Newspaper clipping from 1983 - and Gail Tilsley is about to take her driving test:
Fingers will be crossed in Wednesday's Coronation Street on ITV at 7.30 that Gail Tilsley passes her driving test. As Gail (Helen Worth) tells husband Brian (Christopher Quinten) - who is a bit short of cash: "Think of the difference! You'll make more money and there'll be no need to get rid of the garage!" Oh, he's in there thinking, Gail.
Sadly, Gail failed her driving test.
Note that the BARB TV ratings listed below the Gail article show that Coronation Street was at Number 1 and Number 2 for the week ending 28 August, and at Numbers 3, 4 and 6 that other soap, Crossroads was bringing its "everyday" tale of motel folk into the homes of millions.
I loved Crossroads!
