Bethany Britney Platt Parents: Sarah Louise Platt and Neil Fearns
The most controversial birth on Coronation Street. Sarah Louise Platt was only a 12-year old schoolgirl when she fell pregnant by classmate Neil Fearns, later bemoaning that they had "only done it once". Sarah Louise didn't realise she was pregnant until five months later, when it was too late for an abortion, and so had to give birth to the child. Although her pregnancy and birth went smoothly, she rapidly realised that her childhood had ended and her life would never be the same again.

5 June

19 February 2001
Laura Barnes 9lb 6oz, Gloucestershire; Parents: Natalie Barnes and Vinny Sorrell
Landlady of the Rovers Return Natalie has never really recovered from the loss of her husband, Des Barnes. She started a relationship with Vinny Sorrell, the Rovers potman, but the relationship was always rocky and it came as no surprise whe it broke up in October 2000 - though it was surprising that he strayed with Natalie's sister Debs. Shortly afterwards Natalie found she was pregnant by Vinny, but chose to keep this secret and Vinny and Debs left Weatherfield for a new life working on cruise ships. Sick of the small talk in the enclosed Weatherfield community, Natalie sold the Rovers and went to live in the Cotswolds with her cousin Helen, and gave birth to Laura in February 2001, happy to be a single parent.

26 December
Ben Watts 6lb 2oz, No7 Coronation Street; Parents: Norman and Emma Watts
Ben arrived a little early - whilst his dad was taking Vera Duckworth to visit Terry in prison. Norris Cole and his encyclopedic medical knowledge stood in whilst both Curly and the midwives rushed to the scene. Ben, named after Norris's middle name, was safely delivered on the blue sofa which is still in the Watts' lounge...


8 April 2002
Joshua Peacock Weatherfield General Hospital; Parents: Maxine Peacock and Matt Ramsden
On the very night her husband was having infertility treatment, Maxine Peacock had a drunken fling with next-door neighbour and GP Matt Ramsden. Soon after she found she was pregnant, but didn't know whether this was by her doctor or newly-virile husband. Unable to contain his excitement that he may be a father, Dr Ramsden finally revealed his secret to a horrified Ashley and Maxine, and Maxine promptly went into labour 8 weeks early. Joshua was delivered safely and without ill-effects, with Maxine insisting his father was Ashley, but Ashley refusing to accept the baby as his own. Ashley demanded a paternity test, but on the day of the test, when Joshua came out of hospital, Ashley relented and finally accepted Joshua as his son. Ashley is listed as the father on Joshua's birth certificate, but a DNA test in February 2003 following Maxine's death revealed that Matt Ramsden was Josh's biological father.
