In recent weeks, Audrey Roberts’ (Sue Nicholls) family in Coronation Street has been concerned about her, not knowing that she recently attempted suicide.
Audrey overdosed on pills and ended up in the hospital. She claimed it was an accident, but the doctor’s testing revealed Audrey may have intentionally swallowed a huge amount.
Audrey visited Doctor Gaddas last week after struggling on her own and was prescribed anti-depressants.
Audrey was worried that they wouldn’t have anything to talk about at an afternoon tea with Roy (David Neilson), Ken (William Roache), and Rita (Barbara Knox) this evening.
Audrey and her friends could talk for hours and hours, just as Shona (Julia Goulding) claimed they could.
The group was having fun hanging out and initially the topic of conversation was lighthearted. They found it amusing to overhear Claudia (Rula Lenska) and her companion returning.
Audrey was at ease enough to tell her companions that three weeks prior, she attempted suicide when Claudia arrived at the table.
It was an intense and touching aftermath. When Audrey’s friends learned that she had gone through such a difficult time alone, they were heartbroken and reminded her that she still has a lot to give the world.
While Audrey is unable to summon the guts to tell her family what occurred, she thought Audrey’s friends were rooting for her.
and agreed to meet up and repeat the experience as they grinned and laughed for the remainder of the afternoon.
Audrey informed Nick (Ben Price) that she had ultimately decided to reopen the salon, and that it was now time to look to the future. She went into her favorite company, got a drink of water, and sat down to take her medication. As she accepted the medication, Audrey thanked her nosy neighbor, knowing that things would have been quite different if she hadn’t phoned.
Yes, let’s toast Nosy Nicky.
