ONE night last week a man came up to Anna Friel in a restaurant and gave her a rose which he said his friend wanted her to have. When she looked around, she saw that the friend was a woman. Female attention is something Anna Friel has got used to since she started playing the part of Beth Jordache in Brookside - a teenager who discovers she's a lesbian and has an affair with her best friend. The high point of the affair came in January when the pair kissed in front of 6 million viewers: the first ever pre-nine-o'clock watershed lesbian kiss. Tonight Anna narrates, video- diary style, the story of the Jordache family's troubles, in a one-hour special for Channel 4.
