Dawn honours Tarmey at charity bash

Former Coronation Street star Liz Dawn helped raise £13,000 at a charity dinner held in honour of her former onscreen husband Bill Tarmey on Friday.
The 73-year-old actress battled to recover from heart surgery last month so she could attend the memorial for Tarmey, who passed away last year.
Dawn, who also has lung disease emphysema, paid tribute to Tarmey at the bash in Manchester, which generated the money for Brain Tumour Research.
The actor's widow Ally told reporters: "It's been very emotional."
Dawn and Tarmey played popular couple Vera and Jack Duckworth on the long-running soap.
