Amanda Barrie

Regular readers will know I'm a Coronation Street fan. But although I was given a copy of Amanda Barrie's autobiography when it was released a couple of years ago, I'd never bothered to read it. Anyway, prompted by a comment on Corrieblog, I got the book down from the shelves and read it, almost in one sitting. It was wonderful. A really lovely, cuddle-up and get cosy kind of book to read. I was in tears at the end. I recommend it highly.

Nora - yet again we synchronise. Wasn't it marvellous?
I've started on Betty's now.
What a woman!

Like the picture - she looks very alluring in that hat. I loved her in Carry on Cabby - there's a great scene when she sits on top of one of the taxis and does her lipstick.

I heard rumours she was a dyke in real life. Is this true?

In her autobiography she does say she's swung both ways and goes more for the personality than gender. She's been married to a fella and had relationships with women. The Carry on Cleo shot is such a wonderful picture, isn't it?

Interesting! I like a versatile person. Thanks for the clarification, Nora.

Yes she looks very innocent and cheeky in that shot. And what a hat!
