"He was that bow-legged he couldn't stop a pig in an entry." So said Roy's mum Sylvia last week. A great line alright, but it sounded vaguely familiar to me...
Ah yes, echoes of none other than Elsie Tanner from the very first episode of Coronation Street! I love it when Corrie makes reference to past glories. And I'd love more of the same.
That's why I keep watching Corrie. Every so often there is an unexpected gem or a wonderful nod to the past, and long may it continue!
Can you remember any other classic Corrie lines being recycled in the modern era?
