THE SOAP YEARS
Remember these plots that had us hooked?
10 YEARS AGO – CORRIE
Becky Granger (pictured) was arrested by her old enemy DC Hooch for her drunken crime spree sparked by Jason Grimshaw finishing with her. She gave a false alibi of being with Steve McDonald, which Steve confirmed to help Becky stay out of trouble.
15 YEARS AGO – EMMERDALE
Andy Sugden discovered a baby-faced stranger asleep in his bed.
The young man, named Daz (pictured left, with Andy), claimed to be his halfbrother. Andy visited his dad in prison who confirmed Daz’s story, so Andy took him in.
20 YEARS AGO – EASTENDERS
Queen Vic landlady Peggy Mitchell and Frank Butcher (played by Barbara Windsor and Mike Reid, pictured) got engaged, and had a big knees-up at her pub. The pair went on to marry and become one of the show’s most iconic couples.
