Corrie Stalwart - Deirdre Barlow

When thinking about Deirdre, what comes into the mind is the huge glasses she wore for nearly 30 years. As well as her glasses, she is also known for her many liaisons with the men of Coronation Street. After failing to lure Alan Howard from wife Elsie, Deirdre caught the eye of Billy Walker. They were due to marry, but Billy fled to Jersey. Soon enough, Deirdre was dating her boss Ray Langton and they married in 1975. During their three year marriage, Deirdre gave birth to daughter Tracy (who’s currently in jail for murder). Ray left Deirdre in 1978 and she found comfort in Ken Barlow, who she married in 1981. Ken adopted Tracy. In 1983, Deirdre had a headline affair with Mike Baldwin. When Ken confronted her, they rowed but he forgave her. They divorced in 1989 after Ken’s affair with Wendy Crozier. Five years later, Deirdre met and married Moroccan Samir Rachid. Their marriage lasted a few months, when Samir was stabbed to death. A few years later, Deirdre met Jon Lindsay who was responsible for her to be imprisoned. She was later released and found comfort again in ex Ken. After many years, Deirdre remarried Ken in 2005, to everyone’s delight. Over the years, Deirdre has worked at the builder’s yard, the corner shop and the council.
