SIR - Coronation Street episode on February 2, a few minutes in, Brian said to his partner “I'll be STOOD there bidding our loyal customers” etc. NO!

He'll be STANDING there or he'll STAND there.

Where can our youngsters learn correctly spoken English nowadays? Could a person at ITV be aware that they are contributing to the misuse of our English language? I doubt it. PURE LAZINESS and/or 'can't be bothered syndrome' has now crept in.
