Coronation Street is one of the worldâ€™s longest running shows. And here in Canada, itâ€™s one of the most popular. Yes, despite being on the air for more than 56 years, the show continues to enjoy a loyal and passionate fanbase.
One of the showâ€™s biggest fans happens to be the one and only Rick Mercer. So minutes before he went to air with the Rick Mercer Report, I got a chance to talk to him about why he loves the show. He also drops some pretty good Corrie factoids is well. I had no idea what the black cabs meant…
(On a personal note, I may look like Iâ€™m acting all cool, but this was an unbelievable experience for me. Still pinching myself.)
