A Brief History Of Sharon Bentley
In case you missed it: Sharon Bentley (played by Tracie Bennett) is making a comeback after 22 years!
Struggling to cast your mind back that far? Never fear, we've summed up Sharon's most notable storylines from her time on the cobbles...
Tracie Bennett made 173 appearances as Sharon in 1982, 1983-84, and 1999, ruffling more than a few feathers along the way. She made a play for Brian Tilsley, and lied to Gail that they were having an affair, before leaving under a cloud! Returning briefly in 1983, she caught the eye of Curly Watts but dumped him for his mate Terry Duckworth.
In 1999, she came back to invite Rita to her wedding to Ian Bentley, who she subsequently dumped at the alter - exposing his affair with Natalie Barnes.
Happy that Sharon decided to stay around after the wedding fiasco, Rita offered Sharon a job at The Kabin. Sharon happily accepted, although she soon clashed with Rita's assistant Leanne Battersby. Much to Leanne's horror, and that of few of Rita's other friends, Rita offered The Kabin to Sharon as a birthday gift. Rita admitted to Sharon that she offered her the business as she was lonely.
After an ill-fated romance with Danny Hargreaves and a suicide attempt, Sharon got back in touch with ex fiance Ian and much to Rita’s dismay she put the Kabin up for sale to purchase a house with Ian in Bolton. Rita bought the Kabin back off Sharon and sent her packing.
So there you have it... Sharon's time on the cobbles was a rollercoaster, so make sure you stay tuned in to see what's in store for her return!
