First suggestion for 2020 Stamp Programme

According to The Mirror, who have their story from Talk TV, the 60th Anniversary of TV soap Coronation Street will be marked with a set of stamps next year, 2020.

Talk TV can exclusively reveal ITV bosses are in talks with Royal Mail over the anniversary collection.
Likely to be featured are iconic couple Jack and Vera Duckworth - who were played by the late Bill Tarmey and Liz Dawn.
And Corrie icon Hilda Ogden - who arrived on the street in 1964, played by Jean Alexander - is also in line for the accolade.
“It’s a huge honour,” a source tells me. “The collection would be an acknowledgement of how beloved Corrie is in this country.
Whether ITV is talking to Royal Mail, or to Isle of Man Stamps or another producer, none of the postal operators has made any comment yet.

A set of Coronation Street cinderella 'stamps' was produced in 1995 for one of the Scottish islands, and the programme was left out of the Royal Mail ITV anniversary commemoration in 2005.
