This is the list of characters and their tropes for ''CoronationStreet''. Be warned though, as a LongRunner, the cast is [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters voluminous]]. Only current characters have full character sheets since doing one for the hundreds that have existed in the shows history would probably be a lifelong project. Characters not currently appearing on the show and certain very notable dead characters have their own section with brief descriptions at the bottom of the page.

There is a map to the left, made by the Ordnance Survey.

This page is current as of November 2014 in ''Coronation Street''. If you are not caught up, beware spoilers!

-->'''Family''': Deirdre Barlow (wife); Peter Barlow (son); Tracy Barlow (adoptive daughter); Simon Barlow (grandson); Amy Barlow (granddaughter); Carla Connor (daughter-in-law)

-> The oldest continuously present character on the show. Portrayed by Bill Roache.

* ArchEnemy: Mike Baldwin, for literally decades, until his death a few years ago.
* CulturalRebel: Ken was the first in his family to attend University and has always aspired to somewhat more intellectual than his neighbours and family.
* LongRunner: Worth noting, as he is the only remaining original cast member from the first episode (from ''1960''!) and has never left the show at any point.
** He was out of the show due to certain allegations against him. He was found not guilty in February 2014 and returned.
* PoliticallyMotivatedTeacher: An ardent socialist, he enjoyed sharing his views with a captive audience or just anyone really.
* PutOnABus / RealLifeWritesThePlot: He was out of the show whilst his trial was in progress. The explanation given was that he was visiting [[CanadaEh Canada]]. Having been found not guilt, TheBusCameBack.
* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: His son and daughter, Peter and Susan.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: He has had moments of this with all of his adult children. While somewhat justified (like when Tracy killed her boyfriend), his treating Peter (who is basically a well meaning chronic screw-up) and Lawrence (who had just met a few weeks ago) like this is an example of his frustration with his working class existence.
* YourCheatingHeart: Frequently. His last affair was only a couple of years ago and he has never been faithful to any of his wives. Although his current wife Deirdre is not that much better, having had several affairs herself.


!!Deirdre Barlow

-->'''Duration''': 1972, 1973 --

-->'''Birthday''': 8 July 1955 (aged 58)

-->'''Family''': Ken Barlow (husband); Tracy Barlow (daughter); Amy Barlow (granddaughter)

-> Nιe ''Deirdre Hunt''. Another one of the longest running characters. Portrayed by Anne Kirkbride.

* CatchPhrase: "Oh, Tracy". (whenever Tracy does something bad -- which is frequently)
* ExtremeDoormat: For Tracy.
* ItsAllAboutMe: One thing about Deirdre is that it's all about her feelings and what she wants.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Continues to put Tracy on a pedastal, however horrible her crimes.
* NoSympathy: Unless your name happens to be Tracy Barlow.
** Peter Barlow can also illicit sympathy from her even when set the house on fire, unless he's [[YourCheatingHeart "putting it about"]] then he's [[IAmNotMyFather "just like his dad"]]


!!Tracy Barlow

-->'''Duration''': 1977 -- 1983, 1985 –- 1997, 1999, 2002 -- 2007, 2010 –-

-->'''Birthday''': 24 January 1977 (aged 37)

-->'''Family''': Deirdre Barlow (mother); Ken Barlow (adoptive father); Ray Langton (biological father); Amy Barlow (daughter); Blanche Hunt (grandmother); Peter Barlow (stepbrother); Carla Connor(sister-in-law)

-> Nιe ''Tracy Langton''. Deirdre's daughter who works in Underworld. Portrayed by Kate Ford.

