How wonderful to see Emily back on form and in a storyline on Coronation Street. Let's take a moment to relive some of the protests that Emily's been involved in that she mentioned last night. Here she is with nephew Geoffrey (aka Spider) up a tree in protest to save the Red Rec.
But, as Emily pointed out last night, it's not the first time she's been involved in a bit of direct action. The future of Coronation Street was in the balance in 1974 and many of the residents opposed the council’s decision to demolish the place. Emily was so disgruntled when she heard that Alf Roberts and Len Fairclough knew about it and didn’t say anything. Emily threw a brick through Len’s window in protest. The street was eventually saved.
