I don't really get why it's an issue - if she auditioned and they thought she could play a 14 year old in that then what does it matter what her real age is? Not sure if they've dropped her for fibbing or being too old...

Would've been nice to say I knew someone in Corrie. Never mind.

Corrie has not been great recently. The bloke playing Tony is unspeakably shit. Can't stand watching it when he's on. Also bored shitless of the David-Kylie-Max crap. Just get rid now, we're all bored.

Definitely not returning now. Coronation Street have just confirmed that the actress who played her (Anne Kirkbride) has passed away.

Very sad news about Anne Kirkbride.

Used to enjoy watching Corrie when I was younger. It was quite sad, really! John Stape, what a hero.

Aye thats a huge shock about that Deirdre woman; the old dear is in mourning about that one! Can't believe she was only 60 as well, she looked older.

They must have known her real age. I reckon they are trying to publicly save face and probably offered her a leading role in a few Granada productions if she keeps quiet.

Really sad news about Anne Kirkbride. As someone who remembers Deirdre as the weatherfield one nearly 20 years it has shocked me.

There are certain characters who are irreplaceable, Deirdre definitely falls into that category. Shit news.

Deirdre and Blanche were the best comedy duo in any soap. Absolutley brilliant.

I will miss Deirdre trying to make pottery or cook some strange dish :(.

Surely a teenage daughter has to be annoying , it's there job! Mind you the actress is way too old for the part , supposed to be 14 isn't she?

Your not paying attention are you, it's Tony pretending to be a Pub chain so he can have his wife and his girlfriend working together ...... He really hasn't thought that one through has he ?
