Farewell to Blanche

Maggie Jones - Corrie Icon

This had absolutely NOTHING to do with knitting but I’m devastated to hear that the Coronation Street actress Maggie Jones who played Deirdre Barlow’s acid tongued mother Blanche Hunt has passed away.

She was the best thing on Corrie with lines like “Good looks are a curse, Deirdre. You and Kenneth should count yourselves lucky” one of the many gems that passed her corrosive lips. She made many a hard night’s knitting-to- a- deadline a bit more bearable.

Cheers Maggie, you’ll be missed. x
