PINGS-where Corrie fans get together and have a wonderul time
-we chat about the show, have trivia and games, some good food/drinks and share lots of laughs

Over the years we have had special guests including our favourite 'extra' Darran and his wife Eileen, Mark Llwellyn, Peter Riley (who is sadly no longer with us) and Donna, plus Debbie Travis. We've also had them for special online Corrie friends who were in town.
-our pings have been filmed for the CBC news, Living in Toronto and the Coronation Street special Corrie Crazy which had Debbie Travis attend
-we've met a lot of wonderful fans over the years, many have become very special friends

Gallery 7: British Isles show 2010

Group photo.jpg

Debbie Travis is going to be the host of a Corrie special to be aired in Dec. about Corrie and Canadians. Today Debbie joined me in line at the British show to meet Becky and Sean. We chatted and chatted and were filmed for ages. I still can't get over all of those flashing cameras. (for Debbie of course, but I'll be in quite a few)

It was great that Terri-Lynn, Carol, Denise, Iris, Judi and Janet got to be with us. It was also great to see so many of our other Corrie friends throughout the day.

I can't believe all the wonderful things that have happened to us lately. Corrie and its fans are the best!!!!

99 viewsThis is going to be one fantastic evening- one spent with David Neilson (Roy) & Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley) in an interview style show. Fans will get the chance to ask questions too. All this in reserved comfy seats, no pushing/rushing or long line ups.

There are shows in Halifax, St. John's, Ottawa and Mississauga. (just to clarify for Toronto fans- Roy & Hayley WILL NOT be at the British Isles Show--this is a different event).
