Who are the current Coronation Street icons?

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

After blogging about Liz McDonald's wardrobe, I thought to myself that Liz now ranks as a Coronation Street icon, to me anyway. This started me thinking about which other current characters I would name as belonging to that holiest of positions - the Corrie icon.

Here's my list to start with, I'd love to hear who you would choose for your own Corrie icon list.

The dictionary definition of icon I'm choosing here is a person or thing that is revered or idolized. Using that definition, my own list of current Corrie icons are:

Liz McDonald

Carla Connor

Sally Webster
Roy Cropper
Tracy Barlow

I'd also like to add Deirdre Barlow in my list of current Corrie icons too.

However, there are others which I admire greatly and would put under the title of the Corrie legend.

I'm using the dictionary definition of legend to mean a collection of stories about an admirable person and a person who is the center of such stories.

I'd therefore put in my list of legends, the following:

Rita Tanner


Ken Barlow 

Emily Bishop
Gail Rodwell

A special mention goes to Fiz Stape, who I feel could very well fill the Corrie classic Battleaxe role, in due course.
