Thursday and Friday night's Coronation Street had some wonderful touches and you can read our blogger Emma's review of it here. Friday 8 July was, of course, the first anniversary of the passing of Deirdre Barlow, on a day in which she would have celebrated her 61st birthday too.
In the Rovers, Ken and Rita reminisced and remembered Deirdre. A pantomine was mentioned in which Deirdre played Dandini...
The actress who played Tricia Hopkins is a lovely lady by the name of Kathy Jones. We met Kathy at Corriefest a few years ago and she really is wonderful.
Kathy was interviewed on The Corrie Years. You can see her in action
in the Gail Potter section starting here at 1'.12" via YouTube.
