Fantastic news just in for all coronation Street fans and in particular fans of Deirdre Barlow. The actress, played by Anne Kirkbride quickly earned a reputation for having a scratchy voice and rather large glasses. What also emerged was the fact that she is also one of the worst actresses ever to grace the screen!
Her greatest skill is her facial expressions. Deirdre's character has over the years been through the mill and been through the whole spectrum of emotional turmoil, but her face is always the same.
Veteran writers Terry Coronation and Stan Street said of their star pupil,'We used to laugh when it was time for Deirdre to pull a traumatic face. Or a happy one. Or an excited one. Or a scared one. Any face at all really. They were all the same. She's crap. But that's Deirdre. We're just chuffed that she's been awarded The Lifetime Achievement Award For Being Rubbish For So Long. She deserves it. '
