1. The Show Wasn’t Always Called Coronation Street

Okay, so we’ll start off easy with something that the super fans will know about, but Coronation Street was very nearly called “Florry” rather than “Corrie.” Yeah, in the original scripts, the show was known as Florizel Street before being turned into Coronation Street. What the super fans may not know is the fact that it was changed after someone involved in the production remarked they thought it sounded like the name of a disinfectant.

2. Does Everyone Call It Coronation Street?

One thing that many people might not know is that those who work on the show rarely refer to it as Corrie. Those who act in it refer to it almost exclusively as The Street. I wonder where this nickname came about? It’s nice the way these things become tradition.

3. The Creator Claims That Only A Gay Man Could’ve Created Coronation Street

Tony Warren originally created the first scripts for Florizel Street and believes that nobody apart from a gay man born at the time could’ve created what became Coronation Street. As a young effeminate man, confused about his own sexuality, he spent a lot of time watching men and women just to see what it was that made them tick.
