Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Coronation Street (or Corrie) is a British Prime Time Soap on ITV, which follows the ups and downs in the lives of the residents of a typical working-class street in a Salford, Manchester neighbourhood.It has been running for a very, very, VERY long time, first airing on 9 December 1960, and will probably keep going until the end of time. It has been running long enough that a character in their eighties may originally have been introduced as a sexy young twentysomething, or one in their mid-fifties may have first appeared as a newborn baby. Many assume (thanks to ITV, who is to blame) that it is the longest-running soap in the world, but The Archers (which began on BBC radio in 1952) would likely say otherwise.What Coronation Street can claim is that it is the longest-running soap opera on television.note This record became available in 2017: Guiding Light spent from 1952-2009, 57 years, on television, with Corrie's 2018 being its 58th year. It will not, however, be able to claim to be the "longest-running soap" title until the BBC cancels The Archers. Also viewable in Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Curious Americans can watch it on Hulu (or the CBC, if they can receive it).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The show is often on about five times a week (as do most British soap operas) and has an omnibus at the end of the week. The series began showing at least two a week, and has gradually increased throughout its run-time. In the summer of 2016, it was announced that their schedule would be increased to six episodes a week in the autumn of 2017, and the television set was going to be extended.Classic user of the Soap Wheel.Please Note: As an ongoing soap with no reruns outside of the weekly omnibus, spoilers will not be tagged unless they refer to events that have yet to happen on-screen.

Anyone Can Die
 Coronation Street / int_1237828f
comment
Anyone Can Die: Due to this, it's quite common for the producers to film a number of alternate endings/outcomes when a major character is going to die or be murdered in order to keep the show spoiler-free. They also do this quite often in on-screen court cases, filming both 'Guilty' and 'Not Guilty' outcomes and deciding later which one to use.

comment
Diabolus ex Nihilo: Some villains in the show don't always have their backstories explained to the audience or have their histories elaborated on. Some villains have been on the show long enough to have their backstories shown to the audience but some villains, like Geoff Metcalfe and Josh Tucker, for example, don't have that. Some villains are just written to represent a problem and have to be defeated through a united front. They don't explain how they were created, what motivated them to do evil, and how certain aspects of their life have moulded them into the villains they are now.

Darker and Edgier
 Coronation Street / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: The central villains of the series in 2017-2018 have been known for controversy and for having very dark storylines. Pat Phelan became a serial killer who murdered several men, Nathan Curtis ran a prostitution ring which catered late teens and young adult women to older men. Neil Clifton was a police officer who was under Nathan's employ and a customer who raped Bethany Platt. In March of 2018, David Platt was drugged and raped by Josh Tucker, a mechanic/fitness instructor who pretended to be his friend and finally in May 2018, Aiden Connor committed suicide as a result of untreated depression. It's been an ongoing trend since the days of the Richard Hillman saga, but these storylines attracted a greater level of attention.

Never Trust a Trailer
 Coronation Street / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: Deliberately invoked during the promotion of the show's Fiftieth Anniversary week, which was given the tagline "Four Funerals and a Wedding," implying that four major characters would bite the dust. As it turned out, three major characters actually did die, namely Ashley Peacock, Molly Dobbs and Charlotte Hoyle. The fourth casualty was a nameless background extra, who got mentioned in passing by a firefighter during the live episode. It's thought that the producers were also considering offing Rita Fairclough in the live episode, but ultimately decided against it and 'killed off' the extra to make sure the tagline was still accurate.

Mr. Fanservice: Plenty. Though probably the best example was Adam Rickitt, the second actor to play Nick Tilsley. Perhaps a touch of Viewers Are Morons as well, since Nick's original actor, Warren Jackson was sacked and replaced by Rickitt simply for not being sexy enough, despite the widespread opinion that Jackson was a much better actor than Rickitt. Jason took on this role in the late 2000s, finding many reasons to be shirtless on-screen.

Cock Fight Chesney Brown and Daniel Barlow over Sinead Tinker. Overtime Chesney gave up and decided to leave Sinead at the altar for personal reasons outside of the rivalry while Sinead and Daniel eventually got together again through Carla Connor's persuasion. Zeedan Nazir and Kate Connor over Rana Nazir. This isn't as homophobic as it seems, both women had an affair with each other while Rana was married to Zeedan. Zeedan only agreed to a false marriage from Rana's homophobic parents to gain funding for his restaurant as well as try to salvage whatever was left from his broken marriage.

He also poisoned Eccles, got Amy pregnant and threatened to hurt her if she or Simon ever spoke about it. Vicky refuses to believe Tyler's crimes and openly insults everybody who looks at her.

Attention Whore: David Platt's usual motivation for all his dirty deeds (the other reason being that he's usually just bored. He has changed considerably, though, since he married Kylie. His sister Sarah revelled in attention. Rosie and Sophie Webster too — in Sophie's case, it was more to do with her parents spending so much time fussing over Rosie or their own squabbling to pay as much attention to her.

