Killer Corrie Quotes (No.2) - Albert Tatlock on Annie Walker

Next Monday sees a great tram crash in Coronation Street. It sets the scene for a dramatic week of deaths, a wedding and a birth - just a normal week in suburban Manchester then!

It will culminate with the soap celebrating its 50th birthday next Thursday, 9th December with a live 1 hour episode.

To pay tribute to the world's longest current runnning soap, I'm blogging a quote a day from Corrie's past up until the big day.

'Uncle' Albert Tatlock (Ken Barlow's uncle through marriage) was the old grouch on the street and when his real-life alter-ego Jack Howarth passed away in 1984, so did Albert. The year before, 1983, saw the introduction of Percy Sugden who would fill Albert's grumpy old shoes perfectly.

Annie Walker was the long-time matriach of the Rovers Return who didn't suffer fools gladly.

So, quote No.2...

"Annie Walker'd attend her own funeral if God let 'er" - Albert Tatlock.
