It can only be a couple of years in classic corrie time that Nicky goes to Canada as comes back as Adam Rickett!

I don't know @CanYouSmellMyCharlie? Eastenders has always tackled more controversial storylines and they had far more characters that were not white British either, corrie seen to have gone the other way now ,they have loads,of openly gay characters .

Poor Mavis!

Yes, it was a disgrace really. Although little-known fact, a storyline was planned way back in the late 60s for the character of Jerry Booth in which he had a gay affair. It was scrapped - along with plans for the street’s first black family - for fear of ‘alienating’ viewers. Jerry ended up as a love interest for Mavis which seems like enough to turn anyone.

I wonder why it took Corrie so long to introduce an openly gay character?

Both Brookside and Eastenders did it in the 1980s, but it was 2003 before lovely Todd Grimshaw 'came out' as the first gay Corrie regular.

Given that the man who created Corrie was gay, and also many of the production team, it seems odd that it took so long hmm

Especially in Manchester, of all places! The most fabulous place to be gay in the world 😍!!

Nicky's a shit but his hair is coming along lovely, I am a sucker for curtains #stuckinthe90s

Yes because it you were going to have your first illicit fag as a teenager you would have it outside the pub where your parents and all your grandparents regularly go and is just across the road from your house 🙄

Nicky and his mate smoking 😂 and I’m sure there’s more staff than customers in Bettabuys

You're welcome, HTS.

Hope you can track down the earlier threads - they date back to October 2017, when ITV3 started airing the episodes.

HollysTeflonSeptum Wed 22-Jan-20 11:00:35

Thanks CanYou smile

I'll definitely have a look at the older threads too.

CanYouSmellMyCharlie Wed 22-Jan-20 10:21:11

Welcome, HollysTeflonSeptum! grin Glad you've found Classic Corrie.

I'm sorry you've only just discovered it.
You've missed some great years - every episode since about 1986 (we're in 1994 now) and it has changed quite a lot just in those eight years, in my opinion.

There are two other threads on here, before this one, that you will enjoy reading. They'll bring back lots of nice memories for you! smile

HollysTeflonSeptum Wed 22-Jan-20 09:32:31

Can I join you?

I caught these repeats by accident one morning and felt all fuzzy, reminds me of being really young (1994/1995?) and watching with my mum while she was alive. I stopped watching when she died as it wasn't the same.

I do .think he's an attractive .man though, apparently the actor who played him has a ranch in Texas or somewhere , might account for the odd hybrid accent ?

Housewife2010 Wed 22-Jan-20 08:42:43

I didn't notice her. Charlie does have a great physique.

StillCoughingandLaughing Tue 21-Jan-20 23:28:11

The actress who plays Eileen was in it last week playing a different part.

Charlie Whelan is like a joke of a character. He’d never fancy Bet. As for that hideous mid-Atlantic accent, it makes me want to fill his mouth with cement.

Housewife2010 Tue 21-Jan-20 21:52:10

Eileen wasn't in it until 2000.

MabelStark Tue 21-Jan-20 19:26:55

Awwww I really want Bet and Charlie to live happily ever after 🥺

SapatSea Sat 18-Jan-20 21:09:20

Eileen looks younger and slimmer now than back then!

x2boys Sat 18-Jan-20 20:50:40

Yeah we are In August 1994

RavenclawWriter Sat 18-Jan-20 20:25:47

Must be 1994, after March as Ivy has had her last appearance (with the lips)

TreesRUs Sat 18-Jan-20 17:06:20

What year do you think we’re at? 199....?

Housewife2010 Wed 15-Jan-20 12:25:52

Liverbird. I'm so pleased you agree with me. I thought everyone would think I was potty!
