On the Eleventh Day of Corrie Christmas, my true love gave to me...
... Eleven Days of Marriage
You may remember dear Fred Elliot the butcher (and father of Ashley Peacock). Fred was, as the saying goes, unlucky in cards and unlucky in love. A case in point: Fred and his new bride (Maureen Elliott) get marrried. It is a triumph of love. Fred has finally convinced an eligible woman to be his wife... until maureen promptly does a runner with Bill Webster (Kevin's Dad) and they run away to Germany (achtung baby!). The marriage to poor Fred lasted only eleven days.
