Sue Nicholls doesn’t want Audrey to become an alcoholic
Actress Sue Nicholls previously revealed how she refused to let bosses turn Audrey into a lonely alcoholic.
“There was something pitched to me years ago that the storyline could be that Audrey was at home and going home drinking a lot – a bit true to life actually,” she said.
“Gail and the family would ask if she was lonely. I said I didn’t agree,” Sue added.
“I asked: ‘Why do you think somebody, of whatever age I was, that just because she works in the salon and goes home that she’s lonely and needs to drink? Not necessarily.’
“To be honest I can’t get wait to get home and plonk on the sofa, and yes pour the rosé, but it’s not because I’m depressed it’s because: ‘How wonderful, they’re all gone!’
“I tried to pitch it back to them that I didn’t want to play a drunk forlorn little thing.
“It is nice that they went the other way.”
But is that all set to change?
Coronation Street usually airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
