If you thought the actress who played Michael Rodwell's aunt Barbara Deakin on Coronation Street last night looekd familiar, then you're not alone. I sat and scratched my head too. The actress is Beatrice Kelly and she's one of those actresses who have been on our TV screens for decades in many different roles.
Beatrice Kelly has appeared on Coronation Street before. In 1996 she played Carol Palmer who was the mother in law of the red-haired Claire Palmer, who played Des Barnes' girlfriend.
Her IMDB profile is here.
