Coronation Street (EP 1143 ITV 3 Jan 1972, Mollie Sugden, David Davies)



Coronation Street ITV 1972

In the first Coronation Street of 1972 Elsie has to face up to the gossip mongers at the rover revealing to Ken that Alan has left her, whilst Annie meets her prince in the shape of a dance invite from Lt Cmdr Gerald Prince.

Bet has been having a fling with footballer Eddie but in this episode he reveals that he is being transferred to Torquay United. He wants Bet to go with him but she makes it clear she won’t be.

So many of the great names of the show present and correct in this one. Mollie Sudgen plays Nellie Harvey who in this episode is more than put out that Annie is after Gerald Prince – she’s rather keen on him herself. She made occasional appearances as Nellie between 1965 and 1976.
