The spirit of Ida Clough returns to Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog August 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

There's a good interview with Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Metcalfe in Coronation Street, in this week's Inside Soap magazine.

Sally talks about getting involved with Pat Phelan as he forges ahead with his dodgy building plans.  She says  Sally enjoys the fact that Phelan talks to her like a councillor and takes her very seriously, but could it all come crashing down on her head when she gets behind his scam?

Well, the council knocks back Phelan's plans, the mag reveals, but Sally goes ahead supporting Phelan. She ends up wrapped around his little finger.  Tim, of course, sees right through Pat Phelan and doesn't believe a word he says.

And as for Ida Clough - the factory firebrand who led everyone out on strike at the drop of a silk gusset?  Her spirit lives on next week when Sally leads the factory girls out on strike too.

Ida Clough
The walk out begins when Sally accuses Jenny of spying on them all and reporting them to Johnny. The girls all leave work and head to the pub where Sally is hailed as the hero of the hour.

Could be fun to watch!
