Our blogger Llifon has done a fantastic job over the last few months in researching and presenting the 12 most used characters on Coronation Street, year by year, from 1960 to date.
You can read all about them here.
In each of the years profiled by Llifon, he worked out the average age of the top 12 most used characters each year.
In the graph above, we've plotted those average ages, year by year, so you can see how this has changed over the years and decades.
The years are across the bottom of the graph and the ages are up the left hand side.
Yes, it's real Corrie anorak fan stuff - and I love it! I can't thank Llifon enough for all his work.
