The one and only Betty

When Betty Driver passed away in October 2011 at the age of 91, she’d played the role of Betty Williams for 42 years and continued to appear regularly on Coronation Street.

For much of her time on the cobbles, Betty was a regular fixture of the Rovers Return. As landlords and landladies came and went, it was Betty’s wry wit, no nonsense attitude and secret hot pot recipe that was the constant heart of the pub.

As the residents farewell Betty onscreen, we’ve taken a look back through the archives and pulled together some of our favourite photos of a true Coronation Street legend.

Join us on a trip down memory lane and raise a toast to the one and only Betty.
