Edna Emmerdale in Keeping Up Appearances
 
oh my, just turned on uktv drama on sky and "keeping up appearances" is on. A very tarty relative is being played by shirley stelfox (Emmerdales Edna Birch) its wonderful to see her play a completely different role, without a hat on !!!!

Yes, Shirley Stelfox played Rose in the 1st series of KUA, until Mary Millar took over the role in Series 2, who sadly died of cancer in 1998.

Shirly Stelfox only played Rose the tarty sister in series 1.

it is weird to see sitcom stars in the soaps.
Another is Patrick Trueman in The Thin Blue Line. (and I believe that Amber's mother from Corrie was on that too.)
or Wendy Richard on of course Are you Being Served.

You are ending up seeing a few people from classic sitcoms on the Soaps in bit parts or in regular roles
