    Thanks so much John! I’ve watched all 3 parts of epi 1 and there’s more!!! Luv it!

    Did anyone watch the Corrie Crazy special on CBC? Anyone else think it was pretty obvious who was getting married????? There were tons of clues and they did a really poor job of blurring out the ‘bride’s face!

  6. Beanie says:

    What WAS surprising was interviewing of all these great Canadian Corrie fans and there was no mention of Corrie Canuck!!!!! I think a spotlight on Glacia would have been in order.

    I loved, loved, loved Corrie Crazy, even with the spoiler.
    Just wondering if anyone here was in it?