Strictly Formula
 Coronation Street / int_3f1aadeb
comment
Strictly Formula: The stories can become a bit repetitive but the only difference being that the problem is held by a different character but there is some noticeable repetitiveness. The pub or factory is always set on fire or destroyed whenever there is a new owner. Someone always has an affair, often coincides with a sudden self-discovery or admission of their sexuality. Bonus points, if the new relationship ends because the adulterer has another affair during their relationship. If an arc villain doesn't face the consequences of their actions, they either die or permanently leave the street. A new character is introduced and is eventually revealed to be related to another character. Either as a half-sibling or as a biological parent. There is an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. A character is bullied for one reason or another. There are problems with addiction, money, homophobia and racism. Introduce a new, serious villain who lacks a cause or a relatable backstory and is generally depicted as a symbol of a specific evil than an actual person. Even the famed tram crash for the 50th anniversary was a rehash of a freight train derailment in 1967 that killed Sonia Peters and a family who lived on Viaduct Street and trapped Ena Sharples.

Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome
 Coronation Street / int_3fafbfd4
comment
Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: There have been numerous occasions when actors have looked noticeably older than the characters they portray but like most other British soaps, SORAS only happens rarely and when it does, the character only ages a year or two. Sophie Webster inexplicably started secondary school at the age of ten but has always remained the same age. Twins Peter and Susan Barlow (born 1965) were aged up a year in 1978 to tie in with a storyline where Peter wanted to join the navy. They had returned to their original ages by 1986. Twins Aadi and Asha Alahan, similar to the examples above, were born in 2006 but celebrated their tenth birthday in 2015 and started secondary school in 2016 when they should have been in their final year of primary school. Although the characters were officially the correct age in accordance to their birth date, David Platt, Simon Barlow and a few other boys' voices started breaking at unusually young ages. In one notable case, two kids went upstairs to wash their hands and reappeared about five years older in the next episode.

Becoming the Mask: Graeme Proctor let people think that he two timed Tina for Xin, so they think that she's a victim and he's a jerk who cheated on her. It was really Tina's plan to get Xin a Citizenship Marriage. And then he really did cheat on Tina with Xin.

Grand Romantic Gesture: Gemma's wealthy boyfriend Henry Newton won her back by buying her the Rovers Return. However this slowly turns into a case of Reality Ensues, since neither of them have any business experience and both are reckless with money. Which results in the Rovers being put back up for sale after Henry was unable to get the money to buy it.

Took a Level in Jerkass
 Coronation Street / int_50accba9
comment
Tooka Levelin Jerkass:Whilst he was still a bit of a rogue in his earlier years, Terry Duckworth was nowhere as bad as his later appearances in the show. Overtime he grew increasingly worse with each visit to the street, such as selling his son Tommy to his other grandparents, selling a dodgy car which led to someone's death, not donating a kidney to his other son, and leaving a now older Tommy to deal with a loan shark that Terry had got in debt with.In his early appearances Jim Mc Donald was a far more well meaning hardworking family man who loved his wife and two sons. In the mid-1990s he showed a more aggressive side when he assaulted Liz after finding out she had cheated on him with an army buddy twenty years prior when he was away fighting. Despite this he was still an ordinary character, but with his guest returns (especially in later years) he has grown into a far more nastier and antagonistic person, such as tormenting Peter Barlow in prison (where Jim is running a crime racket smuggling in alcohol), then setting up a scam in 2018 in which he made out to Liz that their dead baby daughter Katy was still alive due to a mix up at the hospital, although in reality the grown up "Katy" as actually his lover Hannah. All this was to get revenge on his family for "abandoning" him when he was in prison, and he was rightfully sent packing when exposed.

No Bisexuals
 Coronation Street / int_5679208c
comment
No Bisexuals: Todd Grimshaw, after a loving relationship with a girl, discovers he is also attracted to males. Apparently this means he will only ever be attracted to males in future. What's more is that after the break-up, Todd admitted that he did still love Sarah. When Marcus Dent decided to enter into a heterosexual relationship with Maria, various characters (and fans, at that) expressed their derision and believed he was lying to himself by pretending he was straight. Apparently, it's impossible to be attracted to both men and women and once you become gay you can never be attracted to women again! The only person to even mention the possibility that he might be bisexual is Gail McIntyre and it is never seriously considered beyond an aside comment she made in the Rovers. This was Doubly Subverted, as he slept with Todd Grimshaw in 2013/2014 and this he can only ever be 'gay' again. The first time a bisexual character appeared (dating Michelle), he was revealed to be a former partner of Sean's - and immediately resumed sleeping with him. When Steve witnessed them kissing, he told Michelle that Sonny was 'gay' instead of bi. Almost averted with Rana Habeeb/Nazir, sort of. When discussing her daughter-in-law's affair, Yasmeen concedes that Rana could be bisexual instead of lesbian. Rana has not yet claimed to be bisexual. Finally subverted with solicitor Paula Martin. She described herself as bisexual with a former long marriage to a man before she started a casual relationship with Sophie.

Rebuilt Set: Several times over the show's history. Most recently and most notably, in late 2013. The facilities were moved from the long-standing Quay Street site to a new one in Trafford Wharf. Doing this meant that they could make the street life-sized (as opposed to the three quarters size that it had been before). It also meant they could add new interiors to some of the buildings which had been previously been filmed in studio sets, such as Carla's factory and Streetcars. The new set was first seen in the episode airing on 10 March 2014.

