Coronation Street

Trivia: Before launching a music career with 'The Monkees', Davy Jones starred in Coronation Street as Ena Sharples' grandson.

Trivia: The original working title was to be "Florizel Street," but this was dropped as it sounded too much like a disinfectant, according to the then producers.

Trivia: The famous scene that caused controversy, where Ken grabs Deirdre by the neck after finding out about her and Mike, wasn't in the script, it was an improvisation. William Roache, who plays Ken, thought that Ken's reaction was a bit unrealistic. The director told him to do what he thought Ken's reaction would be, and therefore Ken grabbed Deirdre's throat and slammed her against a wall.

Trivia: In the episode where Maria gets back together with Nick and Candica slaps her, the slap was real, they did it three times to make it look real.

Trivia: The show was originally planned to be a 16 part drama.
