THE McDonald family arrived on the Corrie cobbles back in 1989.
Since then most of them have come and gone (and come back again), but one member of the family is still a permanent fixture on the Street.
Jim is played by Charles Lawson and made his first appearance on Coronation Street with the rest of the McDonald family in October 1989.
He appeared as a regular character from 1989 to 2000.
Since 2003 he has made guest appearances on the soap.
Jim was introduced along with his wife Liz and their twin sons Andy and Steve McDonald.
His storylines have often revolved around his family relationships and various crimes, which have resulted in several stints in prison.
Jim was jailed for the manslaughter of drug dealer Jez, after he killed him in revenge for attacking his son Steve.
Later storylines included Jim escaping from prison, Liz divorcing him for a second time, and then being sent back to prison for a bank robbery.
Actress Beverley Callard made her first appearance in Corrie in 1984 as Brian Tilsley's friend..
She then returned with the more significant role of Liz McDonald on October 27, 1989.
She remained on the soap until November 1998.
Actress Bev had brief stints on the soap after leaving, but returned on a permanent basis in October 2013.
The Corrie character is the mother of twins Steve and Andy.
Liz is probably best known for working in the Rovers – she started off as a barmaid in 1991 but became landlady and licensee in 2006 when Steve bought the pub.
After a stint as a receptionist at the medical centre, she's returned to pull pints at the Rovers.
However Bev left the show for good in 2019.
