Current Cast Ranked

A personal ranking of all the current characters on Coronation Street. This list will exclude all characters under the age of 10 due to the characters having no identifiable personality traits.

  • 1: Rita Tanner: Rita Tanner/Littlewood/Fairclough/Sullivan is the ultimate Coronation Street character. She first appeared in 1964 after a one off appearance. She returned 8 years later and has been here since. Rita has a long history of failed relationships. Rita also has a history of fostering children, the likes of which include: Jenny Bradley and Sharon Gaskell. Rita spends most of her life either in The Kabin or in the Rovers Return. Here's to more years of the ultimate Corrie Character.

  • 2: Steve McDonald: "The most fertile man in Weatherfield", Steve Mcdonald is a iconic man who is one away from having more wife's than King Henry VIII. None of which have lasted more than 3 years. He looks like your average middle aged man. Fat and Bald. Oh and who could forgot those infamous Gurns. Never stop being you Steve.

  • 3: Roy Cropper: Who doesn't love Royston. His weird personality can be off putting but he cares about people and has taken many troubled people and under his wing and transformed them into better people. People who Roy has helped include, Becky McDonald, Carla Connor and Fiz Stape. Roy and his actor David Neilson became famous in the UK after marrying the first soap transgender, Hayley Patterson.

  • 4: Leanne Battersby: When Leanne and the rest of the Battersby family were introduced in 1997 they were met with controversy but in the end won over the viewers. Leanne was at the center of many storylines including a prostitution storyline, a abuse storyline from her adoptive son, Simon, and most recently a pregnancy storyline despite her thinking she could not have a child. She doesn't let anyone control her and does things her way.

  • 5: Audrey Roberts: Senior Platt is BEST PLATT! The Family may always in turmoil but when Audrey is around it seems so much less intense and she helps keep the family together. Originally Audrey turned up for family occasions but in the end became a recurring cast member which for the best.

  • 6: Todd Grimshaw: Todd may seem at odd choice for number six but here's why: When Todd returned in 2013 for some unknown reason he had become evil. He got worse when he was attacked and for some reason blamed Eileen. Even ruining her relationships. But when Pat returned to Weatherfield in 2016 Todd tried to tell Eileen that Pat was bad but Jason and Eileen didn't listen. Todd also started dating vicar Billy Mayhew. This relationship seemed to bring him back to the light side and since then he has been a better person.

  • 7:Sally Metcalfe: Sally is a iconic Corrie women. She is like many Strong Corrie ladies of the past. She dosent take crap from no one. She is a Councillor but she acts like she is Margaret Thatcher. That superiority that she thinks she has, is why I love her and hopes she never changes.

  • 8: Anna Windass: She is not afraid of anyone and stood up to Phelan when he returned despite what he had done to her. Once Liz has left Anna will be their to carry on the typecast of strong women.

  • 9: Craig Tinker: The kind hearted yougin' of the Tinker family. A hard upbringing didn't stop him from becoming a find young Gentlemen.

  • 10: Tim Metcalfe: With only 3 years on the show he has gone from the simple father of Faye to a comedy producing machine. Tim still has a heart of gold and his paring with Sally with a fantastic decision.

  • 11: Nick Tilsley: Nicky is a great character. That car crash was what saved him from being axed.
  • 12: David Platt: Good actor, love "Evil David" but really needs reduced screentime.

  • 19: Liz McDonald: Feisty old Liz is never afraid of anyone.
  • 20: Billy Mayhew: Great decision to pair him with Todd and superb actor.

  • 37: Jenny Bradley: Sally Ann Matthews is a amazing actress. Glad they bought her back, still isn't being used enough though.
  • 38: Gail Rodwell: Gail may have turned into a simpering old lady but when given a good script that dosent make her the village idiot, Helen Worth truly shines.
  • 39: Faye Windass: Young but has great talent. Her friendship with Craig is fantastic.
  • 40: Sharif Nazir: Yasmeen and Sharif are the perfect couple but Sharif can come off a bit dill compared to his wife.

  • 43: Cathy Matthews: Will never replace Hayley but still likeable.
  • 44: Bethany Platt: A Brat turned victim. Nothing else.

  • 57: Maria Connor: Silly girl, how does she trust Caz?

  • 60: Aadi Alahan: Who?, oh that boy.
  • 61: Alya Nazir: Boring and that rubbish pregnancy storyline ruined her.
  • 62: Sean Tully: Obnoxious to the max. I don't dislike Sean because he is gay. Other Gay characters are fantastic.
