Alf Roberts Voted Favourite Corner Shop Owner
Well, this news is slightly out-of-date, in fact it happened in May, but we're finally doing some updates here and, as you know, being a retro Coronation Street blog, our updates usually concern the past, and this one is no different!
We were delighted to discover that Alf Roberts was voted by Coronation Street Blog readers as their favourite Corner Shop owner (read all about it here). Alf, played by Bryan Mosley, inherited the Corner Shop when his wife Renee was tragically killed in a road accident in the summer of 1980, and from then on was wedded to it - even after he married Audrey Potter in 1985! We sang Alf's praises in 2010 on this blog (here) and we're so happy that his time as owner of the Corner Shop is so fondly remembered by Coronation Street Blog fans too.
Here's to the memory of Alf, and Bryan Mosley - the actor who brought him to life on-screen.
