Former Corrie actor Mark Eden dies aged 92


Mark Eden, who played Alan Bradley in Coronation Street and was married to co-star Sue Nicholls (Audrey Roberts), has died age 92.   

A statement today said: “We are very sad to announce the death of actor Mark Eden. He died peacefully, in hospital, earlier today, 1 January 2021. Mark had been living with Alzheimer’s disease for some time, and was hospitalised in November.

"Mark, 92, had a long career spanning more than 50 years, including eight years in Coronation Street as character Alan Bradley. He is survived by his wife, Sue, his daughter, Polly, his stepson, Saul, and granddaughter, Emma. We ask that their privacy be respected at this very difficult time.”

MarkEden's run in Coronation Street ended after his character Alan Bradley was killed by a Blackpool tram. Eden later unveiled a plaque at the tram stop where the scene was filmed.

Our condolences go to Sue Nicholls and family.
