Angela Hawthorne married Derek Wilton in 1985, although around that time he was seeing Mavis Riley. Her son Neville made Derek's life a misery at work.

In 1995, Derek's rival Norris Cole was set to marry Angela with Derek acting as best man, although Derek drove Norris to the wrong church as revenge for Norris stealing Arthur, one of Derek's gnomes. Following Derek's death in 1997 Angela did not attend his funeral as she found it too upsetting. By the time Norris had moved into Coronation Street in 1999 he and Angela had divorced.

Her last visit was in 2005 when she turned up at The Kabin and offered Norris a job as he was looking for work elsewhere, although he remained at The Kabin. Angela died in August 2007 following a heart attack, with Neville breaking the news to Norris.

Before leaving Weatherfield in June 2019, Norris thought about Angela when reminiscing about his other memories from his time in the street.

Despite being mentioned frequently by other characters Angela only appeared in a handful of episodes. At Norris and Angela's wedding the character was seen approaching the church but her face was not seen.
