Janet Dibley joins Coronation Street


Janet Dibley is joining Coronation Street. I know the actress best for her role as Elaine in the 1980s ITV sitcom The Two of Us where she starred alongside Nicholas Lyndhurst.

Janet has appeared in The Bill, Casualty, Eastenders, Fat Friends, The Chase, Waking the Dead, Gold, and The Gingerbread Girl.  She might be best known to soap fans as Lorna Cartwright in EastEnders.


The tabloids are reporting today that Janet will play a headteacher called Melinda, at Bessie Street school, where Brian works.

Mr Curry Sauce told the Daily Star: “This is a coup for producers. Janet was a big favourite on EastEnders. But now she’ll be spicing things up at Corrie.”

See who else is joining, leaving or returning to the show.

Why oh why are they bringing in new characters? There are so many current characters that we rarely see for weeks on end. For example, Gary, Craig, Bethany I could go on and on. I just don't get it.
While I'm on a rant, has anyone warmed up to Evelyn? I haven't at all, I find her incredibly annoying.

Not a fan I have to say. Never watch EE but didn't like her much in The Two of Us.

I hope that this has something to do with that tyrant Phil and the Brian storyline. It would be great if they could tackle this adult bullying at work issue head-on. It sure does happen a lot.
