Roy Hudd reveals behind-the-scenes jokes as Corrie's undertaker

There's a wonderful radio interview with Roy Hudd where he talks about being Coronation Street's undertaker, Archie Shuttleworth. 

Roy was interviewed on BBC Radio 4 by Sandi Toksvig. The Corrie snippet is only just over two minutes long and is definitely worth listening to.

Roy talks about Archie's catchphrase and how the character was created by writer Daran Little.  He also reveals what happened when Archie had to bury Fred Elliot the butcher, I say the butcher.

Have a little listen to it here.

Oh I loved Roy Hudd as Archie Shuttleworth, he had that Corrie charisma. Loved all the scene's with Audrey and him, when she was convincing him of Richard Hillman's devious plans to see her off. He was also gold with Blanche too. Some character's just gel and he was one of them!
