Researchers from the University of Plymouth, the Open University and the University of York are looking to recruit dedicated Coronation Street fans who have watched it regularly for at least the last 20 years. The study can be completed online and it takes 25 minutes to be completed. Please note that the task can only be completed on a laptop or computer screen, it will not work on a mobile phone or a tablet. You will be asked to complete two different tasks: In the first one, you will see different images of some of the characters from Coronation Street and will be asked to rate how much each image resembles that character. In the second task, you will see the name of a character followed by an image and you will be asked to decide whether the name matches the person depicted in the image. All participants who complete the study will have the opportunity to enter a free prize draw to win a £25 Amazon voucher.
