Our Night At The British Soap Awards 2023
For the first time in four years, the British Soap Awards are back in Manchester! We travelled up to see the Corrie cast arrive at the Lowry before heading inside to watch the ceremony being filmed. This episode has everything you need to know about what it's like to attend the show, and for tonnes of photos and footage of the event, check out the video version of the podcast on our YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/nZFdmgk80Eo!
Conversation Street Episode 578
On our latest podcast, we chat about what went on in Weatherfield between the 29th May and the 2nd June 2023 (Episodes #10966 - 10970)
Britain's Got Talent week is here again, and you know what that means for Corrie: stunts galore, massive twists and long-running stories reaching their climax... except that didn't really happen this year. We've seen a wide range of opinions on this year's 'big week', and although we sit somewhere in the middle, we must admit that it didn't quite live up to our hopes for the week. Yes, Gemma's wedding was lovely and the dress was absolutely perfect for her; yes, the performances from the various actors reacting to Paul's news were all spot on; and yes, the courtroom drama ramped up nicely on Friday. But we still can't feel like things could have been bigger, especially when it came to the acid attack story, which felt it took a little too long to get going - plus the less said about that kiss at the end of the week the better! Come on Daisy - it took us a long time to warm up to you as a character... please don't spoil it!
This episode was recorded from our AirBnB in Sale as we're up north again for the British Soap Awards this weekend. After a long day's drive (and no time for dinner before recording!), we didn't have the energy for news and feedback for this week, so it's a Street Talk only episode this time. Look out for our reactions from the awards over the coming days, though!
This week's bonus podcast is another Listener Question segment! First up, we ponder who on Corrie is being underused at the moment, and with a huge cast of characters to choose from, there are bound to be a few that get short changed. Are they ones we really mind not seeing much of, though? After that, we're asked about product placement on Corrie, which has been a thing ever since Dev introduced those Nationwide ATMs into the Corner Shop over a decade ago. What do we think of it, and which brands would we suggest Corrie should work with if it was looking for a new partner?
Conversation Street Episode 577
On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 22nd and the 26th May 2023 (Episodes #10960 - 10965).
This week's podcast really was a case of finding some light in the darkness because by 'eck, wasn't that a grim set of episodes? Not that the scripts or performances were poor or anything, but it just seemed like there wasn't a lot of happiness for anyone! Top of the misery list, of course, was Paul, whose worsening condition causes him to be a bit of a party pooper at the stag and hen do on Wednesday. We just hope that Gemma and Chesney can have a happy wedding next week before the news of Paul's MND spreads further... Also this week, Craig and Tim were left teary eyed when Faye made the decision to do a classic Corrie flit and move to Slough with Miley and Jackson. Meanwhile, Roy suffers angina attacks, Hope's dumped by Sam after she sabotages Eliza's birthday party and Daisy is getting anxious about next week's big court case.
In The Kabin, we take a look at the nominations in this year's NTAs, report a lengthy delay in the publication of Maggie Sullivan's next Coronation Street novel and uncover some evidence online that a head swap may soon be on the cards for one of the Corrie kids! We round things off with a little bit of feedback.

Faye Windass Character Profile Revisit
Back in Episode #101 of the podcast, we ran a character profile of a young Faye Windass and her first few years on the Street. For this week's bonus show, as Faye leaves Weatherfield, sloping off to Slough with Jackson and Miley, we take a look at what she's been up to in the nine years since. A teenage pregnancy, a prison sentence, early menopause, and of course being caught up as a minor character in the villainous tales of Pat Phelan and Geoff Metcalfe... it's been an eventful decade for Faye, and one that has given us plenty to chat about as we say a one final goodbye to her.
