Actress Vicky Entwistle, who plays who plays Janice Battersby on the soap opera Coronation Street, was traveling with her husband Andrew Chapman when two male fans asked to take Vicky’s photograph. Well apparently her hubby wasn’t too thrilled with this because a fight broke out resulting in one of the men being punched and Andrew being charged with assault. The altercation took place on the Manchester Victoria to Clitheroe train. Sounds pretty embarrassing for Vicky to me.

Entwistle was born in Accrington, Lancashire, England. Although her father wanted her to be a lawyer Vicky was bit by the acting bug and nothing could stop her from making her dream come true. In fact as a teenager she worked a night job at a local supermarket so she could attend drama school during the day. Her double duty and hard work paid off because Vicky was granted a scholarship to Drama Centre London. She graduated from there in 1992 and shortly after made her stage debut as Parkoe in Night Must Fall. Entwistle also appeared on stage in the production Merlin.

Vicky’s television roles include BBC’s Our Tune and and Against All Odds. Her big break came in 1997 when she landed the part of the big mouth machinist Janice Battersby in the ITV soap opera. After she became a household name Vicky was often referred to as the “the fat one”. It was because of this scrutiny that Vicky eventually lost 42 lbs and released her own self help exercise DVD called Vicky’s WOW! Weight Off Workout.

Vicky Entwistle is a Coronation Street actress who is adored by fans so much that her husband allegedly got annoyed by two the other day resulting in his being charged with assault.