Kids Are Cruel
 Coronation Street / int_63389b0b
comment
Grace Piper, Faye's one-time friend. Despite her young age, she was very manipulative and loved causing trouble just to see how people would react with some of her nastiest behavior including driving brain-damaged Nick into having a public breakdown, throwing rocks at Mary's mobile home and holding down Simon (with Faye's help) and recording him as she forcefully put makeup on him and then put the video online. The latter offense was illegal and although she eventually received an Offscreen Karma for her actions, it still feels like this trope since her behavior was never directly called out by anyone.

comment
Intimate Open Shirt: The soap loves this one. While Mike is over at Penny's, he starts off fully suited up. Next time we see him, the jacket is gone and the tie loosened. The third time, his tie is gone and shirt opened by a couple of buttons - as a clear indicator they've done the deed. Ashley while staying with Claire for a romantic weekend away. He begins with his shirt buttoned up, but more buttons come undone as he gets drunker. Too bad Claire passes out before they can do anything. Gail barges in on Nick and Natasha, clearly about to do the deed - if Nick's shirt is anything to go by. Sexual tension between Dev and Sunita (while he's still engaged to Maya) is illustrated by Dev's shirt being like this when she walks in on him drunk.

Driven to Suicide: Memorably Katie Harris, after her mother was falsely convicted of murdering her father. Katie left a note confessing to the murder and committed suicide by eating lots of sugary foods (she was diabetic). Hayley Cropper too, when she found out she had months to live. Natasha attempted this after Gail busted her for lying to Nick about her pregnancy.note Nick rejected her at first but reconciled with her literally as she was coming home from the abortion clinic, before she could tell him. Thankfully Natasha was saved. Aidan Connor committed suicide as a result of untreated and undiagnosed depression.

Worst Wedding Ever
 Coronation Street / int_6f5c80fc
comment
Worst Wedding Ever: It wouldn't be Coronation Street without these, now would it?: At Steve and Karen wedding in 2004, Tracy revealed that Steve was the father of her newborn daughter, Amy, which prompted Roy and Hayley, who she had sold her daughter to and who named the little girl Patience, to leave in a hurry with her and for Karen to belt her in the face, leaving her with a black eye. She still had that black eye when it came time for Amy's Christening some days later. Karma would bite the usually invincible Tracy in the ass years later at both of her weddings to Steve. The first one had his ex-wife, Becky, who was unjustly blamed for pushing her down a flight of stairs and causing her to miscarry their twin boys, reveal that she fell down the stairs and had already miscarried the twins long beforehand, prompting a disgusted Steve to annul the marriage. The second had her learning through a misunderstanding from Leanne that Steve was the father of Oliver. Having already given Steve a bloody nose in the aftermath, at the reception Tracy tells Oliver and their guests how rotten his parents are and brings up how every guy Leanne ends up with either leaving, dead or sleeping with her sister, which causes Leanne to flip out and smush the cake in her face and they engage in a catfight. As Steve cries for help breaking them up, Tim just joyfully records the mayhem.

Henpecked Husband: Nearly every male character that's married. It's obvious it's the women who really rule the roost in Weatherfield. Aversions have a tendency to end up six feet under.

Put on a Bus: Kevin Webster, whose actor was facing sexual offence charges and a trial in real life, is said to be visiting his father Bill in Germany, who is sick. He was found not guilty and came back in early 2014. Ken Barlow, for similar reasons to Kevin, was out of the show visiting family in Canada while his actor was investigated. He was later found not guilty. Ryan Connor. Notable in that his mother has scarcely mentioned him since his most recent departure in 2013.

Remember the New Guy?: Xin Chiang was first introduced in February 2011, for the purpose of a storyline involving Graeme marrying her so that she could stay in the UK. You wouldn't have realised this if you weren't already watching the show, since Tina kept remarking that Xin was her best friend and she already had existing relationships with the likes of Graeme Proctor and David Platt, despite never having been mentioned once in the previous two and a half years Tina had been on the show. Kelly Crabtree —- the first time we ever saw her, she had just left her supposedly longtime job at the factory that half the other characters work at.

Celebrity Paradox
 Coronation Street / int_7b8b3def
comment
Celebrity Paradox: Nobody ever watches TV, certainly not at 19:30 every weekday evening. For the same reason, a lot of the magazines in the background (specifically, those that would feature soap stars on the cover) are bland name replacements for the actual publications, even after Product Placement was allowed under UK law; largely because they would either have the characters of Coronation Street on the cover and thus fully invoke this trope, or those of competing soaps which the producers would obviously not want to advertise however subtly on their show. In a 2001 episode, Candice mentions "Kym from Popstars". She's referring to Kym Marsh, who would later go on to play Michelle Connor.

Live Episode: Between 9 December 1960 and 3 February 1961, all of the Friday episodes were broadcast live. As part of the Fortieth and Fiftieth Anniversary celebrations, the 9 December episodes were also broadcast live. There have been several since the milestones, leading to accusations of Ratings Stunt by audiences and critics.

