1980 was a landmark year for Coronation Street, featuring both its 20th anniversary and 2000th episode. Violet Carson made her final appearance as Ena Sharples. At the time she was expected to return, but ill health kept the actress away from the series.

Prominent storylines included the death of Renee Roberts in a traffic accident, the marriage of Emily Bishop and Arnold Swain, who later turned out to be a bigamist, and the birth of Nick Tilsley on New Year's Eve.

105 new episodes were broadcast on ITV in 1980.
