I grew up watching the great Jean Alexander, starring in her role playing Hilda Ogden, alongside Bernard Youens (Stan Ogden) and the late great Geoffrey Hughes as Eddie Yates in Coronation Street.
A staple of TV during those times, a name and face known to almost all.
I see a lot of Stan and Hilda, in the current roles played by Sally and Tim in today’s Corry, the ups and downs, the fun, the sadness, etc.
For many at that time, everybody knew a Stan an Hilda in real life, but the roles reflected the way we used to be.
The trials and tribulations of a couple struggling to make ends meet and hold their own in a community/world that was always one step ahead of them.
I will always have fond memories of the work Jean did, thank you.
