The faces of Corrie for 1978

(This post was originally posted by Llifon on the Coronation Street Blog in February 2013.)

If you remember, last year I had a series of posts looking at the top 12 faces of each Corrie decade - the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s and the 2000s. For the next 10 weeks or so, I’ll be looking at the top 12 faces of each year between 1960 and 2013.

With thanks to Corriepedia for the information.

In 1978, 103 episodes were broadcast.

1. Len Fairclough (72 episodes)
2. Bet Lynch (69 episodes)
3. Ken Barlow (67 episodes)
4. Hilda Ogden (67 episodes)
5. Elsie Howard/Tanner (63 episodes)
6. Annie Walker (63 episodes)
7. Mike Baldwin (62 episodes)
8. Betty Turpin (61 episodes)
9. Rita Fairclough (60 episodes)
10. Deirdre Langton (59 episodes)
11. Emily Bishop (59 episodes)
12. Steve Fisher (59 episodes)

Due to lack of space, Gail Potter fails to make the top 12 but also appeared in 59 episodes

Average age: 45

Note: To date, this is the only time Steve appears in the top 12
