Monday night's soap night for couple

It seems we’re not the only ones counting the seconds until we can go home and curl up on the sofa in front of tonight’s Corrie.

Coleen McLoughlin, 20, and Wayne Rooney, 21, are so obsessed with getting their Monday night soap fix they’ve even given the evening a special name.

‘We call Monday nights “Mad Mondays” because we’ll watch Emmerdale, Coronation Street, EastEnders, then Corrie again – that’s our night in, watching the soaps,’ she says.

‘Wayne never used to watch them, but I think I’ve converted him into a fan. If I’m cooking, then it’ll more than likely be spaghetti bolognese and we might have the odd glass or two of wine.

‘If there’s nothing else on or if I’m not doing anything, then I’ll go to bed. If I’ve had a big weekend I can easily go to bed at 9.30pm.’

We know it’s a cliché, but Coleen really is a girl after our own hearts. Even if we’re a bit bitter that, unlike her, we’re not home from work in time for Emmerdale’s 7pm start.
