Coming soon... here's a very big-haired Liz McDonald - except it isn't. This is Beverley Callard in her first soap role - as Angie Richards, chip shop cashier of Emmerdale Farm in 1983. Angie has just had a wonderful (!) evening out with Jackie Merrick (Ian Sharrock) in The Woolpack.
Beverley debuted in Coronation Street in 1989, and in those days Liz was very much an '80s fashion victim - just as Angie was in '83!For years in the 1990s, lovely Liz's fashion sense strayed towards the 1980s, but these days her style is far more eclectic - bearing traces of the '60s, 70s and '80s, and often being positively indescribable! If it's bad taste, Liz will wear it!
In 1983, Angie Richards was into pixie boots, smart jackets with noticeable shoulders and skin tight, colourful trousers. We'll be taking a look at Beverley's early '80s soap debut in 2009. Angie liked Jackie, but the trouble was there nothing to do and nowhere to be alone together. The relationship was not to last...
We have the details - please stay tuned!
