In response to my blog post about Coronation Street's Top 10 villains, it was pointed out to me (and quite correctly too!) that I'd missed Tracy Barlow from the list.
Well, she deserves to be No. 1 on a list of her own. So here we go with my personal top 10 Corrie bad girls. Is there anyone you think should be added? Leave a comment below!
1. Tracy Barlow
Drugged Roy and slept with him to win a 1p bet. Drove Roy Cropper to the edge of suicide. Lied that Steve's baby was Roy's. Sold her baby daughter to the Croppers. Killed Charlie Stubbs. Ironed her own arms. Lied that Becky had pushed her down the stairs causing her to abort her twin babies. Set Victoria Court on fire, by accident, but, hey. And there's more, much more. It's probably easier to say what evil deeds Tracy hasn't done than those she has. Horrible inside and out and great fun to watch.
2. Tanya (evil cow) Pooley
3. Theresa Bryant
4. Jenny Bradley
5. Mad Maya
6. Jackie Dobbs
7. Kylie Platt
Murdered Callum Logan. Sold her baby Max to her sister Becky. Drug problems include becoming addicted to Max's medication.
8. Anne Malone
9. Megan Hopkins
'Granny' Megan Hopkins was a Welsh dragon with a bitter tongue but much more evil than the usual battleaxe. Blackmailed Gordon Clegg when she found out that his real mother was Betty Turpin.
10. Carmel Finnan
Unstable Irishwoman who lusted after Martin Platt (which is a crime in itself, surely?). Told people that David Platt was her son (ditto) and tried to snatch David. Got into bed with Martin when he came home drunk and she was babysitting Gail and Martin's kids. Lied that she was pregnant with Martin's baby.
Are there any more wild women of Weatherfield you would add to this list of bad girls?
