Corrie’s Blanche Hunt Has The Last Laugh

Hello and welcome to another edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.

Many are aware by now that Maggie Jones – who played Weatherfield’s battleaxe Blanche Hunt  – died in December at the age of 75. 

However, it would appear that we haven’t quite heard the last of the legendary character because, according to the Mirror, she’s set to make a number of humorous put-downs about her family and friends from beyond the grave. 

 In a double episode to commemorate the late Maggie Jones’s career with Coronation Street, Blanche Hunt will make her final  jibes when her last will and testament is read out on screen later this year.

The Mirror reports that Blanche will say of son-in-law Ken Barlow that "he’ll try to bury me on the cheap" – she may just have a point, knowing Ken. Blanche will then insult Betty and snub her food, preferring Elliot’s pies at her funeral and "definitely none of those terrible Betty’s Hotpots." 

If that wasn’t bad enough, she’ll then have one final laugh at the expense of nosey newsagent Norris by making him believe he’ll inherit something – only to reveal that she wants to cancel her subscription to Crossword Monthly… ha ha ha, poor old Norris! But that’s just typical Blanche Hunt humour isn’t it? She’s certainly gonna be missed on’t Coronation Street’s cobbles. 

Anyway, Blanche gets her on-screen funeral in May and if the reports about her final put-downs are true, you certainly won’t want to miss the double episode which will commemorate the passing of a Coronation Street legend.

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for the result of  this week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
