Happy Birthday to Audrey Roberts - 75 today

It's Audrey's birthday today on Coronation Street.  And although Gail said earlier this week that "we gloss over that bit" when Michael asked her how old Audrey is this year, we can reveal that Audrey will turn 75.

Both Corriepedia and list Audrey's birth date as 23 July 1940 which makes Audrey 75 years old today.

Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey, was first seen on screen in April 1979 and her first scene was a belter. It was on Youtube - but it's been taken offline, sadly. It shows Audrey Potter (as she was called back then) in her dressing gown enjoying a fag and a chat with Elsie Tanner.
"So, Gail tells me you've been divorced?" asks Audrey, nosy as ever.
"Only twice," replies Elsie.

In regerence to a previous blog, the 'Audrey hmmm noise' is a Corrie icon

Don't forget that Sue Nicholls is only 71 and only 7 years older than Helen Worth (Gail)!

I saw this video sometime ago. She must have seen it since she very rarely makes the 'hmm' sounds anymore.
