Who was Nita Valerie?

Harking back to "The Road to Coronation Street" I was fascinated to the point of delerium by the mention of actress Nita Valerie, the Ena Sharples who never was.

Ms Valerie was something of a name in theatre circles. She is also listed as something of a supporting actress, including a one episode appearance in "Corrie" in 1966 as cleaner Polly Sagan.

The "Other Ena", Nan Marriott-Watson seemingly was a star on Broadway so it would have been an interesting journey to the cobbles of Weatherfield.

If anyone knows more about these two unsung heroes, please let me know!