* ArchEnemy: Practically everyone on the street except Deirdre, Peter and Rob, but in particular, over the years --
** Tina [=McIntyre=].
** Steve [=McDonald's=] [[{{Yandere}} wives and girlfriends]]:
*** Karen.
*** Becky.
*** Michelle (especially since Tracy slept with her son Ryan and pretended to be pregnant by him).
** Gail [=McIntyre=] (who she tried to get convicted of murder) and Gail's family.
* ConsummateLiar: Although not so much any more, since everybody knows what she's like.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Since her return, she has almost never done anything nice for ''anyone'' if she wasn't planning to get something out of it or screw them over in the end.
* {{Flanderization}}: Upon her return in 2002, she was more of a simple {{Jerkass}} with moments of sympathy, but for a time after her return in 2010, she had degraded into almost a cartoonish CardCarryingVillain. She's returned to simple {{Jerkass}} behaviour currently.
* TheGhost / TheUnseen: After becoming a teenager, she spent several ''years'' living in her room, before she finally reappeared.
* {{Jerkass}}: One of, if not, the biggest one currently on the show.
* LittleBrotherIsWatching: An inversion, since it's her older stepbrother Peter whose opinion matters far more her to than almost anyone else. Her mother can tell her to leave Steve alone daily for weeks on end but it's not until Peter tells her to give it up that she actually relents.
* ManipulativeBitch: Made her own mother lie under oath about her murder of Charlie Stubbs.
* MoralityPet: A bit of an odd example with her older stepbrother Peter, who is far from helpless and actually something of an AntiHero himself. Since her return, he is literally the only person she is ever truly nice or kind to (even with her daughter Amy its usually [[ItsAllAboutMe all about Tracy]]), most noticeably after she found out his then-wife Leanne had cheated on him.
* OffOnATechnicality: She did serve three years in prison for the murder of Charlie Stubbs. She was released on Christmas Eve 2010 because the expert who handled her forensic evidence was found to be corrupt and his evidence was null and void.
* SmugSnake
* SpoiledBrat: Even as an adult.

-->'''Duration''': 2004 –-

-->'''Birthday''': 9 February 2004 (aged 10)

-->'''Family''': Tracy Barlow (mother); Steve [=McDonald=] (father); Deirdre Barlow (grandmother); Liz [=McDonald=] (grandmother); Blanche Hunt (great-grandmother)

-> Tracy and Steve [=McDonald's=] daughter. Portrayed by Elle Mulvaney.

* EmbarrassingFirstName: It was changed pretty soon, but her name when she was under Roy and Hayley's custody was Patience Cropper.
* TheVoiceless: Rarely, if ever, speaks on-screen.
* WhosYourDaddy: Initially thought to be the daughter of Roy Cropper. Tracy kept the true paternity to herself until she felt it was appropriate -- the middle of Steve [=McDonald's=] wedding to Karen.

* SmallNameBigEgo: She likes to consider herself middle-class, despite working in a factory.

* ArchEnemy: Tracy Barlow, who teases and mocks Tina whenever she can about her surrogacy, her boyfriend leaving and anything she can think up of, generally.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Peter Barlow -- she wouldn't accept that they cannot have a relationship (he is married) and she kept pursuing him or trying to make him jealous.

* FamousLastWords: Immediately before she gets bludgeoned to death.
--> '''Tina:''' I was born gobby.
--> '''Rob:''' You'll ''die'' gobby, too.

** She would have succumbed to this illness in a matter of weeks had she not taken control of it and ended her life the way she wanted to.

Mike always liked Deirdre and that turned into an affair in 1983 unfortunately Deirdre decided to stay married to Ken. Ken would never forgive Mike for the affair although Mike and Deirdre would remain friends until his death. A few years later Mike would marry Ken's daughter Susan (at least partly to annoy Ken) but his sexism (she wanted to work he wanted a housewife) would cost him the relationship. Susan left him after telling him she aborted his baby. A few years later he would meet Alma Sedgewick, arguably the love of his life who he then dumped for a young blond tart. This would be a pattern for them and they would break up and get back together several times for much the same reason. In 2001, Peter Barlow revealed that Susan had lied and had actually had a son with Mike named Adam. Mike's rivalry with Ken flared up again when Susan died and the two men fought for custody of Adam. As he was getting older, Mike decided to bring in a partner: his nephew Danny Baldwin. It was revealed that Danny was actually Mike's son.