Straight Gay
 Coronation Street / int_83b44e80
comment
When Marcus Dent decided to enter into a heterosexual relationship with Maria, various characters (and fans, at that) expressed their derision and believed he was lying to himself by pretending he was straight. Apparently, it's impossible to be attracted to both men and women and once you become gay you can never be attracted to women again! The only person to even mention the possibility that he might be bisexual is Gail McIntyre and it is never seriously considered beyond an aside comment she made in the Rovers. This was Doubly Subverted, as he slept with Todd Grimshaw in 2013/2014 and this he can only ever be 'gay' again.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Coronation Street / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: Done rather egregiously with Les Battersby. After his actor was suspended following a scandal, the character was temporarily Put on a Bus, supposedly going on tour as a roadie for a Status Quo tribute band. However, his actor ended up being fired while suspended, so viewers expected a Bus Crash to explain why he wasn't coming back from tour. Instead ... nothing. He was never mentioned again. This meant he vanished from the face of the earth, leaving his wife, adopted son and also an ex-wife (and two daughters who came and went) never speaking of him again or wondering where he went. Finally averted in 2011, five years after he'd vanished, by Les now being mentioned (and things like cards from him or photos of him being around) as normal, when appropriate. Predictably, they are treating it as though they had never stopped mentioning him, and don't explain where he is or why he vanished.

Back from the Dead: Averted — unlike other soaps, when someone dies in Corrie, they usually stay dead. Teased, in the case of Richard Hillman, when his widow Gail started to receive cards from her deceased serial killer husband. Turns out it was her son David, playing a sick joke. Played Straight with Andy. Not that it did him much good. Also played straight with Gary Windass, though photos of him on set had been uploaded to the internet before the episode in which he "died" had been broadcast.

Your Cheating Heart

Your Cheating Heart: Common, amongst other neighbours, colleagues and spouse's family members. The king of this in the recent years would probably go to Peter Barlow, who married about four times (including one instance of bigamy) and cheated on his wife within a few months/weeks/days/hours before or after the wedding. What really annoyed viewers was when friends and Barlow family members defended his behaviour, or when the women that should know better agreed to marry him.

To hammer the point home, after he was charged he apologised to the people he attacked.

Crapsack World
 Coronation Street / int_994928f9
comment
Crapsack World: Blanche Hunt's view of the world. Frankly, Weatherfield itself, considering the amount of deaths/accidents/general misery present over the years. It's a wonder people still move to the street, considering pretty much every house/building has had multiple deaths in them (including a number of murders). Taken Up to Eleven with the Fiftieth Anniversary special, with a freak tram accident demolishing one end of the street and killing/seriously wounding a number of residents - an echo of a freight rain derailment from the line's railway days in 1967, which trapped longtime character Ena Sharples and killed several unseen characters. Saying that, compared to Walford, Weatherfield is the happiest place on Earth. Also of note is that a study showed that living on Coronation Street is actually safer than living in real-life Salford. Granted, that's one street against an entire city.

Family-Unfriendly Death: Most on-screen deaths tend to be non-gory ends such as heart attacks, while more gruesome deaths usually receive Gory Discretion Shots.

Turns out it was just a joke Graeme was playing on Ashley, after Ashley's wife told him about Fred.

Continuity Nod: One of the highlights of the show is that it still features regular references and callbacks to older characters and storylines, often from decades ago. Hardly an episode goes by without a nod, whether it be to something two months old or twenty years old. Possibly the biggest example is the 2011 return of Dennis Tanner, a character last seen on the show in 1968.

Canon Discontinuity
 Coronation Street / int_a32334b4
comment
Canon Discontinuity seems to be in effect in regards to the storyline relating to Michelle Connor discovering her son was switched at birth. After the storyline ended in 2008, it has never been mentioned again! In fact, during the 2012 stoyline when Tracy Barlow dated Ryan Connor, simply to spite Steve McDonald for rekindling his relationship with Michelle, he was explicitly referred to as her only son. Likewise, when Tracy revealed that she was pregnant with his child and that Steve tried to pay her off to have an abortion, she claimed Michelle wouldn't have done it when she was pregnant with Ryan ... with everyone seemingly forgetting that he is not actually her biological son! Soon to be averted when Michelle's biological son arrives on the street for a 2018 storyline.

Grandparent Favoritism: Notoriously grumpy Blanche was more likely to defend Tracy than she was Deirdre, and went out of her way to provide for her. This becomes apparent in 2003 when Tracy became pregnant via a one-night stand; that Christmas sees Blanche gifting her a flat with money that was to go towards Deirdre's inheritance, in the hope that she kept the grandchild instead of giving it to the Croppers. Needless to say, her daughter was understandably furious.

Karma Houdini
 Coronation Street / int_a70223

Karma would bite the usually invincible Tracy in the ass years later at both of her weddings to Steve. The first one had his ex-wife, Becky, who was unjustly blamed for pushing her down a flight of stairs and causing her to miscarry their twin boys, reveal that she fell down the stairs and had already miscarried the twins long beforehand, prompting a disgusted Steve to annul the marriage. The second had her learning through a misunderstanding from Leanne that Steve was the father of Oliver. Having already given Steve a bloody nose in the aftermath, at the reception Tracy tells Oliver and their guests how rotten his parents are and brings up how every guy Leanne ends up with either leaving, dead or sleeping with her sister, which causes Leanne to flip out and smush the cake in her face and they engage in a catfight. As Steve cries for help breaking them up, Tim just joyfully records the mayhem.

