Classic Corrie 5 - Deirdre’s out on bail, Leanne’s annoying Gail and Hayley was born male
997

StillCoughingandLaughing · 08/04/2021 22:47

New thread... really hope the title doesn’t offend anyone! I actually really admire how sensitively the story was handled!

Anyway... Corrie in 1998.

I was just wondering how come there had been no new story lines in the last twenty or so years :o

Does was so cold to Samantha who he'was so in love with a few days ago. Admittedly she's very dull and her back story never felt true, but he wasn't very nice.

I don't think she's that in love with him tbh ,she's just mixed up.

I’m a regular poster on the present day thread but I absolutely love Classic Corrie! puts the present day one to shame. A previous poster on the previous thread said how Leanne was talking about when she eloped with Nick, I think they are right in saying they are linking the two together as Toyah in present day Corrie was also telling Imran what a tearaway teenager she was, I wish they would bring some characters back, would love to see Curly rock up and is a shame Martin didn’t return for a longer stint.

Hayley’s red coat! Ahh, she and Roy were a brilliant couple. People rave about “iconic” Jack and Vera but although I like the actors I think their marriage is pretty toxic and he is so disrespectful. Roy and Hayley on the other hand....

I'm sure that Hayley was destined to be transgender right from the start.

The fact that she's never yet appeared without some sort of throat covering (scarf, polo-neck etc) indicates that she is very self-conscious about her Adam's Apple.

Many M to F trans women live with this problem every day of their lives.

I'm liking the storyline, and think that it's being done very well. I remember it the first time around, but didn't pay too much attention to it back then.

Thanks for the new thread.

What's happened to Angie, have I missed her leaving after the swap and moving in with Curly?

Glad we are getting a break from Sally and 'the gurls'.

Fiona is getting on my nerves, permanent miserable face.

Loving the 'young couple' Hayley and Roy. Hayley is so confident with Roy, whereas she was a bag of nerves in the shop with Alma.

I'm loving the Roy and Hayley story, but I'm such a softie that I got a bit teary thinking about what's to come Blush

I'm starting to remember more, but still amazed at all the fairly longterm people I have forgotten.
I need a where are they now series, explaining what everyone is doing in Australia, Aberdeen or wherever they went!

I wonder why Sam and Natalie had to call a taxi when Sam was moving out of Des's house?

Where was Natalie's BMW? How had she got to Coronation Street that day? 🤔🙄

Did they have separate nappies for Boys and girls in the 90,s ? My boys are 14 and 11 and nappies were unisex and I didn't have a lot to do with babies in the 90,s ?

I have 3 1990s babies and nappies were only unisex if they were really cheap. Pampers and peaudouce were the brands I used. Plus reusable.

I had assumed Fiona was carrying Emma - I don’t remember her having a boy..

I rarely watch new Corrie now but catch up on mumsnet hoping it will improve

Seeing Nick and Leanne it would be good if they got back together in Corrie now and were allowed to be a happy / successful couple. Plenty of scope for reminiscing with Gail, also allowing Helen Worth to return to ‘normal’

Other characters/actors I would like to return (even if they were killed off):
Maxine - Tracy Shaw could be very funny (eg her impression of Ashley calling her Maxime). I know she was killed but they swap heads of the living in and out so why not bring some of the good ones back in another guise?
Angie - not sure where she went but could be something in fashion linked to the factory.
Andy - he was a good actor and nice character - could return from Spain post Brexit and have a positive relationship with his brother..

It's such a shame ,I only watch modern Corrie now and again if I happen to catch it ,and it's so far removed from what it was ,all the doom and gloom,over the top ridiculous storylines ,they have completely ruined it ,Hayley and Roy worked because they were so right for each other and they were a lovely couple ,if they did a Transexual storyline now ,it would just be OTT and stereotypical.

Samantha is awful. Begging Des to take her back then shagging Chris within days! I'd forgotten how dreadful she was.

I did have to laugh at Nick asking Leanne if she knew what her mother looked like. I half-expected her to say, ‘You know Cindy Beale off EastEnders...?’
