Jenny Bradley in a wig has taken twitter by storm. It even has its own twitter account - @JennyBradleyWig. It's started me off thinking about other Coronation Street characters who have worn wigs in the show.
I don't mean theatrical wigs for parts in pantos and plays, shows and such-like when dressing up is called for, but rather wig / toupee / hair-piece wearing as part of the character's storyline.
Norris once donned a wig. Mary bought it for him for his 70th birthday in 2010. However, he didn't wear it, he only briefly tried it on in the Rovers' toilets.
Coronation Street's most famous wig wearer was Reg Holdsworth. Mother-in-law Maud was thrilled when he burned his wig in an act of frustration.
wig to pose as "Carole Munro"
podcasters at Conversation Street, here's Jack Duckworth in a wig as Ida Fagg for the ladies bowls team.
If you can think of any more characters whose wigs played an important part of their time on the show, do please leave a comment and we'll add them in.
