The importance of being Hayley

There's a beautiful tribute to Hayley Cropper in the Guardian.  The article is about how Hayley, having been brought into Coronation Street as a quirky love interest for an even quirkier Roy, has turned into one of the best-loved characters in the world of soap.  And oh boy, will she be missed when she's gone.

You may also wish to read our exclusive interview with the the real-life woman who worked with and advised Corrie on the character of transsexual Hayley. Working with Press for Change, the lobbying and educational organisation, which campaigns to achieve equal civil rights and liberties for all transsexual people in the UK, she’s been the advisor to Coronation Street since April 1998, three months after Hayley first appeared on screen.

What a thoroughly nice article - no more than Hayley deserves, mind you.
