5 Forgotten Flings on Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog May 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

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 
For a geeky lad with glasses, Curly Watts got his fair share of female attention.  He bedded both Maxine and Maureen around Christmas 1996 which has been lovingly documented by our Blogger Clinkers to Riddle here.

4. Dev and Tracy 
Dev had aleady bedded Deirdre when daughter Tracy thought she'd like a ride on the Devster too.  It was Christmas Day 2002 when Tracy returned suddenly from London and announced to the family she had left Robert.

5. Sally and Tyrone

Yes, Sally "the People's Princess" Metcalfe once had a fling with Kev's garage grease monkey Tyrone.  After throwing out her cheating hubby Kevin, Sally also kicked out teenage lovers Sophie and Sian when she found them in bed together. Feeling like her life is falling apart, she turns to Tyrone, who’s grieving for his wife Molly, and invites him over for tea, and a snog.

Are there any more forgotten flings that stick in your mind?
