THE SOAP YEARS
Remember these plots that had us hooked?
10 YEARS AGO – EASTENDERS
Sean Slater (Robert Kazinsky, above) and his wife Roxy were racked with worry as the condition of their prematurely born baby got worse. That made it a particularly bad time for Jack Branning to turn up demanding a paternity test.
15 YEARS AGO – EMMERDALE
Ronnie Marsden (Ray Ashcroft, above) made advances to his daughter-inlaw Siobhan, leading her to hit him with a bottle. Her husband Paul – Ronnie’s son – told his mum about the incident, and she duly threw Ronnie out of their home.
20 YEARS AGO – CORRIE
Tyrone Dobbs arrived on the Street and was later taken in by Vera and Jack Duckworth (above, with Tyrone). Tyrone is still in the show and has had a doomed marriage to cheating Molly and suffered violence at the hands of fiancée Kirsty.
