From watch­ing out for her Scouse brood in Brook­side to of­fer­ing tea and sym­pa­thy to her daugh­ter in Coro­na­tion Street

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

When your gam­bling ad­dict of a hus­band has left you in debt and em­barked on an af­fair with your friend, you could do with the re­as­sur­ing pres­ence of your mother. As luck would have it, that is ex­actly what hap­pens in Coro­na­tion Street in the com­ing weeks, when put-upon land­lady Stella wel­comes her mum Glo­ria back into her life. But when Stella dis­cov­ers that Glo­ria – who has been run­ning a bar in Spain – is also har­bour­ing se­crets, how long will the happy fam­ily re­union last? Ac­tress Sue has made a ca­reer out of play­ing some of the small screen’s most trea­sured ma­tri­archs, from Sheila Grant in Brook­side to Bar­bara in The Royle Fam­ily.
