ken is supposed to be in Corrie. Don't think it is 79. But he is over 70.
