Duke of Bedford

John Ian Robert Russell, 13th Duke of Bedford (24th May, 1917 - 25th October, 2002) was a British peer of the realm who made a cameo appearance in Episode 1288 (21st May 1973) and Episode 1289 (23rd May 1973) of Coronation Street when the residents made a trip to his stately home, Woburn Abbey. This wasn't the Duke's first acting experience; he played a convict in the 1961 film Nothing Barred.

A celebrated writer and journalist, the Duke also allowed the nudist film Nudist Paradise (1958) to be filmed at Woburn Abbey.
