How many stars from the Cobbles can you name?

Can you believe Coronation Street has been on our screens since 1960? How amazing is that!

Over the years we have seen stars come and go like the tide and others who stick around for the long haul. But one star who hinted she could be missing life on the Cobbles is Loose Women star Denise Welch.

The 59-year-old played scheming Natalie Barnes on the soap between 1998 to 2000, but in an epic Wetherfield throwback she got Corrie fans all nostalgic about the noughties era when posted an old school photos of the cast from 2000.

And fans loved it.

Quickly her time line was flooded with comments such as: "The best days. Curly, Alma, Mike Baldwin, Fred Elliot . So many of them who are very much missed."

"Back when Corrie was worth watching. Nostalgia!"


Others added: "Wow what a throwback! Just taken a trip down memory lane looking at this picture and pointing out old and young faces! Reminds me of of " and "Amazing cast.  Wish it was this good now. Never use to miss and episode Betty, Jack, Vera, Deirdre and loved your character, Den, Natalie was awesome!" 

Even some of the cast members took some time out to reminisce about the old days...well kind of.

"OM..f'ing...G!!! Time sucks ," Adam Rickitt, who played Nick Tilsley in the soap from 1997 to 1999 and again from 2002 to 2004, wrote with three laughing face emojis.

And Jane Danson, who plays Leanne Battersby also commented "Happy days!" with a kiss emoji.

If you look closely at the snap you can see stars close to Denise photo included Rovers Return mainstay Liz McDonald (played by Beverley Callard), then-Platt matriarchs Martin (Sean Wilson) and his wife Gail (Helen Worth) and Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls).

In an ironic twist, Denise was also close to her on-screen love rival Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) in the snap, as the pair famously came to blows in an explosive cat-fight over Sally's husband Kevin (Michael Le Vell).
