Coronation Street has been on ITV for over 60 years and it certainly continues to go strong.

The bosses also don’t seem to have run out of ideas or plots, as there’s everything going on at the moment – from killer secrets, grieving deaths and big decisions.

While many of the characters on the soap have been around for a long time, some of the newer Corrie residents are as beloved as the classics.

The same can be said of 10 years ago on the show, back in 2012, with April featuring some great moments, shocking scandal and the death of a dear resident.

Betty Williams, played by beloved actress Betty Driver, was in the series since 1969 before she left in 2011.

Famous for her hot spots in The Rovers, the beloved maid was a key figure of the show for decades, until she was written off in 2011 – when actress Betty passed away in May. Those 10 years, at the age of 91.

In April 2012, her son, Gordon, returned to the cobblestones and informed the residents that Betty had sadly passed away in her sleep, with it the end of an era.

In another development this month, pub owner Stella Price was devastated to learn that her husband, Karl, was heavily in debt, and had stolen money from the pub due to his gambling addiction.

She eventually kicked him out, distraught, but he quickly fell into Sunita Alahan’s arms, and the two fell asleep together.

Despite regretting their actions, the couple continued to have a scandal – in 2013, which would result in Sunita being killed at the hands of Karl.

Elsewhere, David Platt and his partner Kylie, who would be tragically murdered in 2016, got into a fight with his wife Audrey Roberts.

After she contracted the salon for her nephew, she was unhappy with what had happened so she asked him to return it to her – but he refused.

Of course David is trying to protect her from Lewis, who he believes is after her money – which sadly is later proven to be true.

In a fit of anxiety, Audrey went on to have a heart attack and was taken to the hospital, where she refused to see David with him due to fear of her health.

One of the key storylines of this era is the pitiful abuse Tyrone Dobbs suffered at the hands of his wife Kirsty Soames.

Kirsty would rampage and stretch out at Tyrone, attacking him verbally and physically multiple times, while he doesn’t speak up about it.

The officer would apologize later and silence Tyrone and stay with her.

Meanwhile, Terry Duckworth has returned to the scene and leads his son, Tommy, astray – with Tommy’s girlfriend Tina, highly suspicious of his behavior.
