Wentworth Forum > Escapees > Other Soaps > Coronation Street

Coronation Street creator and writer Tony Warren has died at the age of 79.

Warren, who created the show for Granada Television when he was 23, wrote episodes until the late 1970s.

Coronation Street executive producer Kieran Roberts said Warren, who died on Tuesday after a short illness, was "a pioneer, a revolutionary, a true genius [and] a giant of British television".

William Roache, who has played Ken Barlow since the first episode, said he would be "so desperately missed".

He described the writer, who continued to visit the soap's set in Trafford until recently, as the "father" of the soap.
Sad to hear this - a bit of 'Corrie' has surely died with him.

RIP Tony.
