Corrie viewers floored as they realise Paula Wilcox's actual age

Coronation Street fans have been left stunned after realising how old Paula Wilcox is.

The actress plays Elaine Jones in the ITV soap. She is the mother of Tim (Joe Duttine) and made her arrival when Yasmeen (Shelley King) was behind bars after attacking her abusive husband Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew).

Elaine revealed herself as Geoff’s ex and someone who he also coercively controlled. She was then part of the trial surrounding Geoff, who managed to walk free.

However, during the episodes that celebrated the soap’s 60th anniversary, Geoff died after falling from the roof of the Nazir household.

Most recently, Elaine has been at the centre of a storyline involving murderous Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).

Elaine is currently engaged to Stephen but remains unaware that he has killed three people. A few weeks ago, she ended up in hospital after Stephen swapped her blood pressure pills for caffeine ones. He did this hoping that Elaine would die and he’d get some life insurance money, but she’s now back to full health after a period of recovery.

If Elaine and Stephen manage to tie the knot without any drama, this means Audrey (Sue Nicolls) will become Elaine’s mother-in-law, which was topic of conversation recently for some Corrie fans.

Taking to Twitter, many realised the small age gap between Sue and Paula.

Paula is 73, while Sue is 79 and for many, they couldn’t believe the difference!

‘Woah…Audrey is going to be Elaine’s mother in law. I just realised. They look the same age!’, one fan wrote.

Lovely Audrey looks younger than dippy Elaine #Corrie

Woah… Audrey is going to be Elaine’s mother in law. I just realised. They look the same age! #Corrie

Another said: ‘There’s only 6 years between Audrey and Elaine (as actresses)’.

To muddle your minds even further, then get this. The age gap between Sue and her on-screen daughter, Helen Worth, was also picked up by Corrie viewers a few months ago.

Helen is 72, meaning there is just 7 years between her and Sue!

And only one year between the Gail Platt actress and Paula…our heads hurt…
