Coronation Street star Anne Kirkbride, who played the character Deirdre Barlow in the long-running television soap, has died aged 60 after a short illness. In the 1980s one of the soap's most famous storylines; the love triangle between Deirdre, her husband, Ken Barlow and lover Mike Baldwin, hinged on whether she would stay with Ken. She was married four times in the programme, twice to Ken. The popularity of her character was demonstrated when a real-life campaign was launched to free Deirdre when a storyline saw the character jailed in 1998 after being duped into a mortgage fraud by fiancé Jon Lindsay. The campaign was even backed by Prime Minister Tony Blair.
