DO ACTOR GHOSTS HAUNT THE CORRIE SET?
Of late, Audrey has supposedly been receiving messages from ‘the other side’ via psychic Rosemary – but are there any haunting the old Corrie set? ‘I haven’t seen any…’ she says, but admits that she does indeed feel the presence of the soap’s former stars. ‘All the actors here now are lovely, but I’m constantly thinking of all the people who’ve lived behind those doors. I can kind of still see the others.’
Watching repeats from 30 years ago (currently shown on ITV3) adds to that. ‘It’s like a little dream with all those people,’ says Sue of episodes featuring classic characters like Jack and Vera Duckworth, Bet and Alec Gilroy, Deirdre Barlow and Percy Sugden.
‘Sadly, many aren’t with us any more. It brings back lots of memories. I feel a lot of warmth watching. They were wonderful actors… But how lovely they can go on because it’s being shown again! Isn’t that wonderful, to keep their names alive?’
