I’m not a huge fan of Corrie or soaps for that matter, but whenever I’ve sat down with my better-half, Emma, and watched the beloved drama I’ve always enjoyed storylines involving Blanche Hunt.
It is with a sense of sadness that I’ve just learned that Maggie Jones, the actress who played the popular character, has died.
A favourite scene of mine involving Blanche is a more recent one, when Peter Barlow attends an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting accompanied by Ken, Deidree and Blanche. Well you can imagine, it was hilarious!
See for yourself.
God bless you Maggie and may you rest in peace. Britain’s soap watchers will surely miss you.
