Amanda Barrie

Amanda Barrie started her career as a dancer in the West End before breaking into television.

Her first forays on the small screen was hostessing with Hughie Green on 'Double Your Money', and dancing on the first 'Morecombe and Wise' show.

She moved into film, eventually starring as Cleopatra in the 'Carry On' film 'Carry On Cabby' in 1964. Her other movie credits include 'I've Gotta Horse' (1965) with Billy Fury, and the Walt Disney adventure 'One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing' (1975).

In the early '70s, Amanda worked as a presenter on the children's series 'Hickory House', and starred in BBC productions of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'The Country Wife'.

She made her first appearance as Alma Sedgewick in 'Coronation Street' in 1981, and became a regular with the programme eight years later, where she remained until 2001.

After leaving 'Coronation Street', Barrie returned the stage, and became a TV regular again as con woman Bev Tull in the popular ITV prison drama 'Bad Girls', where she appeared over four consecutive series from 2003 to 2006.

In recent years, Amanda has guested in episodes of TV's 'Casualty' and 'Doctors', and in 2015 played Psychic Sue in two episodes of the hit ITV comedy 'Benidorm'.
