Amy Gibson (née Foster) was a tenant of 9 Coronation Street from 1950 to 1960. At 45, she'd given up hope of marrying when she was introduced to 52-year-old bookies clerk Ted Gibson. It was love at first sight and they were married in April 1950 , taking on No.9 at around the same time.

Ten years after moving in, the Gibsons won £20,000 on a coupon and left for a world cruise in November 1960 before settling in Dorset.

Amy worked at Miami Modes alongside Elsie Tanner.

Amy first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
