Do You Recognise this Coronation Street Nurse?

Today is International Nurse's Day and I've just posted some nurse-related Coronation Steret pictures to our twitter account here.

One of the pictures I've posted was Nurse Martin Platt but then it was pointed out to me that the female nurse sitting with him is none other than a young Lisa George, who currently plays Beth Sutherland in Corrie!

Lisa has been in Coronation Street twice before her role as Beth Tinker (now Sutherland).

She first appeared, as in the picture above, as an unnamed nurse colleague of Martin Platt in September 1997.

And she appeared again for six episodes as a Family Liaison Officer working on the investigation of Tommy Harris's murder between March and April 2005.

The actress who plays Eileen also played a nurse at one time as well. I've been watching old episodes on youtube and have enjoyed spotting actors who've had major roles appearing in bit parts.
Great eye!

She looks so different than 'Aunty Beth' that I wouldn't have recognized her!

That's because, like most of us, she's put weight on in the last 20 years :-)

When Beth first arrived on the Street, she was supposed to have had a fling with Steve McDonald 20-odd years ago. It seemed unlikely (no disrespect!)but quite believable looking at the photo.
