40 years of Corrie's Gail

Another Corrie star reaches a significant milestone today.

Yes, Gail Potter-Tilsley-Tilsley-Platt-Hillman-McIntyre made her first appearance in Coronation Street exactly 40 years ago today! 

Have a look at her five husbands here.

Gail's life has been one long misery, although Helen Worth always seems so chirpy and cheerful. I don't know how she does it! I love Gail, a true Corrie stalwart. I hope she is around for many more years to come. 

So while many of us think of the catastrophes that litter Gail's life in Weatherfield, whether it Brian Tilsley and his mother Ivy, Richard Hillman trying to bump off half the street or Joe McIntyre accidentally bumping off himself, I'd rather capture Gail in lighter mood with this tribute. 

First of all, the wonderful onscreen relationship between Gail and her mam, Audrey: 

And now, one of my favourite Corrie funny moments of recent years. Oh yes, I give you Gail, Deirdre and a Manchester Tart....

"Oh Ken, do something!"

And if that wasn't enough, possibly the best of all. Gail and Eileen scrapping on the cobbles!

However long Gail stays in Weatherfield, we know one thing for sure: it will always be eventful! 

Happy anniversary to both Gail and Helen!
