Definitely not returning now. Coronation Street have just confirmed that the actress who played her (Anne Kirkbride) has passed away.New forum new thread for the nations favourite TV show.
Deirdre is not returning. Gutted the show is losing an icon - especially without a proper exit!
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.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.
