Betty Driver as Betty Williams

SHE may be 90, but there’s still a twinkle in Betty Driver’s eye.

Corrie’s hotpot queen has been in showbusiness for 80 years and was a leading lady of stage, film and TV long before Weatherfield came calling.

Betty is the subject of tomorrow’s (Sunday) Desert Island Discs at 11:15am on BBC Radio 4, expertly presented by Kirsty Young.

I’ve already listened to the programme and written a story to go online after the embargo expires at midnight tonight.
