Last week, our Coronation Street Blog team met up in Manchester for a day out together. We had a wonderful time and I've done a write-up of the day here, if you'd like to read it.
When we were chatting all things Corrie, it was mentioned that Ken and Rita once had a fling - and some members of the blog team weren't aware of this. Many moons ago, our blogger Llifon wrote a blog post about Ken and Rita's night of passion - it's here.
It started me thinking how many other unlikely flings and one-night stands between characters we've forgotten about. So let's have a look back now at five unusual flings I can recall.
1. Ken and Rita
Ken was bored with his current girlfriend and stood her up to share a drink with Rita instead. And at the same time, Rita was on the rebound from Len. Rita cooked him a meal and they spent the night together in 1973! Oo-er!
2. Curly and Maxine
Curly Watts, the Street's geeky binman bedded Maxine, the Street's air-head/siren. Oh yes! It happened after Curly's wife Raquel left Curly to move to Kuala Lumpur. Wanting more from his own life, Curly decided to go travelling and let out his house to Samantha Failsworth. However, he spent a night of passion with Maxine Heavey. He didn't go travelling in the end, he changed his mind and came home.
3. Curly (again!) and Maureen

4. Dev and Tracy
5. Sally and Tyrone
Are there any more forgotten flings that stick in your mind?
