Mollie Sugden has died, aged 86.
How you remember her depends on where you came in:
1) the 60s, when she stickybeaked her way around Weatherfield as Nellie Harvey;
2) the 70s, when she split her time between being Nerys Hughes’s mum and working in the most threadbare department store in the world;
3) the 80s, when she was still working in the most threadbare department store in the world despite the inversely proportional ratio of ‘sales drives’ to customers, but also being a housekeeper forever walking in on Christopher Blake in a compromising position; or
4) the 90s, when she lounged on a giant sofa in the That’s Life! studio reading newspaper clippings before getting stuck climbing in and out of windows of Millstone Manor.
Come back, Mrs Noah!…
…ah, too late.
