Bring back Tricia Hopkins to cheer up Corrie's Gail

Ex-Coronation Street actor Kathy Jones, who played Gail's mate Tricia Hopkins, is one of the many people I follow on twitter.  This week I gave Kathy a #ff on twitter - she's at and in that tweet I said I'd love to see her back on Corrie as Tricia, even just for a flying visit to cheer up Gail.

Kathy replied to say: "Oh thank you so much for the #ff and thank you too for the 'bring Tricia back' comment. x I'm willing if they are. x"

So there you are, Corrie.  Let's have Tricia back to put a smile on Gail's face.   Kathy was recently seen interviewed on The Corrie Years which has been shown over the last few weeks.  You can see her in action in the Gail Potter section starting here at 1'.12" via YouTube.

Kathy Jones' website is here.

Gail needs a fun pal!

I was hoping that Gloria would become a pal to Gail after they had that interaction over Cliff but I guess not.

It's strange that so many of the women don't have friends. You would expect there would be lots of well-established friendships on a street like that. It seems the writers can do teenagers and oldies, but not the middle band. Perhaps they don't have writers who know how women talk to each other.

Gail has been doing a lot of smiling and laughing lately, almost think she may mixing her happy pills with her white wine. I'd much rather see Suzie Birchall come back for a visit.

I'd love to see Suzie Birchall come back too but I think the actress who played her has been unwell for some time with MS, I understand.

Wouldn't it be great if somehow both Suzie and Tricia came back to be with Gail? They could end up as a modern-day Ena, Martha and Minnie sniping away in the Rovers!

What happened to Gail's friendship with Sally? Sally and Rita were also close friends but that has gone to the wayside with Rita favouring sourface Macintyre.
