  Corrie gets new family to boost ratings
Updated 04 February 2002, 15.51
Coronation Street titles
Coronation Street is to get a new family who will cause scandal in Weatherfield.

The family will include a good-looking 'bad boy' who will set pulses racing across the street.

It's said he will go to work for factory owner Mike Baldwin, but will prove to be even more nasty and ruthless than Baldwin himself.

'Shock waves'

Programme makers are also bringing back Corrie favourite, barmaid Bet Lynch, in a bid to boost ratings.

Introducing a new family worked well for rival soap EastEnders when the Slater family were brought in with loads of family secrets and gossip.

Although Coronation Street bosses say they are not trying to compete with the BBC1 soap, they did admit they were bringing in a new family who will "send shock waves through the street".
