    When did Coronation Street begin?

    From the moment Coronation Street first aired live on December 9, 1960, millions have been gripped by the ups and downs of Weatherfield’s residents.

    Its early days portrayed a ­realistic kitchen-sink drama showing the ordinary day-to-day lives of working-class northerners, and the show was considered ground-breaking.

    It is the second longest running soap opera in the UK after The Archers.

    But not everyone liked it. One early critic wrote: “The ­programme is doomed from the outset . . . with its dreary signature tune and grim scenes of a row of terraced houses.”

    Over sixty years on and the signature tune and terraced houses are still there.

    Home improvements with EastEnders' Kheerat Panesar

    Launching JHD Homes on Instagram back in February 2021, Jaz Deol – Kheerat Panesar – works as a property investor when his filming schedule isn’t too gruelling.

    Sharing images of some of his recent projects, he is focusing on properties in South Wales at the moment, and his bio reads: “Passion for creating homes and building long term wealth.”

    Fans were initally worried that he would potentially be leaving the soap, but it appears that Jaz just likes to pack out his scheduled and explore other passions.

    Commenting under one image on his property account, the actor and businessman on and off-screen said: “There’s no question that market right now is incredibly hot. You could argue the many reasons why but the bottom line is that finding good deals is harder than ever. 

    “How do you know what is a good deal or a bad deal? That’s entirely up to you. Key thing is to know your critieria, your why and your level of comfort with risk.”
