My, what an evening of surprises and celebration. That concludes this year's Golden Hotpots. Hope you enjoyed it. Of course it's impossible to recognize all the great characters and stories over 12 months of Corrie so forgive me if I have overlooked anyone or anything and feel free to let me know. I'll be heading down to the Big Smoke (Toronto) for a few days but I'll be back next week with more of the Hip. Until then, have a wonderful, safe and happy holiday, a Merry Christmas and hopefully some well-deserved skiving. Cheers and thanks so much for stopping by this year. CH
