Raquel Catherine Watts (née Wolstenhulme) was a long-serving barmaid at the Rovers Return and the first wife of Curly Watts, with whom she had a daughter, Alice Watts.

Raquel started at the Rovers in 1992 when she was taken under Bet Gilroy's wing. She worked there for four years, while taking on the occasional modelling assignment. Her ultimate goal was to model for a big designer. For most of her time in Coronation Street, Raquel only thought of Curly as a friend although he loved her from afar. It was only when on/off lover Des Barnes continually cheated on her and used her that Raquel became attracted to Curly as she knew he would respect her, however this never provided a solid foundation for a marriage and in 1996 Raquel walked out on Curly to go for a modelling job in Kuala Lumpur.

Raquel gave birth to Alice after her split from Curly and eventually settled in France as housekeeper of Armand de Beaux. In 2000, pregnant with Armand's baby, she made a brief return to Weatherfield to ask Curly for a divorce so she could marry Armand, also telling Curly about his daughter's existence.

Raquel was noted for her naivety and her dim-wittedness, but also her desire to better herself and also seeing the best in people.
