Anne Kirkbride ( Coronation Street Star Deidre.)

  1. BornJune 21, 1954, Oldham
  2. DiedJanuary 19, 2015, Manchester

Coronation Street legend Anne Kirkbride dies after losing battle with cancer, aged 60

This was sad and shocking news to many of her fans not least me.  She has been appearing in Corrie ( Coronation Street ) for the last 4o years. 

THE much-loved actress had kept her illness a closely guarded secret, with fans told only that she was on extended leave from her role as Deirdre Barlow.

What is coronation Street some of you might be asking?
 Coronation Street (also known as Corrie) is a British soap opera made by Granada Television and shown on ITV since 1960. The programme centres on Coronation Street in Weatherfield, a fictional town based on Salford, its terraced houses, café, corner shop, newsagents, textile factory and The Rovers Return pub.
That is only a very brief outline,  even Prince Charles has appeared on screen. The residents of Coronation Street are ordinary, working-class folk, and the show follows them through regular social and family interactions -- with the occasional soap-worthy murder plot thrown in for good measure.

one particular scene involved a Trifle. It was probably one of the last scenes she was seen in.
I think every woman in the country could relate to it!!!! 
Xmas time and to add to all the rest of the stress of the day, the Trifle dosnt set properly!!!
This is a just the worst thing that could happen!!!! Deidre sobs that trifles are not runny....inevitably the trifle ends up on the wallpaper!!!!    much to the shock of all her guests

She will be sadly missed.
There were so many beautiful tributes from her co stars and also many other stars.
Filming was cancelled following her death.

The impact this has on every day peoples lives is bazarre to say the least....its like a part of us has died too.
It reminds us we are not mortal and we must not take for granted each and every day that we are given.

R.I.P. Anne Kirkbride
