Who plays Glenda Shuttleworth in Coronation Street?
Glenda Shuttleworth is portrayed by West End actress Jodie Prenger in Coronation Street.
She previously took first place in the 2008 season of the BBC reality series I’d Do Anything and played Nancy in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Oliver! The Musical.
“My family is from Manchester, all from Moss Side, and they used to have a laundrette and a cafe shop. My Nan’s brother used to deliver Pat Phoenix’s groceries,” the 43-year-old said to the Manchester Evening News after being cast in Corrie.
“My nan, Terry Doyle, she worshipped Elsie Tanner,” she continued.
“I believe it is truly an honor to be a part of a constitution and a family when you have loved something for such a long time. It has truly felt like that since entering. It’s just a big, functioning, beautiful family, and it means the world to me.”
Added her: “Driving up to the ITV gates on my first day made me feel like I was at MGM Studios. It was incredible. Disney World wasn’t something I required. I had already arrived.”
What other roles has Jodie Prenger held?
She had a very successful theater career before getting her role on Corrie, where she played Miss Hannigan in Annie the Musical.
Along with Shirley Valentine and One Man Two Guvnors at the Haymarket Theatre in London, she also played Kelly in the late Kay Mellor’s musical Fat Friends.
Jodie has experience performing on cruise ships; she was one of the main performers for several months on the Disney Wonder and has appeared on This Morning and The Alan Titchmarsh Show.
But before she became famous for playing Nancy in Oliver in the West End after winning I Do Anything, she actually began her career in cabaret in Blackpool.
Who is the boyfriend of Jodie Prenger?
Near Preston, Jodie resides with her boyfriend Simon Booth and their adopted animals.
Meeting in 2010, they became engaged in 2012.
The celebrity previously told Manchester Evening News: “My animals and my fella, Simon, like it when I’m at home.
“I love taking care of rescued animals. Honestly, I like animals better than people! I would dedicate my life to saving animals if I didn’t do what I do.
Fortunately, we have enough space at our home, which is close to Preston, for the three rescue cows, three rescue ducks, three rescue cats, and three rescue dogs we currently have, she continued.
