Coronation Street star Julie Goodyear pays tribute to the late Tony Warren

Corrie favourite Julie Goodyear – best known for her role as Rovers Return barmaid Bet Lynch – has paid tribute to the late Tony Warren.

The 73-year-old said they “cried together” and “laughed together” and that she felt “very proud” of the man who created ITV’s long-running soap.

In a statement, she spoke with warmth about the Lancashire-born TV star.

“Tony Warren and I have been close friends for 50 years and I have felt very privileged to have him in my life,” she said.

“We cried together and we laughed together. We shared exactly the same outrageously camp sense of humour and that got us through so many of the tough times that can happen in life. But the good times that we shared far outnumber the tough times.”
