femmefan1946 October 26, 2016 Share October 26, 2016 For a good idea of normal looking people on television, you don't have to look much further than the cast of Coronation Street, which has been running on ITV in Britain since 1960. The actors Helen Worth, Barbara Knox, and Sue Nicholls are none of them classic beauties, to say the least, and yet in the soap opera have all had multiple husbands and lovers, when past 50 or even 60. Julie Goodyear played Bette Lynch as the hottest sexpot on the Street for decades. Again, Google their images. The show also had a transwoman character who was married to a straight male character, by an Anglican priest, before same sex civil marriages were available in Britain. She was played by a woman. And a dowdier pair you never saw. More transgressive, in my opinion, than Rocky Horror Picture Show. 2 Link to comment
