Freelance journalist and PR professional Martyn Hett is a Coronation Street superfan and the original creator of viral sensation, The Audrey Roberts Noise.

The 'Tattoo Fixers' Scandal - My Story

There's been a lot of controversy recently over Channel 4's hit show, <em>Tattoo Fixers</em>. I've found the whole thing a little bizarre, if I'm honest. I had a brilliant time on <em>Tattoo Fixers</em>. I was treated incredibly well and I'm over the moon with my tattoo.

Everybody knows a Sally Metcalfe. She's the neighbour whose curtains are constantly twitching, desperate to stay one step ahead of the others whilst secretly yearning to fit in.

A Day In The Life Of A 'Daily Mail' Victim

I woke the following morning to find the story had been covered by the <em>Metro</em>, the <em>Mirror</em> and, most terrifyingly, the <em>Daily Mail</em>. Initially, I found it hilarious, before realising that I would soon become the target of the brutal and relentless weirdos who leave comments on the site.

Crisis On The Cobbles: A Relationship on the Rocks

As my TV recorder slowly fills itself with unwatched episodes of my beloved soap, I have found myself feeling demotivated. Corrie marathons used to be my idea of heaven, but nowadays they find themselves up there with 'tackle the ironing' on my list of chores. Why? <em>Coronation Street</em> has well and truly lost the plot.
