Remembering Anne

Look back at some of Anne Kirkbride's memorable moments as the irreplaceable Deirdre Barlow.

She will be sorely missed.

Deirdre's First Appearance

We first met Deirdre on the 20th November 1972.

Deirdre, Ken and Mike

The 1983 love triangle was one of Deirdre's defining storylines.

The Weatherfield One

Deirdre was wrongfully imprisoned in 1998 causing a huge outcry in the media to 'Free the Weatherfield One'.

Deirdre and Blanche

Deirdre had a tempestuous relationship with her acerbic mother Blanche.

Ken and Deirdre

Ken and Deirdre were one of the great romances of our generation (most of the time).

The AA Meeting

The Barlow's rallied together to support alcoholic Peter at his first AA meeting.

Deirdre and Mike Baldwin

Mike Baldwin, the other man in Deirdre's life.

The Lorry Crash

In 1979 baby Tracy was feared dead, after a lorry crashed into the Rovers.

Deirdre's Trifle

Deirdre struggled with the stress of Peter's wrongful imprisonment in 2014. "Jelly shouldn't run - it should wobble!"

Ken and Deirdre's Bedtime Stories

2011 saw Ken and Deirdre star in their own spin-off series.

"Ken, did you remember to take the bins out?"

Anne Kirkbride

It is with great sadness that David Beckett has confirmed tonight that his beloved wife and Coronation Street actress Anne Kirkbride has passed away peacefully in a Manchester hospital after a short illness.

David and the programme's cast and crew are heartbroken and deeply saddened at the loss of Anne who has been a Coronation Street icon for 44 years.

"There are no words to describe the sense of grief we feel at Anne's passing," said Executive Producer Kieran Roberts. "We know only too acutely how much Anne meant to the millions of people who watched her create the legendary character of Deirdre Barlow.

"She will be greatly missed by the Coronation Street team who share happy memories of working with her. We feel blessed and honoured to have known her. Our thoughts are with David and their family."

ITV Director of Television Peter Fincham echoed Kieran's thoughts.

"Anne has been a truly loyal servant to Coronation Street since joining the programme in the early 1970s. She created a unique and unforgettable character in Deirdre Barlow and she'll be greatly missed on and off screen.

"Our sincerest condolences to Anne's husband David and her family at this very sad time."

Coronation Street’s creator Tony Warren captured the feelings of all who knew Anne:

“Anne was very easy to love. Her talent over the years made a massive contribution to Coronation Street.”

William Roache who played Anne’s onscreen husband Ken Barlow said:

“I feel Anne’s loss so personally having worked closely with her for over 40 years. She was such a loving and vibrant person. You always knew she was there because her laugh was never far away.

"She was an impeccable performer with superb comedy timing and an immense gift for really heightened drama. We had some rows over the years as Ken and Deirdre and it was wonderful to play those scenes opposite her. Coronation Street has lost one of its iconic characters and Anne will be greatly missed.”

Anne is survived by her husband, David, her brother John, and his family.

David has appealed to the media to respect his privacy and that of Anne’s family at this very sad and distressing time.

Anne passed away on Monday evening (19 January) aged 60.
