On the Twelfth Day of Corrie Christmas

On the Twelfth Day of Corrie Christmas, my true love gave to me...

...12 Original Episodes

According to the website, Coronation Street was initially commissioned for only 12 episodes. As many of you know, the first episode of Coronation Street was broadcast in 1960. The show struck a chord with viewers and has been running ever since. According to, "since 9th December 1960, up to and including the episode transmitted on 12th December 2012, there have been 8015 episodes of Coronation Street..."

Phew! So there you have the 12 Days of Corrie Christmas. 


  1. Brilliantly done! Thanks for the laughs throughout the year. Your blog is always an added bonus to the show.

  2. Hi Mary and thanks for the comment. I have a feeling that there will be lots of material on the show to comment on in 2013. Cheers, Corrie
