Betty Driver R.I.P
R.I.P. indeed to Betty Driver [1920-2011], who was stll acting in England's longest running soap CORONATION STREET into her 90s. The Rovers won't be the same without Betty's hotpot!
Betty had been a successful singer before being asked to join a new soap back in 1969! and quickly established her character as one of the more lovable in "continuing dramas".
