I just want to say right off the bat that Izzy is one my favourite characters. I think she’s got the potential to be one of those classic Corrie working class women who don’t take crap from anyone, even if Gary Windass is pulling a Charlie Stubbs on her at the moment. I also love her giant black coats.
Anyhow, I recently learned that Cherylee Houston, who plays Izzy, was on an episode of ‘Little Britain’:
I could only find the clip in German but the gist of it is that Andy says “I don’t want that one.” before pushing her to her doom. As you might have guessed, the actress uses a wheelchair in real life.
I’m hoping 2012 sees her move to the street for more story lines.
