The truth about Deirdre Barlow's belt

Our blogger Seapenguin asked here if anyone knew how old Deirdre Barlow's chain belt was.

Well, while it's obviously not the very same belt in this picture, we can clearly see that our Deirdre has always been fond of a belted chain. This picture is taken from a 1970s episode in which the belt featured in a storyline involving little baby Tracy and feckless husband Ray.

1973? Mistake there. It was either 1977 or 1978. Cos Tracy wasn't born until 1977 and Ray left in 1978.

Ah, but it was fashionable in the 70s!

I think that it's the most unflattering thing she owns! Who would put attention to right underneath a "gut" let's say. Oh, Dede.

Good find! i do think she put the belt away for awhile in the 80s and 90s especially when she was a councillor. It was all jackets and skirts and blouses for awhile.

It looks very similar to the one she wears now - except she's added a few more links to it. Haven't we all ;)

I've been waiting ages to use that picture! Glad it got an airing at last ;-)

"little baby Tracy and feckless husband Ray"? We know Tracy's been a little lax on the morals in recent years but we didn't think she married Ray when she was a baby!
