3 Degrees of Separation - Corrie and Eastenders

I love working out the connections between people, and how they are so closely separated from, well, pretty much everyone else!! I started this concept with The Walking Dead, and its been truly fascinating how the cast and music etc. link to other actors, shows and films.

Now I have decided to look closer to home - two of the biggest soaps on UK TV - Coronation Street and Eastenders. I want to look how they link together - there have to be some overlaps and linkages and I intend to do just that - work out how they are connected.

So to begin with then lets look for obvious links:
