Sue Nicholls plays Audrey Roberts

Susan Nicholls (born 23 November 1943 in Walsall, West Midlands) plays Audrey Roberts on Coronation Street.

Susan's father was Lord Harmar-Nicholls, former Conservative MP for Peterborough (1950-1974) and MEP for Greater Manchester South (1979-1984), and a life peer, and she is thus entitled to be addressed as "The Honourable Susan Nicholls".

Sue is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and she first played Marilyn Gates in the soap Crossroads, a role she held from 1964 to 1968.

Sue also played a secretary, Joan Greengross, in the sitcom The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin and its 1996 sequel The Legacy of Reginald Perrin. She also played Nadia Popov in Rentaghost and Mrs Muddle in Pipkins TV series.

However, it is as Audrey that Susan is most well known. For a time her husband, Mark Eden, acted alongside her, playing Alan Bradley.

First appearance on Coronation Street in the UK:
16 April 1979: Audrey Potter descended on Weatherfield for a party to celebrate her daughter Gail's engagement to Brian Tilsley.
