Storylines of Coronation Street
Storylines of Coronation Street, the British ITV soap opera, have spanned more than five decades, from the programme's inception in December 1960, until the present day. Coronation Street has covered a number of storylines that created dispute and debate in the media and caused public outcry from viewers. Popular storylines have also seen an increase in the number of viewers, such Deirdre Rachid being jailed in 1998 and the reign of Pat Phelan from 2016–2018, as well as large media coverage; notably the sacking of Peter Adamson in 1983. Some storylines are seen as having caused controversy amongst viewers and in the media due to the sudden sacking of an actor by the programme's producer, or as a result of a topic or theme that openly shocked viewers or was seen as taboo.
