Soap icon Julie Goodyear, MBE is back in full Bet Lynch mode on ITV tonight when she makes a guest appearance on ITV’s The Big Quiz: Coronation Street v Emmerdale.


Goodyear – who last appeared on Corrie in 2003 – gets a standing ovation from both actors and audience members as she emerges from a mock-up of the doors of the Rovers Return in Bet’s trademark leopard-skin coat.

The actress will be seen taking part in a round of the quiz that sees current Coronation Street stars Jack P Shepherd (David) and Julia Goulding (Shona) left blindfolded and having to guess her identity.
