Tinker trouble - meet Beth's famly

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

There was a great tweet from one of our followers last night when Coronation Street aired the arrival of the Tinker women:
If Beth's relatives look familiar, it's because they're seasoned actresses all.

Beth's mum Nancy is played by Kate Fitzgerald, who played Doreen Corkhill in Brookside.

Beth's grandma is played by Juliette Kaplan, who played Pearl in Last of the Summer Wine.

Beth's sister Arlene, and Sinead's mum, is played by Alison Burrows, who played Kathleen McQueen in Hollyoaks.

I couldn't figure out who was the grandma and who was the great grandma!

Also, I thought it was Beth's sister ? She was the only one I could keep straight!

Beth is Sinead's aunt. Beth and Arlene must be sisters. If Arlene was Beth's aunt then Arlene & Sinead would be 1st cousins.

They all reminded me of the opening scene from "the Scottish play" (MacBeth). All they needed was a boiling cauldron.

Yes, Arlene is Beth's sister, not her auntie, and is Sinead's mother. I've corrected the post!! Thanks, guys!
