Sandra Gough (born 2nd August, 1943) is an British actress best known for her role on Coronation Street as Irma Barlow, daughter of Stan and Hilda Ogden, which she played from 1964 to 1971. She also had minor parts on the Street in July 1963 as Marjorie Platt and in December of the same year as a Factory Girl.
Sandra has also had stints in Emmerdale, as Doreen Shuttleworth, then Nellie Dingle, and she played Paul Calf's mother in the Steve Coogan vehicles Paul Calf's Video Diary, Pauline Calf's Wedding Video and Coogan's Run.
She left the Street in the late 1960's when her screen husband, Alan Rothwell, gave up his role as David Barlow. She came back for several weeks in December 1969 when Irma visited her parents for Christmas and returned permanently in April 1970 when the producers decided to kill David off in Australia to allow Irma to be seen again. However on 13th June 1970 Sandra married her Spanish husband, Miguel Mayor, and started to take unauthorised time off in mid-1971 to be with him, claiming illness. She returned to the programme for a brief time in October 1971 but was sacked two months later and vanished from the programme abruptly. Sandra was quoted in the press saying that she was pleased with the result as she was tired of Irma and wanted to leave.
