This is the list of characters and their tropes for ''Series/CoronationStreet''. Be warned though, the cast is [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters voluminous]]. Only current characters have full character sheets since doing one for the hundreds that have existed in the show's 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 January 2017 in ''Coronation Street''. If you are not caught up, beware spoilers!

* TookALevelInKindness: Ever since finding out about Steve's depression, she treated him much better than she used to.

[[folder:1 Coronation Street]]

->'''Property Owner:''' ''Ken Barlow''

!!Ken Barlow

-->'''Duration''': 1960 --

-->'''Birthday''': 9 October 1939 (aged 78)

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

-> 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.
* 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. Comes up again after his stroke in 2016, which sees all his children (plus a grandchild) gather around to look after him and be criticized by him.
* 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 most recent wife Deirdre was not that much better, having had several affairs herself.

!!Tracy Barlow

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

-->'''Birthday''': 24 January 1977 (aged 40)

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

-> Née ''Tracy Langton''. Deirdre's daughter. 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 Platt (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.
* EasilyForgiven: Apart from the odd moments of people giving her the cold shoulder or being disowned by Ken, she is easily forgiven for all the horrible acts she has committed(and never learns from them) and seems to get on with life as normal. Even some characters seem to act like she is not a bad person overall, despite all she has done.
* 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, with moments of actually being likeable.
* 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.

!! Amy Barlow

-->'''Duration''': 2004 -

-->'''Birthday''': 9 February 2004 (aged 13)

-->'''Family''': Tracy Barlow (mother); Steve [=McDonald=] (father); Deirdre Barlow (grandmother); Liz [=McDonald=] (grandmother); Blanche Hunt (great-grandmother); Deirdre Barlow (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.
* TookALevelInJerkAss: Until she reached the age of about 10, Amy was a sweet, quiet, young girl, but overnight seemed to turn into a future Tracy.
* TheVoiceless: Before she was recast with her current actress in 2010, she rarely, if ever, spoke 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.

* RichBitch: Often seen as this by the other factory girls. To be fair though, she is very snobbish and big-headed.
* SmallNameBigEgo: She likes to consider herself middle-class, despite working in a factory.
** There was a hilarious scene in April 2014 when Maddie called Sally and Kevin middle-class -- Sally was delighted with that description but Kevin [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne got rather offended]].
** She said it again in February 2015:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Formerly to Steve [=McDonald=].

* {{Expy}}: Probably of Cilla Battersby-Brown, who left the show a few years previous to her arrival.
** Hilarity ensued when these two met each other in late 2014 and [[HateAtFirstSight did not seem to get on]].
* GossipyHens: Almost as bad as Norris Cole.
* YourCheatingHeart: Played with. A couple of years after she married Kirk Sutherland, it emerged that she was still married to her first husband and Craig's father. Narrowly avoided jail time.

!! Kirk Sutherland

-->'''Birthday''': 2 September 1998 (aged 19)

-->'''Family''': Beth Sutherland (mother); Sinead Tinker (first cousin)

-> Student. Portrayed by Colson Smith.

