Madge Hindle played Renee Bradshaw in Coronation Street for four years in the late 1970s. The character was brought in by producer Bill Podmore to create an atmosphere of gossip in the local corner shop. She proved very popular and later married Street stalwart Alf Roberts (played by Bryan Mosley). To the anger of fans, the character was killed off in 1980. Here Madge recalls the role and candidly conveys some fabulous anecdotes about both Coronation Street and the comedy Nearest and Dearest in which she also starred. Madge is speaking to MIM's Ashley Byrne....
