Sixty years after the first episode of soap opera Coronation Street was broadcast, Royal Mail have issued eight stamps and a miniature sheet, celebrating some of the TV show's most memorable characters.

The eight stamps showcase some of Coronation Street’s most loved duos over the years:

  • Ena Sharples and Elsie Tanner
  • Stan and Hilda Ogden
  • Vera and Jack Duckworth
  • Deirdre and Ken Barlow
  • Rita Tanner and Norris Cole
  • Hayley and Roy Cropper
  • Sunita and Dev Alahan
  • Tracy and Steve McDonald

Each image is complemented with a quote that conveys the essence of each relationship.

Completing the set are four further stamps, presented in a miniature sheet, that celebrate characters who have worked behind the bar at the iconic Rovers Return:

  • Bet Lynch
  • Raquel Watts
  • Liz McDonald
  • Gemma Winter

First broadcast in 1960, Coronation Street is the world’s longest-running television continuing drama – with over 10,000 episodes featuring more than 5,000 characters.

The stamps will be available on general sale from Thursday 28 May.