* BeingGoodSucks: Craig's altruism and kindness has often backfired on him or lead to problems. He was assaulted by Owen when he begrudgingly supported Faye during her secret pregnancy, Owen mistook Craig as the father of the baby. He displayed great courage and loyalty to Bethany during her ordeal with Nathan's sex ring but she initially rejected his crush on her and secretly became a stripper while they were together. The final part is [[RealityEnsues understandable considering her traumatic ordeal]] but it is not justified since she could of seeked therapy or voiced her trauma.
* CharacterDevelopment: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PQB26iXcVQ When he first appeared]], Craig was a scary and rough looking boy who had a creepy stare and a menacing attitude to Steve. Over the years, he has turned into a lovely guy and was Faye's closest friend and supported her through her secret pregnancy. Was enrolled in the special constable program with Greater Manchester Police but was rejected once they (as well as himself) discovered that his biological father was still in prison had a long criminal record.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Craig has become quite nice and charming in recent years and is a fan favourite.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Craig has a crush on his friend Bethany Platt and alot of people figured it out such as his mother and ArchEnemies Nathan Curtis and Neil Clifton. Bethany seems to reciprocating his crush during her storyline.
* HiddenDepths: In his first appearance he was labelled a CreepyChild with an unsettling gaze but he had skills in pottery which impressed Deidre. He was also suspected of being a vandal or committing crimes but it was revealed that he is a talented street artist. His street art was initially mistaken for a work of Banksy and it would of been worth a fortune if a professional had approved it but it was regarded as a close copy after analysing it.
* GentleGiant: He towers over most of the other characters and is roughly among the tallest of the young adult characters. He is one of the nicest characters in the series.
* KeepingSecretsSucks: Craig thought that a lit cigarette he had smoked had set the Rovers on fire (it was actually Karl Munro). Karl found out and tried to coerce and finally threaten to kill his mother in order to keep him quiet. He was also reluctantly keeping fayes pregnancy a secret.
* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: His biological father is a self serving jailbird and drug addict but Craig is the opposite and quickly abandons him when he discovers his true personality.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Faye told him keep her pregnancy a secret and he is nearly assaulted by [[PapaWolf Owen]], who believed that he was the father. He pinned him to a post to force a confession and punched Kirk in the face during the struggle. He is also close to Bethany Platt and shows signs of having a crush on her but [[ManipulativeBastard Nathan]] labels him a stalker to Bethany and she ignores his attempts to support her during the time she was bullied by Lauren.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He isn't bothered or distracted when his work leads him to a strip club. The only time he was distracted by the strippers was when he discovered that Bethany was one of them.
* SecretKeeper: For Karl Munro, whom he saw leaving and locking the door of the Rovers the night of the fire. He eventually confesses and Karl is jailed. He also reluctantly kept Faye's pregnancy a secret for her.

* ChekhovsSkill: Her piano playing -- came in handy when Rita Tanner needed someone to accompany her singing in the Rovers at Christmas 2010 ("A Winter's Tale" by David Essex).
* CloudCuckoolander: Of the highest order.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Seems to have had one with her mother Maureen, whose many bizarre behaviours (not going out at night due to her [[OminousOwl fear of owls]] etc) seem to have made Mary cut ties with her and talk about her as if she were dead.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Although she can be arrogant and rude at times, she does have kind moment. For example, when she won a flight to America as a prize in a competition, she instead gave the tickets to Roy and Hayley so that they could go and see Sylvia.
* LargeHam
* NoodleIncident: The many, many stories she tells about her upbringing and in particular her mother Maureen's behaviour and oddities.
* RegionalSpeciality: Is well trained in a variety of different cuisines of different cultures (French, Greek, Moroccan, Russian, Spanish etc) and has put on themed nights in Roy's Rolls and The Bistro, before she got fired
* SingleTargetSexuality: Towards Norris.
** And then Roy Cropper, for a while.
** Now its Dev Alahan.
** Briefly a paranormal expert named Brendan, even though he was married.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Like Norris, she appears to have a much higher opinion of her talents and skills than other people.

-> Née ''Gail Potter''. Frequently married daughter of Audrey Roberts. Portrayed by Helen Worth.

* ArchEnemy: Eileen Grimshaw, who took great pleasure in gloating when Lewis Archer stole all her money.
** It seems to have dissipated somewhat in 2016 after Michael (who both she and Eileen dated at different stages) died. Gail even asked Eileen to accompany her in the main car on the way to the funeral and they hugged after.
* CartwrightCurse: As she herself points out before Michael's funeral, most (four out of five; Martin Platt is still alive offscreen) of her husbands have died.
* ExtremeDoormat: Her last husband was a drug addict who stole from her repeatedly and drowned while trying to fake his own death, but she loved him anyway.

-> Hairdresser. Portrayed by Jack P. Shepherd.

