The faces of Corrie in 1960

(This post was originally posted by Llifon on the Coronation Street Blog in January 2014, reposted with permission.)

If you remember, last year I had a series of posts looking at the top 12 faces of each Corrie decade - the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s and the 2000s. For the next 10 weeks or so, I’ll be looking at the top 12 faces of each year between 1960 and 2013.

With thanks to Corriepedia for the information.

In 1960, 7 episodes were broadcast.

1.    Linda Cheveski (7 episodes)
2.    Ena Sharples (7 episodes)
3.    Elsie Tanner (7 episodes)
4.    Annie Walker (7 episodes)
5.    Christine Hardman (6 episodes)
6.    Esther Hayes (6 episodes)
7.    Martha Longhurst (6 episodes)
8.    Dennis Tanner (6 episodes)
9.    Ivan Cheveski (5 episodes)
10.    Harry Hewitt (5 episodes)
11.    Jack Walker (5 episodes)
12.    Minnie Caldwell (4 episodes)

Due to lack of space, Leonard Swindley fails to make the top 12, but he also appeared for 4 episodes.

Average age: 41

Note: This is the only time Linda, Ivan (to date), Christine and Esther appear in the top 12.
