The faces of Corrie in 1979

(This post was originally posted by Llifon on the Coronation Street Blog in February 2013.)

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 1979, 83 episodes were broadcast.

1. Len Fairclough (59 episodes)
2. Ivy Tilsley (58 episodes)
3. Gail Potter/Tilsley (58 episodes)
4. Elsie Tanner (57 episodes)
5. Suzie Birchall (55 episodes)
6. Hilda Ogden (55 episodes)
7. Rita Fairclough (54 episodes)
8. Deirdre Langton (50 episodes)
9. Betty Turpin (50 episodes)
10. Ken Barlow (49 episodes)
11. Stan Ogden (49 episodes)
12. Brian Tilsley (49 episodes)

Due to lack of space, Annie Walker fails to make the top 12 but also appeared in 49 episodes

Average age: 42

Note: This is the last time Stan appears in the top 12 and the only time Suzie (to date) and Brian appear. This is also the first time that a Rovers licensee doesn’t appear in the top 12