* AttentionWhore: His main reason for doing anything.
* CrusadingWidower: He had planned to firebomb Clayton Hibbs' police van as revenge for Kylie's murder but was stopped by his family and crashed his car on the street before he had a chance to get to the court.
* DistressedDude: Of all the characters on the street, David seems to get himself in the most dangerous situations. He's been kidnapped, bound and gagged on a number of occassions and he takes a lot of physical punishment fairly regularly.
* {{Jerkass}}: Spent many years as this, now wavers between it and JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* MommasBoy: Despite once shoving her down the stairs, he was the first person to run to her when she was falsely imprisoned for Joe [=McIntyre's=] murder.
* MrFanservice: Not the most obvious hunk, but there is something quite attractive about him. He has been given quite a few ShirtlessScenes over the years and the camera does focus on his bulge from time to time.
* SmugSnake
* TheSociopath: He was played as one for several years but this behaviour has disappeared over time as he's apparently 'mellowed out'.
** This trait returned again when he found out about Kylie cheating with Nick. While he still loved her, he was furious with Nick and had no problem smashing up his flat.
** In 2016, he had planned to firebomb Clayton Hibbs' police van as revenge for Kylie's murder but was stopped by his family. Still caused plenty of havoc in the process, including severe burns on Anna Windass' legs after his car rolled and leaked petrol.
* TheUnfavorite: Compared to high achiever Nick and teenage mother Sarah Louise, he never got much attention and he never fails to remind his mother of that.
* TookALevelInKindness: After he settles down with Kylie, he becomes a very devoted husband and a fantastic father
* {{Troll}}: At one stage, it was possibly the only way to really describe his character. He simply liked getting a rise out of people or stirring up trouble for other people.

This suggests that she might be developing a phobia of intimacy or relationships however they eventually got together.

* AllMenArePerverts / CovertPervert: He tries to come onto Anna Windass when she turns up at his house to apologise for shouting at him. All while [[YourCheatingHeart still married to Valerie]].
* {{Blackmail}}:
** Gary Windass assaulted him and left him for dead in panic (in reaction to Phelan [[YourMom calling his mother]] Anna a tart). Phelan used the threat of telling the police (backed up by CCTV evidence) to keep all the money the Armstrong/Windass family are owed.
** Andy Carver assaulted him and left him for dead (noticing a pattern here?). Phelan blackmailed him into stealing a tow truck meant for Kevin Webster, followed up by burning down the garage. When Andy tried to turn him in, Phelan hit him over the head with a laptop and killed him.
* {{Even Evil Has Loved Ones}}: Does seem to show genuine affection and care for his long lost daughter Nicola, which even makes him consider changing his ways and step away from being a criminal.
* {{From Nobody to Nightmare}}: Phelan was introduced as a mere con artist who didn't pay Owen for the work he had done. The character got increasingly sinister, such as blackmailing Anna to have sex with him. That is bad enough, but upon his reintroduction in 2016 he started working to con most of the street, left Michael to succumb to his heart attack whilst taunting him, and in 2017 took an even darker turn by locking Michael's surrogate son Andy in a basement for nearly a year and tormenting him. In the end he forces Andy to murder Phelan's old partner in crime Vinny Ashford on the promise of releasing Andy once and for all, only to shoot Andy dead in cold blood. Yep, he has come a long way from just being a jerkass conman.
* {{Karma Houdini}}: Has become this with the amount of times he has managed to get away with his schemes, which has involved raping two women, murdering three men, conning half the street and other petty crimes. Phelan always comes out on top and those that are against him and know what he is truly like are never believed.
* {{Jerkass}}: From refusing to pay Owen for work done back in 2013, to trying to have an affair with Owen's partner Anna, to withholding their profits and investment from the Armstrongs/Windasses, there doesn't seem to be any kinder side to him.
** He did seem slightly regretful when he thought he was leaving Eileen for good with the scam money.
* UnholyMatrimony: His ex wife Valerie was a RichBitch who was no better than her husband. She didn't sympathise with Anna at all when the latter tried to tell her about Phelan's pass at her.

-> Portrayed by Johnny Briggs. Owned the factory over the road (amongst other things), for most of its existence starting as Balwin's Casuals and then after it became Underworld. Mike was a tenacious self-made man who got where he was by hard work and a lot of charm, not that he ever let anyone forget it. 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.
