Sally Bankes appeared in Coronation Street as Petula Peach, local abattoir owner and would-be love interest for a decidedly nervous Fred Elliott in May and October 2003.

She worked as a bank manager for twenty-five years before becoming a professional actress although she was involved with youth theatre from the age of nine. She has since appeared in Little Britain, Doctors, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Heartbeat and the comedy sketch show Tittybangbang.

Living in Southport, she is a director of the Operatic New Generation Youth Theatre in her hometown and also teaches performing arts course at Southport College. In addition, she co-presents a Sunday morning show on Radio Lancashire.
