What do you call Coronation Street - Corrie or Coro?

Ooh,  now, here's a thing  It could be controversial or it could have you banging your head off your laptop with boredom.

I've just read on twitter from @maddiniles97 who writes: "Get so angry when people call coronation street 'corrie' IT'S CORO!!!"

I always used to call it Corra until th'internet access came my way back in 1993 and the two first words I ever typed into th'internet then were "Coronation Street".  Once I got online and found fellow fans in the ether, I changed what I called our favourite soap from Corra to Corrie, such is the power of the web.

And it seems in New Zealand it's more popularly called Coro than Corrie.

So - what do you call it in your house, Coronation Street fans? Corrie or Coro? Or do you call it something else like The Street perhaps?

Corrie - but I do remember calling it The Street at one time - before the internet
