Coronation Street has been a British institution since it made its debut in black and white in 1960. Set in the fictional Salford town of Weatherfield the ITV1 soap remains one of the most popular TV shows, and not just here in Britain. Coronation Street is also one of the longest-running and much-loved dramas on Canadian television.
It’s double trouble on Coronation Street this week when there’s a meeting of minds between Eva and Adam. Meddling Adam tries to blackmail Aidan Connor over the photograph he has of him and Maria. And when Aidan refuses to pay up, he orders him to tell fiancee Eve the truth about his affair. But Adam doesn’t know that Eva already knows about the affair, and has hatched a revenge plan that she has no intention of bringing to an end any time soon.
Coronation Street stars have helped to raise £50,000 for charity during a movies themed ball. Debbie Rush and Julia Goulding, who play Anna Windass and Shona Ramsey in Corrie , attended the glamorous gathering in the grounds of Pure Leisure Group owner John Morphet’s farm near Milnthorpe, Lancashire. They joined Debbie’s daughter, EastEnders actress Poppy Rush, at the event held in aid of Cash for Kids.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
