This year, Coronation Street has featured the marriage of a longstanding transexual character - with abundant warmth and love, and without fuss or sensation - and has managed to come up with the most persuasive advertisement for lesbianism, in Sophie and Sian (I want to be a lesbian!), ever. And let's not forget recent appearances by radiant boy candy Lucien Laviscount (far left).
Next month, the serial is 50 years old. It's going to be epic.
More Lucien after the jump.
