In September of that year it reached the top of the television ratings, where it stayed for the rest of the year. Despite the passage of fifty years, together with changing characters, competition from other soaps and the evolution of the genre as well similar real-world communities, which the series has sometimes struggled to reflect, Coronation Street has remained popular and still frequently tops the ratings.
The fictional setting of the soap is Coronation Street in Weatherfield , a suburb of Greater Manchester. Within the narrative of the programme, the cobbled Street was built in and consists of a row of seven terraced houses, with the Rovers Return Inn pub and Corner Shop at either end. Across the cobbles, the other side of the Street has housed a number of different buildings over the years, including a raincoat factory , Mission hall , warehouse , Community Centre and a block of two-storey maisonettes.
Since , three semi-detached houses and several small business properties, including newsagent The Kabin , Audrey's Salon, Websters' Auto Centre and underwear factory Underworld , have stood on the site.
As the programme's various outdoor sets have expanded, the area surrounding Coronation Street, particularly Rosamund Street and Victoria Street , have been gradually integrated into the show, with more flats and business properties including Roy's Rolls , cab firm Street Cars , Barlow's Bookies and the Builder's Yard. The houses and businesses provide accommodation and work for the programme's characters, with the action mostly centring on the Coronation Street area, although other areas of Weatherfield are seen occasionally.
When created by Tony Warren in , the Coronation Street community was noted for being largely matriarchal, reflecting Warren's observations about its real-world counterparts in Manchester.

Giles is a potential purchaser for Roy's Rolls and its flat when Roy Cropper David Neilson put the premises up for sale, following the cancellation of his wedding to Cathy Matthews Melanie Hill.
Sally tells Roy that Giles will turn the cafe into an amusement arcade and that he was transphobic, two things Roy hates, in the hope that he will cancel the sale. While the two were distracted, Shona stole her purse from her open handbag and did a runner.
When Billy eventually tracked Shona down, she described the worker as a jobsworth, saying she could spot the nice ones a mile off and she definitely didn't fit the bill.
The Barman worked in premises that was frequently visited by homeless thief Shona Ramsey Julia Goulding who Billy Mayhew Daniel Brocklebank was trying to take under his wing. Billy visited the bar to find her and was told by the barman that although it was his first shift there he had been warned about her and asked Billy to tell him if she came in so that he could evict her. Billy loosely promised to do so and ordered a pint from the man while he waited.
Shanice Stewart Jones . Peggy is a friend of Steph Britton 's Tisha Merry , who visits her to talk about her break up with her boyfriend. Robert Preston Tristan Gemmill snaps at Steph for sitting around and talking. Peggy, oblivious to his manner, is taken with his looks and asks Steph if he is single. Steph initially is not keen on the thought of her friend dating her boss, but she changes her mind and persuades the two to go on a date together.
Robert is reluctant, but he goes along with the idea nevertheless. The Midwife attends to Michelle Connor Kym Marsh when she is taken to Weatherfield General after suffering pains in her abdomen during her pregnancy.
She then assists another midwife at the birth of the stillborn boy, who Michelle and her husband Steve McDonald Simon Gregson named Ruairi. Michelle is placed in a bereavement suite to recover from the birth and death. When Michelle is informed that no birth or death certificate will be issued, she takes her temper out on the midwife, snapping at her when she is told how she understood what she is going through, only for her to reply that she herself has suffered a still birth in the past.
Michelle is allowed time to be with the baby before he is taken to the chapel of rest by the midwife, who gives her a leaflet offering information and support, something that gave her some comfort.
The Doctor attends to a pregnant Michelle Connor Kym Marsh , and advises that she is kept in overnight for observation. When Michelle's waters break, the doctor tells her and her husband Steve McDonald Simon Gregson that the labour cannot be stopped, even though the baby is underdeveloped.
The doctor assists at the birth, where baby Ruairi is born lifeless. The next day, the doctor explains that birth and death certificates will not be issued, as the baby was born too early.
She offers to talk to Michelle, but Steve chooses to tell her himself. The Bailiff and his colleagues execute a warrant against the debts of Sharif Nazir Marc Anwar by repossessing items from V Court Fitness of which he was part owner. Another of the owners, Dev Alahan Jimmi Harkishin protests, but is unable to stop them. Sharif's grandson Zeedan Qasim Akhtar tried to stop proceedings by himself taking a sewing machine that his sister, Alya Sair Khan , had bought with money she had taken from her grandfather, but she refuses to part with the item.
The repossession effectively puts the gym out of business. The Fire Investigator carries out an inspection of the bodyshop of Webster's Autocentre after it is burnt down.
He quickly finds the keys to the premises on the floor. He later breaks the news to Kevin Webster Michael Le Vell and Tyrone Dobbs Alan Halsall that he is handing the matter over to the police, as he is sure that it is a case of arson. Nancy Briers is a waitress at Nick's Bistro. She previously went out on a date with Luke Britton Dean Fagan , who said that he "might" text her later. However, he later tells her that he is going out with Tracy Barlow Kate Ford. Nancy, who has feelings for Luke, tries her best to woo him, especially when he walks out of the bistro on Tracy's birthday when she confesses to him that she murdered her boyfriend Charlie Stubbs Bill Ward.
Nancy teases Tracy over her split with Luke until Luke returns to the bistro, and tells Tracy that because of her honesty, he's now madly in love with her. Nancy, enraged, makes insulting remarks at Tracy and Luke, which results in Tracy lashing out at her.
Nancy's boss, Robert Preston Tristan Gemmill , walks in seeing the two fighting, and immediately fires Nancy. Leanne is her first appointment and she notices the advanced state of her pregnancy.
Shanice tells Leanne that they had better get on with the massage before the baby arrives. She adds that being a mother is the best thing Leanne will ever do. Credited as "Massage Therapist", the character's name Shanice was given in dialogue. Emma is a cancer survivor who knew Sally Metcalfe Sally Dynevor from a group at the clinic she attended.
Sally had been given another "all-clear" as part of her annual check after having had breast cancer and mentioned to Jenny Bradley Sally Ann Matthews that it was difficult getting good mastectomy bras. Jenny designed and made a prototype of a garment that would have function while not forgoing style and Sally organised for Emma to visit the factory and see the item.

Jemima is the assistant to Richard Drake Colin R. Telling them that they have a warrant to search the premises, they begin to look around the house and they find a bag of white powder. The officers assume it is cocaine.
The two girls are arrested and taken to Weatherfield Police Station, where they are separately questioned. Rosie tells the officer that she came home, as she is spontaneous in nature and her boyfriend Antoine had paid for it.
She strenuously denies taking any illegal drugs and when the powder is proved to be tea sweetener, the girls are released. Rosie and Sophie go to the estate and find Greg's house is boarded up.
The neighbour tells them that he was arrested the previous day on suspicion of drug possession.
