Adele Rose

Between 1961 and 1998 Adele Rose wrote 457 episodes of Coronation Street, three of them co-written with Jack Rosenthal, Eddie Maguire and Alan Hardman.

A Salford-born former secretary she was encouraged to try to become a writer by Jack Rosenthal (with whom she co-wrote two episodes). She first saw programme when it began in December 1960 and felt "that perhaps the script needed a woman's touch. They had all those women in the cast, and all the writers were men." Having previously worked at Granada as a secretary, she rang up Harry Kershaw who encouraged her to send in a sample script.

A prolific writer of scripts for other programmes such as The Dustbinmen and Z Cars she created and wrote the popular BBC children's soap Byker Grove. In 1993 she was one of the joint-winners of the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Award. She was one of the writers who left the show in the wake of Brian Park becoming Producer in 1997. One of her final contributions was the story idea for the VHS spin-off Coronation Street: Viva Las Vegas!.

Adele was one of the bridesmaids at Patricia Phoenix's wedding to Alan Browning in 1972.
