RIP, the Creator of Coronation Street Anthony McVay "Tony" Simpson MBE (aka Tony Warren, 8th July 1936 – 1st March 2016)

Back in 2010, we were privileged to see Mr Warren in person at the BFI, entertaining the audience as he introduced the 50th anniversary showing of the first three episodes of Corrie.


  1. Respect to the late Mr. Warren. The Mistress hasn't missed an episode of Corrie in years.

    1. I haven't seen an episode of Corrie in years. Possibly the last time I remember watching it was around the time Alf Roberts died in the chair at his own birthday party. Or when Bet Lynch had to be rescued from that fire at The Rovers. Jx
