Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Betty Diana Coupland (5 March 1928 - 10 November 2006) was an English actress best remembered for her role as Jean Abbott on Bless This House, which she played from 1971 to 1976. Coupland was born in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire in 1928, the only child of Elsie (n e Beck) and Denis Coupland, and originally wanted to be a ballet dancer, but she could not fulfill this ambition due to a horse-riding accident. Her music career began at the age of 11. Barney Colehan, a BBC producer, heard Coupland sing and invited her onto one of his radio shows. By the time she reached 14, she was singing full time at the Mecca Locarno in Leeds, and the following year, moved to London with her parents, where she became a resident singer at Mecca's Tottenham Court Road ballroom.show more
