For largest number of appearances in the programme, see Top 100 appearances.

The following is a list of all Coronation Street characters who have been featured in the show for ten years or more as of Episode 10495 (29th November 2021). It only includes appearances within the main programme and not the spin-offs.

The list is sorted by default in the order of time between first and last appearances of a character in years and months. In some cases this is the same as the “longest continuous duration” column but many characters have left and been brought back years later, such as Dennis Tanner with a record 43-year absence. Some guest characters, who only made short-term appearances which would otherwise allow them to be included in this list are excluded.

The "Longest continuous duration" column lists characters for the longest consecutive time that they were in the programme, and excludes absences of less than six months.

The list only includes credited appearances, with the exception of Peter and Susan Barlow whose first five years on the programme as uncredited characters from 1965 to 1970 are included here however the “duration” column only includes their credited appearances.

Some characters have been played by more than one actor but the actor listed in each case is whoever played the character most recently.