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: After fatally beating Charlotte Hoyle to death shortly before the tram crash, John Stape later decided to place her body near the crash site, hoping to make it look as if she had been struck and killed by debris during the crash. A policewoman found him, and he claimed to have dragged her out of the debris — whereupon the policewoman examined her body and found that she wasn't actually dead. In a subversion of the trope, it turned out she had massive brain damage and would only have lived on in a vegetative state, resulting in her family deciding to pull the plug on her.

Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse
 Coronation Street / int_ad17a1ac
comment
Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: A recurring theme in the show is that nobody in the show has an excuse for their actions and if a character tries to deliver vigilante justice, then they'll be liable to prosecution if the authorities catch up to them. The double standard does come into effect from time to time; if a woman has an affair then the act is displayed as an innocent mistake and the man's reaction is depicted as disproportionate. If the man has an affair, then the woman is portrayed as having every right to ruin his life. However, this was deconstructed with Aiden Connor, who was driven to suicide when Eva went too far in taking revenge against him for having an affair. She was wracked with guilt and tried to make peace with Aiden's family but to no avail, forcing her to fight for custody over the baby.

Plenty. Though probably the best example was Adam Rickitt, the second actor to play Nick Tilsley.

Loophole Abuse: In a poker showdown between Mike Baldwin and Fred Elliot, Fred goes all-in, only for Mike to surprise him with a further raise; his underwear factory against Fred’s butcher shop. Mike justifies this by pointing out that they are, after all, playing the no-limit rule. However, the no-limit rule only means that there is no upper-limit on what a player can wager from their chip stack during a round of betting. It does not allow participants to bet assets that are outside of play. Given that the consequences of Fred losing the hand was stretched out over multiple episodes with no-one pointing this out, most likely this was a case of Artistic License.

Retcon: Surprisingly rare, but Mike Baldwin's nephew Danny (and his family) being introduced was certainly one, as Mike had previously been stated to be an only child. Ivy Tilsley's an interesting case. Introduced as a secondary factory girl with the identically pronounced surname Tyldesley, she variously referred to her husband as Wilf, or Alfred, or Jack, and claimed to have been unable to bear a child. Then, Jack was brought briefly in as a character. A few years later, her friend Vera's husband also named Jack was introduced, initially off-screen, and Ivy, now given a twenty-year-old son named Brian, was blessed with a new husband - Bert, whom she was allegedly married to for twenty-odd years. The showrunner, Bill Podmore joked that Ivy was a bigamist. Though considering the character, she may have been such a tart in her youth. It was made clear that Susan Barlow had an abortion in 1987 because she wasn't ready to have children. She left the show a few weeks later but in 2001 it was revealed she had never actually aborted and now had a son called Adam. Worth noting that her father visited her numerous times over the years but never seemed to meet or even hear of his grandson. Canon Discontinuity seems to be in effect in regards to the storyline relating to Michelle Connor discovering her son was switched at birth. After the storyline ended in 2008, it has never been mentioned again! In fact, during the 2012 stoyline when Tracy Barlow dated Ryan Connor, simply to spite Steve McDonald for rekindling his relationship with Michelle, he was explicitly referred to as her only son. Likewise, when Tracy revealed that she was pregnant with his child and that Steve tried to pay her off to have an abortion, she claimed Michelle wouldn't have done it when she was pregnant with Ryan ... with everyone seemingly forgetting that he is not actually her biological son! Soon to be averted when Michelle's biological son arrives on the street for a 2018 storyline. Apparently, David Platt tried to 'kill' his brother Nick — yes, he did try to grab the wheel off him to stop him going home to reveal eveything to Kylie and Leanne but the accident itself was caused by a truck driver who didn't stop in time and ploughed into the stopped car in the middle of the road. Everyone wass acting as if David purposely caused that truck to appear or something! The fact that David himself is not denying his alleged murder attempt is not doing him any favors either.

My Beloved Smother
 Coronation Street / int_b58c51d8
comment
My Beloved Smother: Gail Platt. It's probably why her children are spoiled brats. She once rang Social Services after Bethany got an electric shock in Sarah and Todd's apartment — and when the social worker decided that the environment was still pretty stable for Bethany, Gail lied to say Sarah and Todd frequently left her alone in the apartment. Around the same time this was happening, a potential employer of Nick's rang the house about a job in Canada — and Gail also lied to say Nick didn't want the job, to stop him from moving. In some instances, the children have gotten away with crimes because Gail couldn't bare to have any of her kids away from her. For example, when David went to confess an attempted murder on his brother, Gail was adamant that the rest of the family tried to stop him.

Double Standard
 Coronation Street / int_b6cebad3
comment
The double standard does come into effect from time to time; if a woman has an affair then the act is displayed as an innocent mistake and the man's reaction is depicted as disproportionate. If the man has an affair, then the woman is portrayed as having every right to ruin his life. However, this was deconstructed with Aiden Connor, who was driven to suicide when Eva went too far in taking revenge against him for having an affair. She was wracked with guilt and tried to make peace with Aiden's family but to no avail, forcing her to fight for custody over the baby.

