The official Coronation Street website at itv.com/corrie has had a make-over and the new version is now live. Have a look at it and see what you think.
There are new character pages, and for the first time ever, you can view all of the official, exclusive content from your tablets and mobiles - But the video content won't work for us overseas fans. Even so, there's lots of other information though, of course, if you don't like spoilers, tread carefully.
Anyway, speaking of the official website and this'll tell you how old I am - I can remember the very first version of the official Coronation Street website which appeared sone time after I first got online with a modem and a piece of string back in 1993. The website back then was run by Granada Media Group or something similar and it used to draw the whole Street line by line every time you logged on to it. It looked lovely, but it took forever.
Since then, the official site has changed, grown and changed some more. I've even had the privilege of working on the official site a few years ago at ITV and as a freelancer too.
And today, in preparation for the new Corrie set to be unveiled to the press tomorrow, the website takes on another new look.
