Coronation Street icon Julie Goodyear, 81, suffers from dementia

Coronation Street icon Julie Goodyear, 81, has revealed she suffers from dementia.

Her beloved husband Scott Brand released a statement on Wednesday saying, “My dear wife and I have had to accept this heartbreaking diagnosis.

“Unfortunately Julie has been suffering from forgetfulness for some time and we have sought medical advice and help.

“But we now know there is no hope of a turnaround – and that her condition will gradually, if not soon, get worse.

“We have made the decision to make the diagnosis public as Julie still enjoys visiting friends and going out for dinner.

Inevitably, she’s recognized and fans love meeting her — and them them — but she can get confused, especially when she’s tired. I hope people will understand.’

Julie remains a patron of Willow Wood Hospice in Greater Manchester. She wants to highlight the great work of the hospices who do so much to support patients and families with dementia.
