Behind the Scenes at Coronation Street
Fans of the ITV show have been left stunned by the age difference between the on-screen mother and daughter.
Corrie fans are just discovering the real-life age gap between actresses Sue Nichols and Helen Worth, who play Audrey and Gail in the show.
The pair - who are mother and daughter in the ITV show - actually only have seven years between them in real life.
Sue is 78 and Helen 71, and viewers have been taken to Twitter to share their shock at the news.
One person wrote: "Just checked, in real life Audrey is 78 and Gail is 71!"
Another commented: "They both look amazing!", while a third wrote: "They both look great for their age!"
The actresses joined Corrie in the 1970s, and have proved hugely popular characters ever since.
Audrey's drinking has become a key storyline in the soap, with recent episodes seeing her hospitalised after a nasty fall while drunk.
Gail was left concerned about Audrey suggested she celebrate her recovery in the Rovers pub.
Later that week, Audrey called a family meeting to tell her children that she was planning to update her will to leave all her money to WARTS, the Weatherfield Association of Retail Traders, in memory of Alfie.
