1. Kylie is now older than Anne Charleston was when she played her mother in Neighbours.
When the Aussie soap began in 1985, Charleston was 42. Kylie is now 45.
2. Hollyoaks turns 18 this year.
3. Tom from Hollyoaks is 14 years old.
Although to be fair the agent of death for all those around him still goes round acting like a simpering eight-year-old.
4. It is now 11 years since this woman left Hear’Say.
5. It is now 18 years since Julie Goodyear left Corrie.
She made a brief, unsuccessful return in 2002, but dropped out soon after starting filming. Her scenes were hastily rewritten and a character played by Maureen Lipman was introduced to cover her storylines.
6. Bethany will now be the same age as Sarah-Lou was when she had her.
Coronation Street courted controversy with soap’s youngest-ever gymslip Mum when Sarah-Louise platt became pregnant at 13. This was in 2000 - 13 years ago.
8. And “Sharongate” on EastEnders was that same year.
Which was 1994.
