Alison King has suggested ITV soap Coronation Street is renamed – and you might not be surprised to hear what she is suggesting!
In fact, ever since the Connors moved into Weatherfield, many fans have been calling it the jokey new moniker anyway…
In an interview with What’s On TV, 45-year-old actress Alison proposed the new name…
Discussing the Connor family’s influence on the cobbles, she joked: “The Connors have got their fingers in so many pies at the moment that it should be ‘Connor-nation Street’ instead of Coronation Street.”
The actress, who plays factory boss Carla Connor, went on to explain why she loves her on-screen family so much, adding: “There are so many different and complex characters and they’re all absolutely brilliant.
“There’s Kate, who is crazy, impulsive and caring, then there’s Jenny thinking she rules the roost, and Michelle and Carla, who are more like sisters than real sisters are!”
And that’s just for starters!
Many Corrie fans LOVE the family, and are happy with the ‘Connor takeover’.
One fan took to Twitter recently to simply say: “Adore the Connors, my faves.”
Another observed: “The Connors are beginning to own of all Weatherfield.”
Connornation Street has arrived. Soon even the meerkats will be Connors. #corrie

In fact, several ITV viewers even nicknamed the Street BEFORE Alison, writing: “Connornation Street has arrived. Soon even the meerkats will be Connors.”
While one fan had a stark warning to scriptwriters, typing: “The Connors taking over the bistro the rovers and underworld I can cope with…. They dare try and take the cabin from Rita and there’ll be a strongly worded letter headed your way.”
