Deborah tells us how she got hooked on Corrie…
In 1995, Al and I were going to England. Al had never been before so 3 weeks before going, we decided to watch Coronation Street so Al could see what England was like. Not long after we arrived, my uncle asked what we would like to do while we were over. Al jokingly said, Go to Coronation Street! The next day we were at the Granada studios. Al's first pint in the UK was at the Rover's Return. It is quite something to say you have walked on those cobbles. After that trip, we never missed a show.
In Sept 2003, we were back in England. This time the Granada tours were closed. It is too bad as we would have appreciated the tour so much more. We did go to Manchester though and spent 7 hours at the studio gates. We met 9 stars that day-Audrey, Sunita, Mike, Ashley, Tyrone, Jason, Ken, Norris and Kevin. I had my photo taken with them all and had them sign my Corrie tshirt. It was a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!
