The next few months will see sadness on the Street as we watch Hayley's demise to pancreatic cancer. And already my thoughts are turning to who might be there to wave her goodbye.
The most obvious person to this fan, is for Becky McDonald to return for Hayley's funeral.
Actress Katherine Kelly, who played Becky, has gone on to do some wonderful work since leaving the Street and is currently playing s a ruthless newspaper editor in the second series of the acclaimed BBC1 drama The Field Of Blood.
But could Becky return for Hayley's final farewell - and do you think she should?
Maybe Hayley's son could turn up and cause a bit of bother, hoping for some money from her will? Or could Hayley's Uncle Bert return to say goodbye - or did he pop off, anyone know?
