* {{Queen}}: Their "I Want To Break Free" video, where the bandmembers are dressed in drag as characters from the show, are, according to WordOfGod, meant largely as an AffectionateParody of ''CoronationStreet''. [[PopCultureIsolation The fact that the soap isn't well-known in America]] meant Americans weren't familiar with what Queen were parodying, and the crossdressing aspect [[ValuesDissonance led to the video being banned]] on {{MTV}}.

** Upon both Tracy and Peter's returns in the early 2000s, there were talks for them to [[BrotherSisterIncest become involved with one another]] and Tracy to become pregnant as a result of the affair. This, thankfully, never came about, due to some very [[{{Squick}} obvious reasons.]]
** Also, there was supposed to be a conclusion to the Maya Sharma storyline involving a trial against her, but was left unresolved due to some personal reasons involving Jimmi Harkishin, who plays Dev Alahan.
