Sally’s TV shows, but was she in Benidorm?

No, Sally didn’t appear in the popular ITV sitcom Benidorm.

Her acting CV includes TV shows Still Open All Hours, Cold Call, Mount Pleasant and Scott & Bailey.

She starred in Coronation Street as Shelley Unwin and was in the ITV soap for five years.

Sally joined the cast in 2001 and she left towards the end of 2006.

I’d never say never. I loved it – it was brilliant, it still is brilliant.

In her exit from the show, her character Shelley was due to marry womaniser Charlie Stubbs. However, she found the courage to leave him at the alter.

Shelley got a new job in the Peak District, but she was pregnant with builder Charlie’s child.

To get revenge on him for all his psychological abuse, she told him she was expecting – and that the baby would never know about him.

Charlie got his comeuppance a year later, when his girlfriend Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) killed him when she found out about his affair with Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie).

Speaking on This Morning in 2019, Sally said she wouldn’t rule out returning to the cobbles.

She said on the programme, about a Corrie project Queens of the Street: “It’s basically a load of us that have left and have done quite well, we were talking about our memories of the Street and how that set our careers up.

“So I did this little 10 minute interview, didn’t think anything of it. Then the next minute I’m going back to the Street. I was like, ‘That’s the first I’ve heard!’”

Host Holly Willoughby asked if she would return to Corrie and Sally replied: “Oh gosh, I’d never say never. I loved it – it was brilliant, it still is brilliant.”
