Sue Nicholls on Audrey's fling with Ken

There's an absolutely brilliant interview in today's Mirror with Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey Roberts in Coronation Street.

Sue, and Audrey, are in the Corrie spotlight at the moment with Audrey's friendship with Ken developing into something more. Or will it?

Sue, also known by her title of the Honourable Susan Frances Harmar-Nicholls, is married to actor Mark Eden, who played Alan Bradley on Corrie.  In the interview she talks about married life to Mark and her on-screen relationship with Ken Barlow and real-life friendship with William Roache.

She also talks about the death of co-star Anne Kirkbride who played Deirdre. She says: “The storyline had to change because of the circumstances that hit us all so badly – because of the sadness of dear Annie. Obviously that meant Deirdre wasn’t going to be around, so what they’d thought of had to go on hold.”

What does Sue think Anne would make of Audrey getting together with Ken? “I don’t know really,” she ponders. “She was so professional. Annie just took whatever stories happened. She’ll ­probably say, ‘Yeah, go on girl. Love you...’”

She adds: “Everybody loved Annie, it was always a joy to be with her. But you’ve got to kind of think of the story – and I don’t mean forget Annie. It’s difficult because she was such a huge, huge character and so important. It’s being delicately done.”

It's a lovely read and it's here.
