There's a wonderful radio interview with Roy Hudd where he talks about being Coronation Street's undertaker, Archie Shuttleworth.
Roy was interviewed on BBC Radio 4 by Sandi Toksvig. The Corrie snippet is only just over two minutes long and is definitely worth listening to.
Roy talks about Archie's catchphrase and how the character was created by writer Daran Little. He also reveals what happened when Archie had to bury Fred Elliot the butcher, I say the butcher.
Have a little listen to it here.
