Patricia Ford (born circa 1950 in Lancashire) played two roles on Coronation Street: Joyce Banks in July 1978 and Pauline Walsh intermittently between November 1985 and February 1986. Ironically, both of these characters were factory workers at Baldwin's Casuals.

Other credits include roles in Funny Man, Dempsey and Makepeace, Biggles, Love Hurts, The Bill, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, and films Red Rose, I Am Bob and Powder. In May 2012, she appeared under the name "Tricia Ford" on The Hoarders Next Door, in which a clip of her Coronation Street appearances was shown, before some experts tried to help her clear her home.
