Ann's just like Deidrie - part of a soap opera.
But I hear that among the Sky Blues hierarchy the Labour stalwart is known as Deidre Barlow.
On the face of it there is a passing resemblance to the Corrie time-server and some say Cov Kid Ann sounds a little like Oldham-born actress Anne Kirkbride.
Deidre can sound a tad strident - and who could blame her after the deadbeats she's been landed with in the Street (married four times, twice to Ken Barlow)? Surely no-one is suggesting Ann, who only took over in Earl Street as council leader in May, inherited a similar cast? No, the similarity can only be that our Ann is also playing a bit part in a soap opera - The Ricoh's Return - that like the Street should have ended long ago.
WHO'S WHO: Ann Lucas and Anne Kirkbride.
