EXCLUSIVE: Amanda Barrie Talks Soaps & Lockdown - Tonight 8pm

Corrie fans are in for a rare lockdown treat tonight. 

While current episodes of the sixty-year-old soap are being rationed because of social distancing measures putting a stop to filming, an ITV factual programme will be featuring one of Coronation Street's legendary stars. Amanda Barrie gives a hilarious insight into her life in lockdown at 8pm as part of the ITV "Coronavirus Q&A" programme. 

Amanda left a special message for Blog readers recently
The programme will show a clip of Amanda playing Alma alongside characters Ivy Brennan, Alf Roberts and Audrey in a classic scene involving a corner shop confrontation. Alma is shown saying "Pardon me Mrs Brennan, but I'm not sure I like your tone" during the bust-up.

Asked what she is missing in lock down, Amanda jokes, "well not acting! I think I was in Coronation Street about 15 years. I don’t remember being there 15 years because it was like being in lock down really!".
  
The “Celebrity Big Brother” and "Carry On" celeb also shares with us a hilarious lock down story that involves her sunbathing in the nude – and an online shopping delivery driver! She tells the programme "I was stark naked talking to the Amazon man".  Amanda claims to have developed a fringe-cutting "obsession" and has a trim "about every 10 minutes" during lockdown. She now has what she calls her "lock down fringe".  

Coronavirus advice from the ITV News team
ITV’s “Coronavirus Q&A” is hosted by Nina Hossain and Consumer Editor Chris Choi with virus advice from Dr Sarah Jarvis. It’s on tonight from 8pm with Amanda Barrie sharing her stories right at the end of the show.
