The Faces of Corrie in 1997

(This post was originally posted by Llifon on the Coronation Street Blog in March 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 1997, 209 episodes were broadcast.

1. Kevin Webster (140 episodes)
2. Judy Mallett (122 episodes)
3. Sally Webster (121 episodes)
4. Jim McDonald (120 episodes)
5. Vera Duckworth (119 episodes)
6. Chris Collins (116 episodes)
7. Alec Gilroy (116 episodes)
8. Gary Mallett (116 episodes)
9. Rita Sullivan (116 episodes) 
10. Fiona Middleton (114 episodes)
11. Deirdre Rachid (112 episodes)
12. Samantha Failsworth (111 episodes)

Average age: 38 – this is the first time the average age of the top 12 is under 40. The average age drops from 51 to 38 in a year 

Note: To date, this is the last time Deirdre and Fiona appear in the top 12. And this is the only time Judy, Chris, Gary and Samantha appear in the top 12.
