Daran Little, the ex-Coronation Street writer and archvivist, paid tribute to Jean Alexander on the radio today. Indeed, Daran's voice was the first I heard this morning when I switched on the radio and heard the very sad news that Jean Alexander had passed away.
Daran pays a wonderful tribute to the late actress and to the character of Hilda Ogden. The interview is only a couple of minutes long and is definitely worth listening to.
