Deirdre : A Life on Coronation Street Hardback
by Glenda Young
A walk down the cobbles with one of Coronation Street's best loved characters.
From her first appearance in 1972, Deirdre Barlow (nee Hunt) went on to become one of the street's most iconic stars and been at the centre of some of its most explosive storylines; including her affair with Mike Baldwin, her imprisonment for fraud which prompted the then Prime Minister, Tony Blair, to raise her case in the Commons and her relationship with daughter Tracy, a woman who has literally gotten away with murder. Deirdre: A Life on the Street is a tribute to one of the most recognised and loved characters on television.
Looking back at her three husbands, four weddings and countless pairs of specs, it features exclusive photographs as well as a look at Deirdre's four decades on Britain's most famous street.
It's packed full of quotes including many from Deirdre's acid tongued mother Blanche, reminisces and a look at some of Deirdre's most memorable moments.
