In 2014 Corrie moved to their new home at Media City in Salford, Manchester.
Hebden had previously played the role of Carlos, Mavis Riley’s (Thelma Barlow) Spanish lover, in 1974. Norris appeared on a recurring basis, until he was axed in April 1997 by Brian Park.
However two years later, the character was reintroduced on a regular basis. He has lived for several years with fellow character, Emily Bishop (Eileen Derbyshire) at 3 Coronation Street.
Corrie is a British soap opera made by Granada Television and shown on ITV since 1960.
The programme centres on Coronation Street in Weatherfield, a fictional town based on Salford, its terraced houses, café, corner shop, newsagents, textile factory and The Rovers Return pub. The fictional street was built in the early 1900s and named in honour of the coronation of King Edward VII.
Recorded by Alex Belfield for Celebrity Radio & BBC 2011.
Norris and Mary are definitely the best characters in Coronation Street and I would like to see a lot more of them. The recent storylines also involving Sylvia, Roy, Hayley and Emily were fabulous, I think that they are the real stars of the show and the acting is superb.