Enormous Engagement Ring
 Coronation Street / int_b7403860
comment
Enormous Engagement Ring: The hyper-jealous Eileen has seen her fireman boyfriend Paul out with an attractive firewoman from his station. Suspecting he is cheating, Eileen and her dozy friend Julie embarrass themselves — and him — by breaking into the station. Angry and disgruntled, Paul produces a large ornate engagement ring and says this is the reason he was out with his colleague. Her family own a jewellers' store and she was helping him choose a ring. She's the right person to find the best and most beautiful ring, and she also gets a discount on it for him, so it is larger and better than what he might have been able to afford in normal circumstances. Eileen is sick twice over on seeing the ring. One, because it is big and ornate, and visibly so; two, because her insane and irrational jealousy has made him contemplate breaking the whole thing off and taking it back to the shop for a refund.

The Unfavorite: Sophie Webster. David and Sarah Louise Platt, in comparison to Nick, their elder brother adored by Gail. Sarah and David would both argue that they are this to the family in general. The 2013 storyline for David Platt played this horrifyingly straight. Nick slept with David's wife Kylie only for her to discover she was pregnant a short time later. The rest of the family outright plotted to keep this a secret from David and never did anything more than give Nick a cross word. All this, only for the entire family to ostracise David after they learn he found out about the cheating and was behind the recent hate campaign against Nick. Nick's wife Leanne instantly forgave Nick for cheating on her, whilst the entire family treated David as some horrible monster for nearly killing Nick in a traffic accident — conveniently ignoring the fact David was in the van with Nick at the time and it truly was an accident. Peter Barlow frequently claims to be this.

It managed to subvert this as uber-bitch Tracy was constantly manipulating Steve to get money out of him for their daughter and sometimes just for the hell of it. One episode saw Steve get his own back where he insulted Tracy in the pub and compared her to his ex-wife. This pissed Tracy off and she punched him in the face. Steve immediately phoned the police and Tracy ended up spending the night in jail for assault.

Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Very common around the area. In many instances, an adulterous wife usually cheats on said ugly husband with a younger-looking and much handsomer stranger, but the ones that stay behind claim that it's worth it (such as Kirk's wife, who implied that Kirk is Good in Bed, as well as nice and caring).

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male
 Coronation Street / int_c0e3994b
comment
Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Very strongly averted with Kirsty Soames's treatment of Tyrone Dobbs. She violently attacked and scarred him — hitting him, forcing him against walls, slamming his fingers in doorways; cut him off from friends, destroyed his sentimental possessions such as photographs, and he stayed with her mostly because he was afraid she would take their daughter Ruby away if he reported her. None of this was played for laughs and Kirsty was portrayed as being a very dangerously violent and unhinged person to the viewer because of it, though most of the other characters had no idea. It managed to subvert this as uber-bitch Tracy was constantly manipulating Steve to get money out of him for their daughter and sometimes just for the hell of it. One episode saw Steve get his own back where he insulted Tracy in the pub and compared her to his ex-wife. This pissed Tracy off and she punched him in the face. Steve immediately phoned the police and Tracy ended up spending the night in jail for assault. Played with when it came to Dev and Tara. Tara found out Dev had cheated on her when they had broken up briefly and plotted to get revenge. She ended up plastering a nude photo of Dev on a billboard in the street with "Liar" written in an obvious place (in addition to rejecting his proposal in public). While Tara wasn't portrayed as being in the right (Dev's daughter Amber chewed her out for it), the whole thing had a slight comedic tone to it which wouldn't have been the case if Dev had put up a picture of Tara.

Internal Reveal: Tina's McIntyre's murder and the person who committed it (Rob Donovan) are shown to the viewers without any attempt to conceal it. However, apart from the two of them involved, no one else knows/knew and Peter Barlow is wrongly imprisoned and tried for the crime. This was subverted though in the case of Frank Foster's murder. The murder itself and who was responsible weren't shown and remained a mystery until Anne Foster (Frank's mother) confessed to it months later.

Monochrome Casting: Despite the show being set in Manchester, a city with substantial minority populations and a growing number of immigrants, Coronation Street resolutely ignored this for the best part of forty years and its inhabitants were 100% Caucasian and usually ethnically English. 100% Christian, too. Whilst there was one token Jewish character for a short while (Manchester has Britain's second-largest Jewish community). A few attempts were made. Lucille Soong played Billy Walker's Chinese girlfriend who was spurned by his racist mother, Annie. Ben Kingsley played a possibly intended-as-white character, there were a few black regular extras, and Angela Bruce played Ray Langton's mistress. Not much was done to remedy this until well into The '90s. When the producers remedied this by having the Desai family take over the corner shop However they mostly failed to click with audiences or the rest of the cast and were soon replaced with their cousin Dev Alahan who has been with the show ever since. Now joined by the Nazirs, who run the community centre or work at the factory, bistro, or medical centre.

