Two stunts and ITV60 live episode
As in previous years, major storylines peaked in mid January and late May, with the latter airing as post-watershed episodes between the finals of ITV's Britain's Got Talent. Both of these involved stunt sequences. The first was a nighttime minibus crash on a country road, threatening the lives of the factory staff. No characters were killed but Sinead Tinker was temporarily paralysed.
The May storyline was a fire at the Victoria Court flats, started accidentally by Tracy Barlow. Tracy had gone there intending to harm Carla Connor but didn't go through with it. In the ensuing blaze, most of the complex's inhabitants including Amy Barlow were rescued, but Kal Nazir, the last to leave, was killed when a gas cannister exploded. Jimi Mistry had decided to leave after 18 months with the show, having never intended to stay for long . The remaining Nazirs were kept on in the programme.
The fire had another casualty in Maddie Heath when the character crossed the police tape to get to Sophie Webster and was blown away by a secondary explosion from the builder's yard. Amy James-Kelly had joined at the same time as Jimi Mistry, and left to gain more acting experience outside of Coronation Street . The Victoria Court complex itself withstood the fire and continued in the programme.
Coronation Street's third special live episode was broadcast on 23rd September to mark the 60th anniversary of the ITV network, the first time one had been made for an occasion other than the anniversary of the serial itself. The episode was announced by ITV's Director of Television, Peter Fincham, on 19th November 2014 at the Salford Media Festival and was broadcast live after two weeks of rehearsals. The episode involved a complicated fight scene and a sequence shot on location involving pyrotechnics, which was also done live with actors Bruno Langley and Terence Maynard having only nine minutes to get to the site in Trafford Park Road after taking part in a previous scene at MediaCity studios.
In the episode, Callum Logan's reign of terror against the Platts came to an end when the gangster was clubbed to death by Kylie as he had pinned Sarah down on the kitchen floor. Sean Ward, who played Callum, had to return especially for the live episode as the preceding instalments had been recorded some eight weeks earlier. Callum's body was buried by Kylie and David Platt in the Platts' garage which was being converted into a bedroom for Gail, dubbed the "grannex", remaining there until the next post-watershed week in May 2016.
Craig Charles and Hayley Tamaddon also shot their last scenes as Lloyd Mullaney and Andrea Beckett in the live episode, as their exit in a later episode was already in the can. Charles had quit Coronation Street after ten years to revive sitcom Red Dwarf for the TV channel Dave . Charles had previously fitted his Red Dwarf filming commitments around Coronation Street, but this time he had no plans to return. Lloyd's girlfriend Andrea Beckett was written out with him as the couple moved to Jersey, overriding Hayley Tamaddon's own wishes . The reason for Lloyd and Andrea's appearance after their send-off in the live episode was that Simon Gregson was scheduled to begin a period of absence just before the live recording and writers wanted a goodbye scene between Lloyd and Steve McDonald, which was added to Episode 8742. Steve was absent from the programme from November until April 2016.
Two days after the live broadcast, ITV announced that Stuart Blackburn would be departing as producer in 2016 and that his successor would be Kate Oates, a former assistant producer on Coronation Street now running Emmerdale . This continued a pattern of Emmerdale producers transferring to Coronation Street, which began with Blackburn and continued in 2018 with Iain MacLeod.
Veteran cast member Anne Kirkbride became critically ill after suffering a stroke on 18th January. Her character Deirdre Barlow had last appeared on-screen in October 2014 as Kirkbride had taken a leave of absence after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The much-loved actress passed away a day later on 19th January, aged 60 .
Deirdre had already been written out temporarily, when she left to stay with Bev Unwin in the Peak District. After an appropriate amount of time had passed, the character was killed off via an aneurysm without ever returning to Weatherfield. Susie Blake reprised the role of Bev after nine years to deliver the sad news to the Barlows, while Chris Gascoyne made a short return as Peter having left the cast the year before. A third returnee was Robert Preston, Tracy Barlow's ex-husband who came to pay his respects and ultimately reconciled with Tracy. Recast with Tristan Gemmill in the part, this was the first time Robert had been a regular fixture in the show.
Cast signings in 2015 were largely built around shoring up Coronation Street's core families, either with new or returning characters. Sarah and Bethany Platt were back from Milan after a seven-year absence, which along with Gail marrying Michael Rodwell and the ongoing Callum Logan storyline made the year heavily Platt-centric. Tina O'Brien remained in the role of Sarah, while Lucy Fallon was cast as 14-year-old Bethany. A minor controversy occurred when the original choice of actress, Katie Redford, was fired after bosses learned that she had lied about her age in order to get the part .
