It's interesting that Rob and five other voters have faith in her claims!

Ha ha ha! Bet was arguing with husband Alec Gilroy in a recent episode that Sarah's character Raquel wasn't an appropriate barmaid, moaning about her being brainless, which we know to be anything but true in real life. She came out with, "Has she learnt anything since she was first able to walk?"
Alec replied, "When you walk like that, you don't need to!" 😂😂😹😂😂
I truly believe that being the fairly tall 5ft7 contributes to her eye-catching walk. I mean, why do models have to be so tall? It's because their strutting around turns heads!
Maybe that's why I feel so much more confident walking in high-heeled shoes and the higher they are, the more positive I feel. There's no way I should ever, ever criticise a guy for wearing built-up shoes - but I know I have!!! 😏

Ha ha ha! Phyllis just gave a £5 loan to the gorgeous Raquel and received a kiss on the cheek from her. She didn't complain about THAT! In fact, she came over all coy! 😍👸😘
Shortly after Sarah started in 'Coronation Street', I read an article about her being anything but bimbo-like! She's certainly proved herself as a serious actress after she left C Street. 'Happy Valley' was one of the best serialised thrillers I've ever seen. There have been plenty more as well which my mother saw and even she loved Sarah; Mum was extremely fastidious about the actors and actresses she raved about, I can tell you! 😉

Phyllis's rough description of Raquel:
"Someone who drapes herself in a nightdress the size of a pocket handkerchief!" 😂😂😂😹
Then she added of Des Barnes, "If he carries on like this, he'll be old before he's 30!" 😝🖕
Well, I like her! ✌️
👍 "Raquel and Des are flatmates - so far!
Sarah gets 5ft7.

I've been waiting long and eagerly to see Sarah make her debut in 'Classic Coronation Street', and now, with it being the start of 1991, she has! She is as slim as a reed and working in that awful 'Bettabuy' supermarket, with the title of 'Miss Bettabuy'! Would I like to have some fun defacing their 'Bettabuy' signs!
Sarah is definitely the tallest of the girls working there and she would no way pass for even a fraction below the 5ft7 mark. That's exactly what she gets from me this evening. Five seven for this gorgeous and intelligent actress.

I am over the moon to hear about Sarah's much-deserved decoration, which she received from the smashing Prince William, according to my boyfriend, who is equally delighted!

Thought she would be at least 5ft8 looking at her in Last Tango In Halifax with her frame etc maybe it can make her appear taller than she is plus she is wearing high heels so It can be tougher to gauge I guess.

I thought she might have been a little taller, perhaps 5ft8.5. This woman is my favourite actress to have carved herself a career since leaving 'Coronation Street'. Her performance in 'Happy Valley' was just so outstanding; I laughed with her, cried with her and felt her pain. She is such a treasure and should be knighted for her contribution to TV drama! Sarah, I love you!

She has also been described as 5' 8" and 172 cm. She looks nearer 5' 8" to me.
