Happy Birthday to Audrey Roberts - 75 today

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog July 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

It's Audrey's birthday today on Coronation Street.  And although Gail said earlier this week that "we gloss over that bit" when Michael asked her how old Audrey is this year, we can reveal that Audrey will turn 75.

Both Corriepedia and Corrie.net list Audrey's birth date as 23 July 1940 which makes Audrey 75 years old today.

Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey, was first seen on screen in April 1979 and her first scene was a belter. It was on Youtube - but it's been taken offline, sadly. It shows Audrey Potter (as she was called back then) in her dressing gown enjoying a fag and a chat with Elsie Tanner.
"So, Gail tells me you've been divorced?" asks Audrey, nosy as ever.
"Only twice," replies Elsie.