Roaring Rampage of Revenge
 Coronation Street / int_ceec4df5
comment
Roaring Rampage of Revenge: David Platt had one after a massive Trauma Conga Line drove him over the edge, smashing every single thing he could find in the street with a piece of scaffolding pipe. Subverted, in that David didn't do it out of revenge, but because his mother refused to press charges for him pushing her down a flight of stairs. Another followed when he planned to fill a junker car with petrol tanks and drive it into the prison van carrying Clayton, Kylie's murderer, at the courthouse. Instead he swerved out of the way of someone in the street and rolled it, pinning two people underneath and inflicting serious burns on Anna Windass. September 2017 saw Eva Price and Adam Barlow team up on one. After finding out Aidan Connor had been unfaithful with Maria, Eva both pretended to be pregnant and went into bridezilla mode, demanding a lavish wedding (organized by a reluctant Maria) with the intent of squeezing Aidan dry. Adam, ostensibly to support Maria but really as part of a revenge plan for not getting a share of the factory that he believed himself entitled to, arranged for the factory to be emptied of machinery, stock, and furniture while the street was at the wedding - going so far as to take the roof.

Hypocrite: Sally Webster, because of her insistence that Fiz was involved with John Stape's crimes. Her justification was that Fiz must have known what her husband was doing, because the idea of her not realising was preposterous. Cue practically every other character responding with "You didn't realise what Kevin was doing." When the affair is exposed, she's furious at Kevin ... despite having an affair years ago with Ian Davenport that she never got caught for. After Peter Barlow publicly humiliated Leanne at their wedding for her affair with Nick Tilsley and Carla Connor for her attraction to the engaged Peter, who would he soon cheat on Leanne with and marry after their divorce? Brian Packham, giving David and Kylie Platt stick over what they give Max for his school dinners, whilst stuffing down a bag of chips and being in no physical shape to criticise anyone's eating habits. He even goes so far as to say that all teachers at the school are going to be checking what students bring to eat from home. Lampshaded by David and Kylie. David, who falls in love with the mother of the thug that killed his wife, snaps that "the apple doesn't rot far from the tree". The woman immediately points out the hypocrisy by listing all his crimes that she's heard about. Tracy Barlow, who has killed a lover in absolute cold blood, and manipulated everyone so that she appeared the victim, acted like Daniel's attempted murder of Ken, when the former was unstable due to being abandoned by both his parents, AND the latter had caused the termination of the former's baby was unforgivable. She later has used this behaviour towards Bethany Platt as well.

Unusually Uninteresting Sight: On Christmas Eve 2004, Tracy and Karen got into a knock-down, dragged-out fight after the former falsely accused the latter of killing her daughter, Amy (although the baby was safe with The Croppers, not that Tracy knew or cared). While fighting on the rooftop of Underworld in the rain and knocking down all the elaborate Christmas decorations during it, factory owner Danny Baldwin appeared amidst the fight and his first and only concern was over who would pay for the damages done to the factory (which ended up being Steve) and then leaving as quickly as he came.

All Girls Want Bad Boys: Charlie Stubbs, who, if not quite as sociopathic, was nonetheless a thoroughly obvious nasty piece of work whom women seemed to find irresistible. Unluckily for him, he ended up with Tracy Barlow, who was a full-blown sociopath. Katy Armstrong, Sarah Platt and Sarah's daughter Bethany all had a fling with Callum Logan even though everyone warned them that he was a dangerous thug who was probably just using them. It was of course, true.

Miscarriage of Justice
 Coronation Street / int_ddeaea82
comment
Miscarriage of Justice: More frequently than actual justice being played straight, it seems. Subverted with Tracy's murder trial in 2007. While she had intricately planned and set up the murder of Charlie Stubbs — making it seem like he was physically abusive to her and convincing her family and friends of this — and probably fully expected to be found innocent, the jury at her trial were not fooled and found her guilty. She played this straight in 2010, taking full advantage of that the forensic evidence expert that had handled her case falsified his qualifications, which sees her retried and released. Averted with Gail's trial for the murder of her husband, Joe in 2010. She is found not guilty (Joe had drowned to death on his boat in a lake in the Lake District. Tyrone was on trial for physically abusing Kirsty and probably would been found guilty had Kirsty herself not burst into his trial and admitted to everyone there that she was the one abusing him. Peter Barlow, who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering Tina and who only got out once real killer Rob was caught. Most recently Anna Windass, framed by Pat Phelan for assaulting Seb by pushing his ladder over. (Really he just fell.)

Not Quite Dead: John Stape. He falls off a hospital rooftop, lands on concrete, and looks pretty dead after he's hit the ground. A few minutes later, the police report that he's disappeared, indicating that he came round and was well enough to get up and run away.

The Chew Toy: Tyrone Dobbs. One girlfriend cheated on him with a footballer; his first wife had an affair (And child) with his best friend/business partner, before leaving him and telling him the child wasn't his, and eventually dying that same night after the tram crash; then his first girlfriend after Molly's death (And second wife) tried to drive him away from his friends, regularly abused him, briefly walked out on him with their unborn child, before framing him for abusing her. Curly Watts, another unfavored bad-luck magnet.

