Remembering Coronation Street's Alf Roberts

What a lovely bit of dialogue last night on Coronation Street when Alf Roberts got a mention from Audrey. He liked her ankles and her clavicle, apparently!

Anyway, Alf was a real gent of the Street.  He was married to Renee and they ran the corner shop.

After Renee's death, Alf continued running the corner shop with shop assistant Deirdre. She stood against him - and won his seat - in the local election to become independent councillor.

But it was in his role as Mayor of Weatherfield that we'll remember Alf fondly.  Audrey also has memories of being married to the Mayor and all the perks it brought - not least having a fling with Alf's chauffeur!

Alf passed away on New Year's Day 1999. He was found slumped in a chair after Gail's New Year's party.

Gone, but never forgotten!

Brian Mosley,who played Alf, also starred in the seminal film Get Carter with Michael Caine.