Sally Ann Matthews returned as Jenny Bradley in February, having last played the part in 1993. The gap was a record for a Coronation Street actress in the same role at the time. This was a short comeback, lasting four months, for a storyline involving Kevin Webster and a tragedy in Jenny's past, later revealed to be the accidental drowning of her four-year-old son Tom. Jenny's return was received positively, though the programme was criticised over a line of dialogue by Kevin in Episode 8658 where the mechanic appeared to forget his late son Jake. The continuity error sparked so many comments online that Stuart Blackburn issued a statement apologising for the mistake .
The depleted Connors became a central family again with the creation of Aidan and Kate Connor - distant cousins of Michelle - and their father Johnny. Aidan appeared first when he used Johnny's money to buy 40% of a flagging Underworld, his sister and father following on two months later. The new Connors were created in anticipation of Alison King's sabbatical from the programme in 2016, which would leave the factory without a manager . Aidan was played by former X Factor winner Shayne Ward, who had since moved into acting. Richard Hawley and Faye Brookes were cast as Johnny and Kate respectively, while Rhea Bailey played Kate's fiancée Caz Hammond. By the year's end, Johnny had been revealed as Carla's father by a returning Rob Donovan, as the murderer took revenge on Carla and Tracy from prison.
While some families were given a boost, another was whittled down. Katy Armstrong moved to Portugal with Joseph in March, almost a year after the announcement that the character was being written out against actress Georgia May Foote's wishes . Although a reason for Katy's axing wasn't given, Marc Anwar, who played Sharif Nazir, stated in 2018 that Foote was fired for refusing to do a storyline where Katy converted to Islam, a story which the actress strenuously denied . Owen Armstrong left the Street a month after his daughter at the choice of actor Ian Puleston-Davies, who had been with the programme for five years. Izzy Armstrong and son Jake remained, but appeared less.
Cast and production roundup
Katy Cavanagh quit after seven years as Julie Carp in order to pursue other projects . Her July exit involved the return of Brian Packham as Julie joined her ex-boyfriend on a round-the-world trip. The same reason was given for Terence Maynard's decision to depart the programme in November .
Newcomers included Cathy Matthews, a compulsive hoarder who was introduced as a possible love interest for Roy Cropper - though Roy ultimately chose not to marry her. Cathy's nephew Alex Warner also became a regular when he gained employment at Roy's Rolls. Alex was played by Liam Bairstow, who was born with Down Syndrome and was discovered when the producers of Coronation Street ran a workshop for actors with disabilities named "Breaking Through".
Paula Lane and Jennie McAlpine returned from maternity leave in the spring, while Samia Ghadie began hers in the summer with Maria Connor going to Cyprus to look after her mother Dot. During the latter two absences, Fiz Stape and Maria Connor's children Hope Stape and Liam Connor were also off-screen, as was Ruby Dobbs. Catherine Tyldesley was another maternity leaver, resulting in Eva Price being absent from February to September. Meanwhile, Dolly-Rose Campbell made further guest appearances as Gemma Winter ahead of her regular role in 2016, and lastly Dev Alahan was absent between February and June as actor Jimmi Harkishin was on extended leave.
In a reference to real-life events, the cigarette displays in The Kabin and Corner Shop were shown being put behind screens in line with a change in the law, specifically The Health Act 2009, which came into effect for small retailers on 6th April, the date Episode 8611 was broadcast.
In terms of spin-off material, the shorts released online as part of the What Would Kirk Do? mini-series concluded in January when Kirk and Beth Sutherland's wedding took place within the main show. A further short was produced for ITV's annual Text Santa fundraising evening. Inspired by the Back to the Future film trilogy, the 13-minute episode was a sketch in which Tyrone Dobbs and Kirk Sutherland travel through Coronation Street history in a DeLorean time machine in an effort to get back to Tyrone's in time for dinner. Sir Richard Branson guest-starred as the car's owner while Sally Dynevor, Joe Duttine, Debbie Rush and Les Dennis played Annie Walker, Albert Tatlock, Elsie Tanner and Mavis Wilton in scenes set in the street's past. No further spin-offs of this nature have been produced to date.
From the low point of 2014, ratings took another hit, falling 700k to an average of 6.58 million viewers. This is Coronation Streets worst-performing year to date, partly because ITV began amalgamating its main channel figures with those of ITV+1 and ITV HD in May 2016.
For the second year in a row, every month fell compared with the previous year, with the biggest drops taking place in the winter and autumn months. Episode 8557 on 19th January, featuring the minibus crash, was the most-watched episode of the year with 8.24 million viewers. 19th January was also the date of Anne Kirkbride's death. Three weeks later, the programme attracted its lowest audience ever with Episode 8581, watched by 5.17 million viewers. This was broadcast opposite EastEnders: Backstage Live on BBC One, a special programme following the transmission of the soap's thirtieth anniversary live episode. Coronation Street's live episode in September garnered an audience of 7.48 million viewers.
Meanwhile, the programme's chart performance reached its lowest level in decades as no episodes reached top position, the first time this had occurred since 1988.