Flanderization
 Coronation Street / int_e5e6640b
comment
Flanderization: Sally Webster/Metcalfe. She went from being a somewhat pushy wife to an extremely pushy parent to an obsessive snob who looks down her nose on all her neighbours and colleagues. Gail Platt. She's never been too bright but was always a strong-willed matriarchal mother who took charge when her kids were trouble-making teens. In recent years though, she has turned into a spineless buffoon used almost solely for comic relief. There are, however, some moments when the old Gail shines through.

Hate Sink
 Coronation Street / int_e5fd8bc2
comment
Hate Sink: Tracy Barlow is the biggest example. Since her 2002 return she has made herself known for her constant bitchiness and gets away with just about everything, including murder. Often, whenever anything criminal occurs on the street, everyone points the finger at her. Charlie Stubbs. Callum Logan. The 2016 minor character Lauren who made her presence known as the school bully targeting specifically Bethany Platt. Even though many of her actions were worthy of at least a criminal record, she seemed to get away with it until a threat from David and a school expulsion seemed to chase her off for good. Nathan Curtis. Pat Phelan. Josh Tucker. Tyler Jefferies and his mother Vicky Jefferies. He corrupted Simon, is a gang leader, tried to abduct Simon for reporting his crime, put glass in his food, robbed and assaulted an old woman. He also poisoned Eccles, got Amy pregnant and threatened to hurt her if she or Simon ever spoke about it. Vicky refuses to believe Tyler's crimes and openly insults everybody who looks at her. She also got into a fight with Sinead, who was a pregnant cancer patient. (Granted, Vikki didn't know that). Nick Tilsley during the 2019 money laundering storyline. He stole from his grieving grandmother, blackmailed his brother and manipulated Leanne. When the police caught onto his activities, he attempted to pass the blame to David and blame his own activities on brain damage, claiming that David manipulated a man with brain damage. Even though he admitted his wrongdoings in court, he still got off scot-free while David got sent to jail. Geoff Metcalfe is Yasmeen Nazir's husband and has grown into one of the show's most hated characters for his abusive and controlling behaviour. This peaked when he killed Yasmeen's pet chicken, Charlotte, and tricked Yasmeen into eating her because she didn't make dinner for him.

Brainless Beauty
 Coronation Street / int_f26d5e66
comment
Brainless Beauty: Jason Grimshaw. In a subversion, Jason is a skilled construction worker; he's just not particularly bright. Rosie Webster. Arguably her finest moment was when she went to see a 3-D film and complained afterwards that the picture had been too dark and the effects literally flat. It turned out she had been wearing an ordinary pair of sun specs rather than the special polarised glasses. Like Jason, she does have some smarts — as in she went to a school for the gifted in her teens.

Easily Forgiven: Many families appear to get along with each other, even if they've tried to kill each other over pettiness in the past. Averted with Kevin Webster, and his affair with Molly Dobbs. It was several months before his wife Sally forgave him, and even then they didn't get back together. It took over a year for Molly's husband and Kevin's best friend Tyrone to even start rebuilding their friendship.

Product Placement
 Coronation Street / int_f511ea9b
comment
For the same reason, a lot of the magazines in the background (specifically, those that would feature soap stars on the cover) are bland name replacements for the actual publications, even after Product Placement was allowed under UK law; largely because they would either have the characters of Coronation Street on the cover and thus fully invoke this trope, or those of competing soaps which the producers would obviously not want to advertise however subtly on their show.

Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The men who own Underworld tend to have dark hair, frequently wear suits, and get romantically involved with Carla, before trying to kill her. This has happened so many times, it's practically become a Running Gag. Beth Tinker/Sutherland displays many of the same mannerisms as Cilla Battersby-Brown, albeit in an arguably more likeable character.

Sitting on the Roof
 Coronation Street / int_f8a4527f
comment
Sitting on the Roof: A recent (2014) storyline strands two characters on the roof for widely different reasons. Sally Webster's current bloke goes up to fix the TV aerial but is left stranded when Andrea's stalker-ex steals his ladders, so as to make a cry-for-help suicide bid from the roof of the Rovers. This lampshades British associations with the concept of roof-sitting: nobody ever goes up there for fun or relaxation. It's either necessary work, a suicide bid, or something criminal.

When Rosie Webster enlisted him to help bring sister Sophie and her partner Sian back to Weatherfield as they struggle with coming out and Sophie questions why Rosie brought Jason since he won't understand what they're going through, he replies with "Excuse me, I'm Mr Gay Weatherfield."

Talking Is a Free Action
 Coronation Street / int_ff5a74c8
comment
Talking Is a Free Action: Characters are very happy with trash-talking each other but there are times where they need to keep their mouth shut or gloat elsewhere. Tina McIntyre was a tragic example as she chose to die defiantly than be quiet so she has a better chance of survival. Other examples are Johnny Connor gloating about calling social services after Susie rolled off the sofawhy  it wasn't clarified until Eva figured out Liz told him and even Jenny points out the stupidity of his gloating. Shona Ramsey chooses to admit David's rape to his rapist Josh Tucker, giving him time to prepare an alibi, flee the street before being arrested as well as put her on his radar.
