Corriepedia is a wonderful site. If you haven't visited it, please do.
Every day on Twitter the guys who run Corriepedia look back at a handful of storylines which took place on this day in a different year of Coronation Street's history.
And so each Sunday from today onwards, I'm going to be taking a look at my personal favourite five storylines from those which Corriepedia have alerted us to during the week.
I hope you enjoy these short and sweet looks down memory lane.
