Top 50 Coronation Street Characters

30. Audrey Roberts

Played by Sue Nicholls for thirty years, Audrey was brought in as the mother of Gail Potter. Embarrassing Gail, she flirted with son in law Brian and although in her 40s, she believed she was still young. She finally found stability in grocer Alf Roberts, who she married in 1985 – establishing the strongest partnerships in the soap’s history. They were married for 13 years, before Alf died of a stroke at Gail’s house on New Year’s Eve. Between 1989 and 2001, Audrey’s best friend was Alma Baldwin and they were known for being gadabouts. After 12 years, the friendship ended when Alma died of cancer. In 2002, Audrey though
t she was going senile, but it was actually son in law Richard Hillman who was trying to kill her – and making her more fragile by convincing her that she had amnesia. She luckily escaped his clutches. Since her Alfeh’s passing, the hairdresser has been wooed by many gentlemen that include Fred Elliott, Archie Shuttleworth, Keith Appleyard and Bill Webster, but none have matched up to Alfeh in her eyes.

Should Audrey be at 30? Or should she be in the 33rd position like in Corrieblog's poll? Leave comments!
