Lynne Perrie


Lynne Perrie (7 April 1931 - 24 March 2006) was a Yorkshire based actress and singer. Known as ''Little Miss Dynamite'', due to her vibrant personality, Perrie performed her cabaret act in clubs all around Britain, and in France, Germany, South Africa and the United States throughout the 1960s. In 1964, she appeared as a regular support act for the Beatles, and appeared on the same bill as other emerging stars like Sacha Distel and the Rolling Stones. She also performed eight times at London's Royal Albert Hall. On television, she made appearances on various television variety programmes, including ITV's ''Stars and Garters''. In 1970, she won critical acclaim for her debut acting role as the neglectful mother in Ken Loach's award-winning film ''Kes''. This led to various television roles, including Mrs. Petty in the ITV comedy series ''Queenie's Castle'' (1970-1972), starring Diana Dors. Perrie is best remembered for playing Ivy Tilsley (later Brennan) in the UK's flagship soap opera ''Coronation Street'', in which she appeared from 1971-1994. After she left the ''Street'', Perrie returned to the stage with a new cabaret act and published her best-selling autobiography ''Secrets Of The Street'', appearing on many popular television chat shows to promote it.
